homemade holidays DIY {Ear Warmer Headband}

I don't know about you guys but when winter comes, my ears take a beating. I feel like I'm always forgetful when it comes to covering them or keeping them warm and then disappointed that I forgot. Well friends, here is your solution, an ear warmer headband. I came across this idea for it about a week ago and jumped at the chance to give it a try. And friends, it was a success!

It was another really easy project to put under my small sewing belt. I started with an old thermal that I don't wear that often and 'upcycled' (another case of new uses for old things) it into my ear warmer headband.

I simply cut the shape of it. Roughly, 24" long X 5" wide and tapered the ends, hemmed the edges, added a button to one end and a button hole to the other and it's done. For added flare, I made a flower out of the same material. (basically just 5 or so cut flower shapes that I layered onto the side of the headband) You could also add a handmade bow for a little extra decoration.

For more detailed instructions follow this tutorial. Happy sewing!
