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