love tattoo headband


there's a magazine that with every issue you get a little craft packet project - Mollie Makes magazine. these are great little projects to pack in our "at the cabin" art bin. i especially liked this project: a retro tattoo heart brooch. and i do love a good brooch, but i hate putting a pin thru my clothes, so i thought i'd make this one into a headband instead. so everything you need to make this is in the little packet - except the pattern to cut out the pieces! that is in the actual magazine, which i didn't have, so i freehand cut out the heart and the flowers and banner and letters. i also glued some little jewels onto the flowers. i added a little padding inside the heart as well (which didn't come in the packet, but the image looks like it's stuffed a little.) and finally i sewed the heart onto a skinny elastic headband via a circle felt piece. i love it! i will definitely be sporting this on valentines day.
