Wanna-be crafty

I'm not necessarily a crafty person. I have always wanted to be...it has to be in my genes somewhere because my mom is overflowing with it. I LOOOOVE reading crafty blogs, though. Some of you probably follow Make It and Love It. If not, you should. It has all sorts of really cute ideas that are inexpensive and easy to do. Today I caught the crafty bug from reading her blog and she had this post on making hair clips and headbands out of vinyl. For anyone who knows me you know I LOOOOOOVE hair pretties! I drooled and drooled and whined and cried over this blog...I don't have any vinyl. So, I decided to go to the Goodwill box and see what kind of stuff I had in there. I had some belts that were HOT in 2005...not so hot now. So I decided I would try to cut them up and use them instead of vinyl. And by golly, it worked! I wasted almost 5 hours making these puppies. Can you say SUPER CUTE HOMEMADE FROM THE HEART CHRISTMAS PRESENTS??? :) (BTW...pretend you are surprised if you get some of these in the mail from me...)


Then I had this leftover piece of belt that was too cute to just throw away. So I made it into a headband! I just added some of the little flowers I made from the belt, and it turned out like this...


I am pretty proud of myself. My fingers are sore from glue gun burns, but it was totally worth it! Now...I have to go clean up my mess. Sigh. Now that you are feeling inspired...go make some hair pretties!
