DIY Blue Satin Safety Pin Bow

The Perfect Mix of Sweet and Punk
I'm not so sure why it looks so bright blue in the picture, technically its more of a navy...So this was really easy for me. Basically, I had this huge loop with a rubber band connecting that had come off the present wrapping from a robe I got for Christmas. But it was this gorgeous blue, and was perfect material for headband and I couldn't bear to let it go. So finally, the inspiration struck me as I was setting up my new vanity, that I could fold it into a sort of bow and secure it with safety pins! At first I had the intention of covering up the single safety pin I had, but I loved the sweet-but-edgy look so much that I just decided to put a bunch more!
Basically, I just sized it to my head, folded down the excess into my bow, and strategically placed my safety pins in a strategically messy way! ;)

Although my hair looks terrible in the picture...I had it all curled up nice, and by the time I had the chance to snap and quick shot, it had all fallen flat :(
