Make It! 2 Gorgeous DIY Headbands In Less than 10 Minutes

Hair accessorizing is trending in a big way right now, from Bohemian-inspired headbands and flower crowns to  turban scarves—there are literally hundreds to choose from!  Though we love them all, headbands are especially hot right now. They add a little oomph to your outfit when your hair is anything but fabulous. And the icing on the cake—they couldn’t be easier to make! Seriously, I think my 3-year-old nephew could make these darling headbands with his eyes closed! (Okay, might be exaggerating a little here.)

Click through the photos below to see how to make your own DIY headbands with some cute specialty ribbon and a little elastic!

  • Gather Your Supplies! 2 of 10

    Specialty Ribbon (Mine was from Joann Fabric), cut to the diameter of your head minus 3 inches

    2.5 inch long piece of elastic (1/4" wide)

    Needle and thread

  • Sew the Ends 3 of 10

    Sew the elastic to each end of the ribbon, making sure nothing is twisted! Don't let the hand sewing turn you off, it takes about 2 minutes total!

  • That Was Easy! 4 of 10

    Your finished product should look something like this. That was easy and fun!

  • Wear It! 5 of 10

    I love the soft feminine look of wearing this one lower down across the forehead. The look can be for anything from bridal chic to girly casual. 

  • Boho Headband Supplies 6 of 10

    Crochet lace ribbon (Mine was from Joann Fabric), cut to the diameter of your head minus 3 inches

    2.5 inch long piece of elastic (1/4" wide)

    Needle and thread

  • Folded Edges 7 of 10

    Fold the edges of the ribbon into the middle to match the width of the elastic.

  • Sew, Sew, Sew 8 of 10

    Sew the elastic to each end of the folded ribbon, again making sure nothing is twisted. 10 stitches on each side will do the trick!

  • Another One Down! 9 of 10

    Here's your finished product. Tug on the ends where the elastic is to make sure it is strongly in place and throw your new Boho headband on! 

  • Time to Wear Your Creation! 10 of 10

    You can style this a few different ways: on top of your head like a traditional headband or across the top of your forehead for a more bohemian/hippy chic look.
