Spring fever is in full effect. Follow your heart with a headband as you step into the season with some extra sparkle and shine. Mix luminous and rich materials with earthy textures for a match made in heaven. Get inspired by crazy cool crystals from SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS and springtime hues for a haute headband thats to DIY for!To create: Measure and cut SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS CUPCHAIN TRIM to fit the top of the headband. Chain should cover all but the bottom inch of the headband. Cut 4 feet of colored raffia and fold in half. Secure chain to the headband by knotting raffia onto the end of the cupchain trim. Begin wrapping from the bottom and continue all the way around securing chain. Use the cross-over method going over and under each crystal you wrap. Knot off once you reach the end and snip off any remaining raffia.P.S.- You’re invited to dive into DIY this week with Erica Domesek where she will be at Saks Fifth Avenue in Atlanta, New York City & Palm Beach Gardens.
