DIY | OSCAR DE LA RENTA INSPIRED EMBELLISHED HEADBAND

4.07.2013
When Buzz Feed approached me about coming up with a runway inspired DIY, I immediately thought of embellishment. It has been a big trend this past season and I have seen it pop up all over the runway on everything from shoes to bags to even sweatshirts. I am a big fan of this trend, as seen from many of my past DIY's (like this), and wanted to put together a fun and easy DIY that everyone can do to add a little bling to their life. Once I saw this beauty from Oscar De La Renta, I knew what the project would be. Full tutorial after the break...

Materials:
- thin gold headband (here and here)
- 5 vintage embellished buttons from eBay
- glue gun and glue sticks
- wire cutter pliers

Steps:
1. Cut the back shanks off of the buttons using the wire cutter pliers.
2. Add a dab of glue from the glue gun onto the center of the metal headband.
3. Place the button onto the glued area and press down firmly. Let dry for a minute. Then, continue gluing the rest of the buttons onto the headband so they are equally spaced.

Thank you again to Buzz Feed for featuring my DIY!
