Christmas Bulb Headbands or THE GREATEST THING EVER

DSC01754
My mother is a third grade teacher, I think I need to say that to better explain why we are always doing arts and crafts projects. Or at least, it gives us an excuse. So when one of her fellow teachers received a Christmas bulb headband, my mother knew she had to have one too. I should also point out, I got my love of all things sparkly and glittery from her. This project was right up our alley over Thanksgiving. It was so much fun to make and the more ostentatious they look, the better. We went crazy with making them, and since showing her other teacher friends, we’ve got orders to make a few more! These are a great way to brighten up anyone’s holiday party and are better than any tacky Christmas sweater! We now are making hair barrettes and bowties at our Etsy shop: TheSheaShoppe

P.S. Don't feel like making your own or feelings something a little different? Check out our etsy shop! http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheSheaShoppe
