Yo Yo Headband Tutorial

Yo Yo Headband at DoingSplendid.com

I made this cute headband for my daughter and thought it would be nice to make a yo yo headband tutorial to go with it. Just in case there is anyone else out there who would like to make one too!

It is pretty simple and easy and really doesn’t take very much time at all. You don’t even need a sewing machine! Sometimes it is nice not to have to lug that heavy thing out for a project!

This is what you need:

  • scraps of fabric
  • needle and thread
  • buttons
  • scraps of felt
  • elastic headband
  • hot glue gun/hot glue sticks

First of all cut out a circle of fabric. Mine was about 4 inches in diameter.
