We wanted a bright and cheery way to dress up girls' hair as the gray clouds settle in for Fall in Seattle. These fabric-covered button hair bands are just the thing.
If you saw our tutorial on fabric-covered button thumbtacks and magnets, you'll notice this is the same process minus one step. Instead of removing the metal loop on the back of the button, leave it in place. Then cover your button with your fabric of choice. To add the elastic, thread one end part way through the metal loop, then slip the other end of the elastic through the loop it formed and pull it tight. So darn easy we hardly believe it ourselves.
Make a fun variation by using a silk flower. Position your elastic on the back of the flower, then cover it with a small piece of felt that has been coated with a strong craft glue to secure. Easy peasy!
