Sooo Michelle and Angie have been bugging me to make these headbands for months ever since they saw the prototype I made for a fashion show last fall. I really like them a lot, but the thing that's been holding me back is that the baubles are made from styrofoam balls.
These particular ones are made from styrofoam balls I found at Value Village, so I don't mind using them since they're second hand....but I don't know what I'm going to do if I want to make more! I really really really don't want to use new styrofoam since it's not a very eco-friendly material and can't be recycled. I've looked everywhere for alternatives...and eep! I'm stuck! It needs to be something smooth, lightweight, and perfectly round. Do you guys have any ideas?Angie was suggesting that I find a place that throws away dented ping pong balls. Hmmm.
So anyway, for now, there are only two headbands. Hopefully I'll find a solution so I can make more!
Check them out in my Etsy shop...
