Halloween Teaser

Starting October 4th Break + Remake will do a clever craft project each week. What is a clever craft project? I'm glad you asked. All these projects will be with upcycled and recycled materials. The paints I use will all be made in the USA (less shipping cost and waste, solid environmental laws). 

Let's start a conversation about where our craft supplies come from and how we as crafters can help create a culture of sustainability, make do and mend, all while having a great time. Creativity is weird in that the more restrictions we put on ourselves, the more cool ideas we come up with. 

Let's use what's around!

Upcycled Fabric Headband


Today's tutorial is building on one of the previous tuts. Check it out here!

The materials list is pretty straight forward

Hoop Art- pick the piece you want to cut up and make into a headband


Felt- I got my felt from the lovely Benzie Design

Headband- you can get a blank anywhere, or re-use one that you already have


Thread to match your project

Hot Glue gun- pew pew!

*Sewing Machine- I used one for this project but you don't have to, this will totally work hand stitched as well.

Thanks for watching!

If you make something from the Break + Remake tutorials or if you are a recycle/upcycle crafter come show me your stuff on the Facebook Group page!

Halloween Craftstravaganza is coming up. I'll be doing one tutorial every week for you during October. So awesome it's SPOooOKY!!!

Craft with what's around!
