DIY Headbands for Simple Girls Fashion
After selling a kidney to pay for back-to-school clothes for your kids, you need to take a break. Making these simple and fun headbands is a great way to rest after a full day of shopping, and the bonus is matching headbands to coordinate with back-to-school outfits. Both the headband tutorials I'm sharing with you today are super simple to make.
Two DIY Headbands for Girl's Fashion
You can use whatever colors you like - school colors to match with school uniforms, your daughter's favorite colors, or the colors of the ribbon you have on-hand.
Ballet Headband DIY
We'll start by making the ballet headband. The way the ribbons are laced on this headband look just like a ballet slipper, don't you think? The trick to getting such a perfect looking headband is the headband itself. It has a fringed edge, perfect for lacing the ribbon.
Supplies for a Ballet Girls Headband
- Headband with an open weave
- 1/8" ribbon in your chosen color
Start by tucking the end of the ribbon into a hole at the bottom. Tuck up, to hold in place.
Start wrapping at an angle, all the way around the top of the headband.
When you get to the end, wrap and continue back across.
When you get back to the beginning, cut the excess ribbon, then tuck it into the back of the headband. and use a little hot glue to secure.
Wait until the glue has cooled, then your ribbon wrapped headband is complete!
How to Make a Bow Headband
You can make a variety of headbands to match your different outfits.
- Ribbon (3/4" wide or larger for loops, 1/4" or larger for center)
- Hot glue
To Assemble Your Bow Headband:
Start by making the bow. Fold the wider ribbon into 4 loops as shown.
Cut a 10" piece of the other ribbon, then tie in the center.
You can play around with the placement of the bow, but nothing is set is stone at this point.
Add a dab of glue where you want the bow, then press the bow down.
Wrap the ends of the center ribbon around the headband, one on each side. Glue down.
Use glue in the center of the bow to adjust the bow, and secure the pieces in place.
Fold the ends in half, then cut at an angle to make the pretty ends.
That's it! Your ribbon bow headband is complete!
What colors will you use for your headbands?
