party headbands are my fave

July 24, 2013

Every party needs some headwear. Here’s an update on the tacky paper tiara that always clashes with your outfit. I call them phrase party bands.


To make your own you only need three items:
- sign characters (I found these near the office signs)
- headbands
- hot glue

Spell out your message with the characters and glue it on the headband. Done!

    These are adorable! I’m trading these for the cone party hats with the elastic string that puts a permanent crease in your chin.

    ok WHERE oh, WHERE did you find that Orla Kiely multi stem wallpaper? I need a roll for the wall below my staircase in my home and can’t find it for sale ANYWHERE. Even when i’ve searched online, it’s only available in the UK. Help a girl out? Please?

    So cute ! The best thing about headbands for babies is that you do not have to spend great amounts on expensive pieces. Even the simple ones really look great.

    You can use these pieces of bright handmade fashion jewellery to brighten up a
