You'll have so much fun making hair accessories when you see how easy they are to make. There are a lot of web pages about how to make hair accessories, but many of them don't have instructions on how to make the particular accessory, be it a hair bow, a hair clip or a headband.

I've gathered together a nice group of hair accessory projects, that you can make, which include a nice picture and the name of the website where you can get instructions for making the hair accessory.

It is amazing to me how many different and unique ways there are to make hair bows. I did notice that so many of the bow ideas could be changed slightly so the item could be used to make a hair clip or a headband also. I guess that is what crafting is really all about taking an idea and making it work for a particular need we have.

To make the cute felt flower headband shown above, go to iCandy handmade for the instructions.
