Casey and I have been wanting to make this headband for so long. It's so easy- it's kind of ridiculous that we waited this long! Casey got all of this free "ribbon", as we are calling it, and this was the perfect way to use it. Technically this stuff isn't ribbon but actual ribbon would work just as well. This stuff is a little more fabricy- anyone know what it is called? Anyways, this picture seems pretty self explanatory but let me put the tutorial in words for all of you literal people out there.

You will need:
Ribbon (17 inches long is what I used- I sort of have a big head)
A stretched out hair tie (You could use elastic if you wanted to be fancier)
Needle and Thread
& Scissors

Step 1. Fold the end of the ribbon over and sew the edge down, leaving a small opening or "loop".
Step 2. Cut your hair tie.
Step 3. Loop the hair tie through the ribbon hole and tie a knot in the hair tie. Do this on both ends.
FINISHED! Wear your fancy new headband proudly!


  1. Couldn't you just leave the hairtie intact and sew the loops around it? That would make more sense to me.

    1. I was thinking the same thing!

    2. I don't know about you but I like a headband to be loose enough that it doesn't start giving me a headache. When you have double the resistance, that is what starts happening. However, if you would like to do this tutorial on your blog without cutting the hair tie... more power to you! This is how we make ours. :)

  2. Love this! I like the cut hair tie... it looks more polished to me! Thanks for the tutorial!

  3. This is cute. Love the fabric you used!

  4. That is so cute and simple! Doing it. Thanks ladies!

  5. So easy and looks great! Def have to try this.
