Once the cutting and sewing was over, I knew this piece needed some sparkle. I have been trying to re-purpose a pair of clip-on earrings that have been lying dormant in my jewelry box for years, and this was the perfect opportunity. Once I sewed one of those little suckers on the front of the turband, the project felt complete.
For its public debut, I styled my DIY gem as part of a bohemian look. I can think of so many outfits that will benefit from the addition of this turband, though, and I can't wait to play around some more!

I had such a blast making my new headdress and seeing it come to life when paired with an ensemble. I encourage all of you to dust off those old pieces in your closet that never see the light of day and find out what else you can make with them!
*Editorial note: A turband is a turban-headband hybrid. Chris asked me last night if I had intended to write "turband" instead of "turban." Just wanted to clarify in case anyone else out there was wondering the same thing.
