We interrupt to tell you this awesome deal! Pick Your Plum has iron on, glow in the dark, and chalkboard vinyl today!!!! Woot woot!
Also, Plaid Barn has Fold Over Elastic for only 99 cents a yard!!! Getting me a little somethin something.

Okay, here’s a couple of random tutes for head/hair stuff. I needed antenna, so I got a pack of 3 black elastic headbands, like these:

and some pipe cleaner, pompoms, and black thread and needle. I just wrapped the pipe cleaner around the headband:

and then sewed the pompoms on, not quite at the end of the pipe cleaner:

And then wrapped the pipe cleaner back over itself when the pompom was secure.

Super tricky headband, right?

Okay, now I did another experiment for anyone who wants to use it for Halloween. I got me a few packets of this:
Dyeing with Koolaid (4)
But ignore the Grape flavor. It basically didn’t work. Then, you dump them with some water into a pan and boil it:

And once it’s boiling, you dip your hair in. As much or as little as you want.

Quite the steamy picture, eh?
So this is what my hair looked like before:
Dyeing with Koolaid (14)
And then I dip dyed it in the strawberry koolaid to look like this:

And this:

I kept track so you could see how long it lasted.

If you bleach your hair, or color it a lot, yours will be a lot more vibrant than mine. Plus, my hair is dark. So keep that in mind. I don’t know about dyeing the whole head, but it’s not permanent, but it does take awhile to wash all the way out.

It’s very soft color now, but it’s still pink. So if that helps you do your hair awesome for Halloween, good deal! Here’s some more head/hair ideas for Halloween!

These headbands are just so much fun! Whether it goes with your costume or not, you should make one to wear to work that day. Don’t you think? Over at Sweet Charli.

If you haven’t seen these Rapunzel wigs floating around Pinterest, where were you Smile? It’s an idea you could use for making your own wig to work with your costumes. Over here at The Weekend Homemaker.

Here’s another take on Rapunzel wig. From Etsy.

Pin It!


  1. The best headwear you can choose is your hair itself, that's more than anything can ever imagine. But even with all that said, these five panel caps are still the latest thing to have entered the whole industry. It has the style, the quality, and the pull to really get people to wear it.

  2. Nice creativity! this winter keep up warm your head with cool color headwear and stay comfortable!

  3. I dip dyed my hair with black cherry look aid 8 months ago, still some left.


Thanks so much for taking a minute to let us know what you think! We read and appreciate all of your comments!
