All you need is some strip, a needle and string, a clasp and a few globules. While there are a kaleidoscope of dabs and doodads accessible to purchase new, this month is Buy Nothing New Month, so get roused and uncover your old dabs, jumbled studs, pearl necklaces, and diamontes and other sparkly fortunes to make something genuinely extraordinary!

On the off chance that you don’t have a reserve, operation shops have an astonishing cluster of utilized gems.

I had a go at making these pieces with some direction and motivation from Riot Art and Craft, I’m so content with the outcomes!

Use tweezers and hold the dot to the paste firearm to apply a limited quantity to each dab.

When you finish, stick a ‘dangly’ dab, for example, this dark precious stone one in the middle of two or three the globules on the edge.

Stage 2. Headband

To make your headband, hold the twisted trim up to your head and exercise to what extent you might want it over the front. Trim and delicately plunge the closures in clear paste, this will forestall fraying.

Next cut two 30cm lengths of lace, and overlay the tips of your lace inwards 1cm and iron. Hand Sew the closures under each finish of the trim.

Join your beaded element to your favored side, and paste set up. Tie over your brow and in a bow at the back.
