A few months ago, I was in Gymboree and saw cute shoelace headbands. When I spotted some shamrock laces for a dollar, I thought I'd try making one. I think mine is a bit poofier than the original but it'll be a fun bit o' green to wear on St. Patrick's Day.
As my base, I used a headband from the dollar store and covered it with a thin strip of green duct tape. If you can find a green headband, even better. I used two shoelaces held together and kept them in place with hot glue.
I just folded them up and down and put dabs of glue where they were needed to hold everything in place.
