DIY BRAIDED HEADBAND

May 21, 2013

Since festival season is in full swing, I thought it would be the perfect time to make this headband. I think headbands are a great accessory to wear to festivals and look really cute with high waisted shorts and a crop top. It's really easy to make, so I hope you enjoy!


What you will need:

Two different types of thin ribbon// fabric scissors// tape measure// something heavy to put the strings under


First you need to start by measuring your head, leaving a little extra space. You can make it as long as you want.


Next you need to cut off 3 pieces of ribbon at your measurements with your fabric scissors.


Then just the three pieces together at the end and place them under your heavy object.


Now it's time to start braiding! Try to put the strings over exactly the same, so the plaid looks nice and even. If you don't, it will look very messy.


When you get to the end of the braid, just tie a knot and cut off the pieces at the end.


Now just tie it around your head and your ready to go!

What do you think of this DIY?
