Some people collect stamps, or coins, or ceramic pigs… I’m starting to think I collect headbands. Many months ago I bought some elastic and I just keep making more headbands but they’re so useful! As a mom I don’t always have time to tame my mane so I use a headband to control and distract attention away from the bad hair.
Here’s my latest:
- 1/2 inch elastic to make headband (or you can cheat and start with a pre-made one)
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
Step 1: Make a headband from elastic. I cut a piece of elastic to 21 inches and then sewed over the two overlapped ends to form a loop. Or you can begin with a ready-made headband if you don’t want to have to sew. The rest of this tutorial is no-sew.
Step 2: Cut three pieces of felt. The rectangles should measure 1 X3 inches, 1 X 6 inches, and 1 X 8 inches.
Step 4: Glue the smaller loop on top of the larger one. Then glue them onto the elastic headband, over the part where you sewed it.Step 5: Take the remaining piece of felt (the 3 inch one) and lay it across the front of the two loops. Fold the ends over to the back and glue them into place.
Let me know in the comments if you make one. I’d love to hear all about it!
