Today’s Pinspiration was definitely something that inspired me but ended up in a big ol’ Pinterest fail. If you’ve clicked over thinking you’re going to see some cool DIY headbands, they are NOT done my me as you’ll see my epic failure on today’s post.
I was going to try and do something else last minute and then I thought, hey, might as well be honest and get a laugh out of this one. Not every Pinterest attempt is going to turn out perfectly and look like the pretty Pinterest picture.
So the pin that inspired me is still really cool.
Take a couple of scraps of cool fabric, braid them and turn them into a nifty headband – seems pretty easy, right? I should have stopped at “DIY,” as I’ll admit I’m not really one to do it yourself. Ever. But I really thought I could do this one.
I used this fabric I received from Neutrogena for a cool post that’s coming (stay tuned!) It’s intended to be a piece you use to pull your hair back to wipe makeup off. It didn’t really fit my head or hair but I thought the fabric & colors were awesome, so hey, why not turn it into a headband that worked for me!
Silver lining, my Pinterest fail is now a cat toy (he loves it!) Who knew. Think it’s pinnable as a cat toy?:
