Frugal Tip: Use What You've Got - Headbands & Bows!


My daughter loves headbands and bows. But if I bought a headband or bow to match every outfit, that could get a little out of control!  So, I look through the ones that she has, and mix and match according to what color she needs for the day. 



As you can see by the photo, we started with 2 headbands and a bow (the clip on kind). I put the green one on my daughter first. After that was all set, we added the pink one on top and centered it in the middle of the green headband. Then, I clipped the bow underneath the whole thing (this also keeps the headband in place all day!). By mixing and matching, we made a cute new headband - and it didn't cost us a penny. I didn't glue anything, so it all comes apart and the pieces can be mixed up again and again. Try it - you'll be surprised at the combinations you can come up with!

That is a great idea! I had never thought of mixing and matching.
