Today's TV Tuesday blog post written by Hosanna, Lead Crafter at Television:
One thing I love about living in NYC is watching how trends start and build by looking at people on the subway. Back in the fall I started to notice girls wearing simple feather headbands. "Easy craft, anyone can do it!" I thought to myself – and maybe even a nice craft to do on the show.
As the months passed, the headbands on the subway girls started to get more elaborate and abundant, and I knew it was time to pitch the craft as a segment. I made a feather headband for myself to wear around the studio and immediately got compliments, so I made a few more for others to wear. As they multiplied across our studio like they did on the subway, it became clear to our producers that this would make a great, popular craft segment.
While we’ve been waiting to find the perfect place in the show schedule for the segment, I have had a lot of women at the studio ask about how to make them. Which lead to me hosting a little after-work headband party. Everyone brought and shared her own headbands, feathers, and findings, and I provided the glue, advice, and snacks.
The supplies to create your own headband are easy to find and actually rather inexpensive (about $10, compared to the $40-$200 finished products I saw on the subway), and I love that everyone was able to make a band that was unique to their style.
