Flax & twine: Day 3: Sparkle Headbands - a diy headband tutorial
Theses headbands I want to keep for myself. Really, I can’t decide which I like better the beads or the rhinestones. I know Allie won’t want to take them off. Who doesn’t love the idea of diamonds glittering in your hair? The technique for the floss wrapping I used in the wands in my costume course on Craftsy. But, I just adore the added bling. Really you can do this technique with most trimmed beads. I fell in love with the idea of the rhinestones after seeing Green Eyed Monster’s Rhinstone bangles - love these. Material: Plastic headband DMC Pearl Cotton Embroidery Thread Approx. 18″ of beaded trim with attachments in between each stone or bead (rhinestones, crystal beads, etc) Craft glue or hot glue gun Time: 1 hour Attach beginning of floss to inside of headband with craft glue or hot glue gun. Wrap floss around headband beginning at one end. You can wrap a number of times (5-7) quickly and then push strands together snugly, careful not to overlap the strands. Let it dry. Finis!
