{Tutorial} Easy Peasy Headband

I love projects that you can whip up in less than ten minutes (unless you are like me and have to get out your sewing machine and supplies every time you want to craft :) ).

Sorry for the flat hair- one of those never-got-out-of-my-workout-clothes days

Ribbon of your choice
Thick hair tie

1.  Measure head and cut ribbon.  I had a 22 inch head and cut my ribbon to 19 inches since the ribbon that I had was a little stretchy- or else I would probably cut it to 21 inches.
2.  Loop one end around your hair tie and sew it together and make sure you backstitch all the was across as well.
3.  Do the same thing to the other side making a complete circle, but make sure to test it around your head with your hands to see if it will fit.
See! Easy Peasy!!!  Once you know the technique you can do fun things like the headband I made for Easter with ribbons and stuff you have around the house.
I just went up to step 2, braided the three ribbons and then continued with step 3.  I made a bow and then used my handy dandy glue gun to adhere it.
As always, I would love to see if you make one and what other fun ideas you make for your headband!


  1. I love that black ribbon that you used. The headband that I won from Agape Love's giveaway last month used this technique. When it arrived and I saw it, I thought it was so clever. Lots of love friend. i am counting down the days until I see you. If it is just me and Emmett can we sleep over?

  2. How cute and simple! Love it and can't wait to try a few!

  3. You had me until I saw the picture of the sewing machinge. That's when it stops becoming easy for me. LOL. Love the idea though.
