DIY Zipper Headband

DIY Zipper Headband

I guess this is a week of headbands. ;) Have you ever stopped to think about what a cool gadget the zipper is? You can close things with one hand, they make a funny noise, they have "teeth"... Zippers are such a fun material to use in crafty things, and I can't believe that I never thought to wear one as a headband before. (I did make shoe flowers out of zippers a couple years ago, but then I've also tried to make everything into a flower.) :)

What you need to make a zipper headband:

- Zipper (I like the industrial-looking zippers, you can find them at sewing stores.)
- Bobby pins

You don't need much for this one.

Pin one side of the zipper underneath your hair in the back. I unzipped the zipper a bit so that it would fan out on the top of my head. You don't have to do that, but I kind of like the look of it open. After you have one side pinned, just tuck the other side under your hair and pin it as well. You might need more than two bobby pins to keep everything secure, but the zipper's teeth do a pretty good job of keeping the zipper in place on your head. Although most things stay on my head... because they get lost in the craziness.

That's it! Bright zippers would look really neat as well. :)
