DIY | Rigid Ribbon Headband
with video instructions
Are you like me and have problems with ribbon headbands sliding off your alien shaped head? Okay, maybe your head isn’t shaped like an alien’s, but still, you might benefit from a rigid headband, right? Well, I’ve been experimenting with creating some headband stlyes, and thought I would share an idea with you! Imagine a ribbon style headband, with the security of a rigid shape, and the styling capabilities of a hair comb. Bam! I gotcha girl. Check out the supply list below to get started on making your own!
I found all of these supplies for a great price at a local craft shop. The velcro you use should be at least the width of the ribbon you are using, and the headband form should also be a similar width. Grab some glue (hot glue works great for this project, actually!), scissors, and get going! Watch the video below to see how I made my headbands. (Oh, and by the way, isn’t Harriot the Head Mannequin looking lovely in her new yellow headband?!)
Do you have any favorite ways to wear headbands? If so, I’d love to know! I must admit, I’m rather out of headband practice since I last great out my bangs in 6th grade. Teach me your hairstyling ways! Oh, and if you try out this DIY, I’d love to see how it worked out for you!
