Gift Idea: Make a Dozen “Blooming” Headbands – Part 1 & 2

by Kim on December 4, 2009

If you’ve been with YCMT for a while, you know that this is a project we showed last year at this time! I thought it would be fitting to show both videos again. You can download the reversible headbands for free here.

Don’t forget to follow our entire gift-giving series! You can win just by following along! You can pick up a blog button and find all the details here.

Part 1 of the video will show you how to make the decorative can with a handle. Part 2 will explain how these “headbands” become a “dozen blooming roses!” Have fun!

Part 2:

Here’s the “stocking stuffer question!” Post your answer below!
