DIY Sparkle Headband

December 20, 2012


It all started with some beautiful trim and ended up as a beautiful headband for a 20’s-style ensemble for my best friend’s 30th birthday party. I thought I’d share the three quick and easy steps it takes to make your own headband.

  • Trim 16″ – 20″
  • Elastic 3″ – 5″
  • Two Safety Pins
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Scissors


Step 1:
Wrap the trim around your head to find out how long you need your trim to be but leave about 3″ – 5″ off for your elastic. I found out my head is 21.5″ for where my headband would sit so I cut my trim to 18″ and the elastic to 4.5″ inches. Before sewing I suggest connecting the elastic to the trim with a safety pins. Try on your headband-to-be to make sure you like how it fits. Shouldn’t be too snug or too loose. Once you have it right, move onto step 2.


Step 2:
Sew on the elastic to the trim with your needle and thread.


Step 3:
Sew on the other side.

I’m so happy with how my headband turned out. It was perfect for the speakeasy party but I can’t wait to throw it on with a pair of jeans and a sweater to make the everyday a little bit brighter.



Cheers to champagne, chocolate cupcakes, sparkle and my best friend, Angela.
