Frills and Flowers and Buttons and Bows

I'm so delighted to share these. I've been dreaming of such headbands since late last winter, and now that holiday festivities are approaching once again I gathered up lengths of ribbon, a handful of feathers, a vial of beads and three plain old plastic headbands. The outcome was a trio of new adornments. One is a tiny garden of silk, satin and crushed velvet. A second is a simple black band with antique button. And a third in deep green velvet is plumed and specked with gold. I think these would make lovely handmade presents - for the gals on your Christmas list or of course, for your bridesmaids and flower girls. The complete tutorial for these is up over at Project Wedding.

These headbands are absolutely stunning! They're so dreamy, like something I'd expect to see in a story that's half real life, half fairytale. Maybe I'll work up the courage and try to make one...

How do you manage to have such lovely materials on hand all of the time? Whenever I dream up a project, the expense of putting together all of the right pieces just squashes my budgeted little heart.
