DIY Beaded browband: Can a non-crafty person do this?

We will soon find out! I bought an "empty" browband for $20, about $10 worth of tools and supplies, and maybe $10 worth of (orange jasper) beads. I have a booklet on how to do the beading and fastening. I have been an abject failure at most crafts. Even in eighth grade Home Economics, I was exempted from wearing the mandatory a-line skirt that I made. Even the teacher recognized it was  just too awful to wear.

The browband, however, is motivating. If this works I can make cool browbands for less than $50 (far less!).

 I'll let you know what happens.


  1. Hope the browband making goes well, you've put me in a mind to try it myself! Love the blog and seeing Ri's progression and Harvey updates, so a big thank you from Ireland for keeping me interested and entertained!

  2. Where did you find the "empty" browband? I bead browbands, but I do the flat leather browbands. (beading browbands is fun!!)

  3. A friend of mine invited us over to make custom brow bands. After seeing everyone elses custom browbands next to the ones I made, I felt sad that mine were just so boring... But they were fun to make! Good luck!
