I've been going into the hair accessory section of the store lately looking for something new and fun and I fell in love with a really sparkly bow headband. I did not however feel it was worth the $7 when I knew that I could make it myself (sometimes I'm cheap). I knew glitter ribbon would be 1. hard to find in a variety of colors and 2. expensive! so I decided to make that myself too! Here's what I ended up with.
Ribbon (I used 1.5 inch satin ribbon)
Clear fishing line string
Hot glue gun
Scrap of felt
GLITTER! I prefer Martha Stewart brand, it sparkles like no other I've used.
To make my bows lay nice and flat on the band I used a bit of glue to tack the ribbon folded into a bow like position.
Hot glue the bow to your headband. Then reinforce the bond with a couple strips of matching felt.
