Today I created a headband for my daughter using Duck Tape, Smooch Spritz, and The Crafter's Workshop Mini Chevrons Template.

I made the flower out of Duck Tape (tutorial coming soon) and added it to the headband with the bling flower and a couple rhinestones. I then laid the Mini Chevrons Template on the leaves and sprayed them very lightly with Smooch Spritz in Grape Burst. The ink spreads very quickly on fabric so I very lightly spritzed — the ink then spread out along the fibers in the leaves. I then glued the leaves to the back of the flowers on the headband.

It was that easy! My daughter just loved this fun and funky headband, great for Halloween!
