Hello Ribbon Retreat Readers. I’m so excited to be sharing a fun project with you today – Faux Leather Hair Accessories! I am thrilled that The Ribbon Retreat has started to stock faux leather. They have great color choices for fall and some metallics. With school getting back in session I though a new hair accessory was tops on my list.

Faux Leather at The Ribbon Retreat

Here are a few supplies I like to use:

Faux Leather
DMC Floss
E-6000 or Fabri-Tac Glue
Elastic
Scissors – Nice Sharp Ones
Embellishments – Pearls, Crystals
Optional: Cutting Tools – Cricut, Cutting Press, Silhouette

(So…don’t mind the hair. When a 12 year old takes the photos, he doesn’t pay attention to the hair, just the product for the photo.)

First up, a pony tail cover:

Cut by hand an oval, about 3 inches long. Using a punch, place a hole on each end. Add any embellishments to the oval. I used flowers on mine and embellished with metal grommets. I purchased a plastic hair chopstick from a local beauty shop or you could use a real chopstick

A simple floral headband or hair clip:

Cut flowers or hearts from faux leather. Stitch around the edges with DMC floss color of choice. Measure your headband elastic. Cut the ends and stitch them together. Using glue (I like E-6000 or Fabri-Tac), stick flowers to elastic headband. I took a piece of faux leather and glued it to the back of the headband for support. Let dry and wear.

Jazz up a trucker hat:

Cut your flowers or shapes and stitch around the edges. Cover your trucker hat with fabric and stitch around the edges with colorful floss. Add your flowers or shapes.

Flower pony O’s:

Cut 2 flowers from the faux leather. Cut 2 slits in the center of each. Thread elastic through slits and stitch ends together. Using DMC floss, stitch around the edges of the flower and through the center to cover the elastic. Your Pony O’s are ready to go.

Faux Leather is so easy to work with. It cuts easily with scissors or use a cutting tool for precise shapes. Either way you can create a slew of fun and easy projects with it like earrings, key chains, book covers or hair accessories. I hope you have enjoyed my post.

We love the way you do things, Adrienne! You make accessorizing with Faux Leather FUN! Thank you so much for your talents! All of us blog readers out there appreciate it! 🙂 Take a look at some of Adrienne’s other projects on our blog! Fun, Fun Stuff!!!
