Necklace Redo Series #2

*Don't forget to enter the Special Plate Giveaway here!*

Time for Necklace Redo #2!!  How about a headband?
Materials:
Necklace
Stretchy headband
Needle/thread
Felt/fabric
Glue gun

I used a headband I already had...


Started by taking off the clasp and ring....


I cut the headband in half. Then I sewed and wrapped the thread around the beads....


Before sewing the other side I measured it on my head...had to trim some off....


Sewed the other side and then cut some felt strips or you could use fabric....just something to cover up the sewing in case you wear the headband with your hair up.......


Glued the felt on both sides...



...and the finished product!!! Look at me and my Photoscaping skills!!

Thought you'd like to see it action!!  Would love to hear any different ideas about attaching the necklace to the headband!

Gosh I need to be on the lookout for old necklaces at garage sales this spring/summer. I love this look of this one because it looks more "adult" for me to pull it off! Thanks so much for linking up to Terrific Under Ten!
