Fun and Easy DIY Headband for Your Unique Style


Fun and Easy DIY Headband for Your Unique Style (1)

Have some fun with your girlfriends and create headbands to show off your individual or group style. The best part of this DIY is it really is just the framework to put the headband together.  Everything else is up to you.  Choose different flowers or chains to make it yours.

What you will need

Flowers
Chain
Elastic band
Scissors
Hot glue gun
Pair of needle nose pliers (2 pair works best)

Directions

1. Cut the flowers from the stem.  Use as many different flowers as you would like.  There is no limit to how creative you can be.

2. Measure and cut the elastic band to fit.  The length of the elastic band should be the length from one ear around to the other like below plus 2 inches to allow for the chain to be attached.  You could also have the elastic band wrap all the way around if you do not want a chain. In that case only include the length you would overlap to nice fitting headband.

3. Take the measured elastic band, fold about one 1 from the end and use the glue gun to secure the end.  Make sure the loop you created can fit the chain you will be using. Repeat with the other side.

4. Measure the chain from one ear to the next, but this time go around the back of your head.  Add a couple inches to allow for the length needed to attach the elastic band  to the chain.

5. Thread the chain through the one of the loops you created in the elastic band.

6. Use the pliers to twist open the end link and connect it to the chain to create a loop around the elastic band. When making the loop with the chain, make sure you tightly close the link so it wont come apart.

7. Now come the fun part!  Place the elastic band flat.  Start from one end and place a small dot of glue onto the band, then place the flower on top.  Make sure to glue the flowers close together because the elastic band will stretch. Repeat gluing on flowers until you have your own unique beautiful headband.

8. To finish we need to repeat step 6 and connect the other side of the chain to the elastic band. Use the pliers to twist open the end link and connect it to the chain to create a loop around the elastic band. When making the loop with the chain, make sure you tightly close the link so it wont come apart.
