Tutorial: Gold Starry Headband

 SO here is my tutorial for my birthday starry headband. I was inspired by this lady, Kat Von D.

All I know about her is that she has a lot of tattoos. She pulls them off and I like them. Also I like her headband. And her red hair. But not her bare stomach.

Here are my starry headband ingredients!

1) Pair of Scissors. I do not recommend haircutting scissors for this.
2) Glue gun (or super glue. or you can sew, that might be cool)
3) Gold Glittery craft paper. I was going to just buy regular card stock and paint/glitter it myself, but I found sheets of this instead!
4) Gold wired ribbon
5) Pen

Now just 3 easy steps!

Cut out 5 or 6 stars of your preference. I googled imaged stars on my iPad and traced them from there! Stencils would be nice if I had any.

Glue Stars onto the gold wired ribbon in desired placement.


Wear the crap out of it at your birthday party.

Also seen here in this video…

I promise my birthday is over now. Someone once told me that when you’re older than 25, your birthdays last a week. I made sure that happened this year.

    I love it!! Look at you being all crafty…er…I mean crafty in a good way ;)

    I think her name is Kat Von Dee…she used to have a reality show about her tattoo parlor.

    That’s Kat Von D. She’s actually not the person he cheated on Sandra Bullock with. That was a different tattooed lady. But she dated him after they split, and guess what? He apparently cheated on HER, dozens of times. But I do love the headband! And happy (belated) bday! Thanks for the tutorial!

    As someone else had commented that that is Kat Von D. She is actually a really great girl (I know from personal experience) Don’t you do you’re research? You might want to consider doing so. You just made yourself look pretty ignorant.

    I recognized your headband right away! It is so cute. I assumed you got it from the same place Kat Von D got hers on easy, it was featured in a magazine I think?? I had bookmarked the easy seller. She makes really adorable hair accessories, including a glitter heart headband for vday. http://www.etsy.com/shop/giantdwarf

    I love the headband, you can also use sparkly foam for the stars and glue or sew them on.
    And I dont think its really a big deal if you dont know who Kat Von D is. Whos got time to keep up on who all these celebrities are.

    Dear Lola LA-

    You just made yourself look pretty ignorant by using “you’re” when you should have used “your”. While not knowing who Kat Von D is isn’t exactly a necessary life skill, proper grammar is.

    Beautiful: I hope you had a lovely time & an all-round wonderful birthday!

    BTW, agree with Jessica – if you’re going to be a meanie then you should expect some (justifiable) pedantic retaliation! I’m sure Mrs. Breinholt has far better things to be doing then keeping up with every celeb in every mag…

    Hey! My apologies! I catch bits and pieces of celeb gossip on Facebook, so I’m not surprised I got her mixed up with someone else. I’ll edit it soon enough!

    Also, she’s gorgeous and I was really just being playful and jokey.

    Awesome birthday pictures and vid, Reag. I hope it was a great one!

    @Stephanie B. – I thought I recognized that as a Giant Dwarf piece as well! I ordered one of the star bobby pins from her last year. They are even more beautiful in person! They are made from a really cool glitter glass… super fancy! I may need a valentine heart.

    Dear Jessica-

    Sorry for the typo! I know the difference between possessive adjective and the contraction of you and are… simple typo. It is just irresponsible to say things about people that are simply not true. I understood that Reagan was being snarky in her comments from the beginning.
