Shorts are finally an option now that it actually feels like spring, though the weather is still not quite summer-ready yet (but neither are my legs). Found this vintage belt while going through my mom's treasures and I must say I was surprised by two things: 1) my mother had an unimaginably small waist even after giving birth to two 2) certain styles can really stand the erosion of time; even up until now, this belt goes with practically any outfit. And I must say I like it even more that my initials are on it :)
p.s: Though it might be slightly difficult to tell whether I am laughing or crying in the last picture, it's the former...just so you know.

2) Measure the length of ribbon you need to fit around your head, leaving approximately an extra 3-4 inches on each end. Pin the area where you want the large studs to be placed on the headband prior to securing the studs on. Then, secure the small studs by equally spacing them from one another. This is where creativity takes part in the project. Play around with the variations; pattern it however you like!
Tip: Make sure the backing of the studs are firmly pressed down flat to avoid them from catching onto your hair.
4) After the snaps are sewn, hide the stitching with a large stud and trim the two ends so that they are in matching length.
5) Ta~Da :) Easy.
You always have options: Instead of using snaps, you can try just tying a bow at the back (approximately 1.5-1.6 meter of ribbon will be needed). For something more dramatic, loosely braid two to three headbands together.
