Simple Head Band Tutorials

 After seeing loads of boho floral and feather headbands at Fieldview and after seeing them around shops, online etc etc- I thought i'd have a go at making my own headband out of bits and bobs i've been collecting!

Leaf Headband

Ok so this headband wont last forever but it's got an earthy/boho feel and it's so simple to make!

Old Headband, Ribbon and Leaves collected

Glue the ribbon to the headband and wrap around at the ends, then begin gluing the leaves around the headband  all facing the same way and making sure all the stalks are covered by the next leaf.

Feather Headband

A simple feather headband using an old alice band!

Feathers in 2 colours, an old alice band and pegs/clips to hold the feathers in place. 

Begin gluing the feathers onto the alice band (in the same direction - i started with one colour first) and clipping them into place whilst the glue dries - leave a small space in between in each one. 

Then begin gluing the second colour feathers in between the first colour ones, then go around and trim the ends so they don't show!

Button Headband

Ribbon, Buttons, Thread and Needle and any other embellishments you might have!

I marked off at the ends where i wanted the buttons to be and began to sew them, by hand, onto the ribbon.

I then did the same with the rest!

I then cut the ribbon to the length i wanted- simple!

The following images have inspired me!
