It’s another crafty day in the ScarvesDotNet office! I had some pieces of scarf leftover from our DIY scarf flats project, so I decided to make a structured headband out of them. I love the look of the flowy head scarves that trail down your shoulder, but I can never get them to stay on properly. Sticking a plastic headband inside gives some support, and I know it’s not going anywhere.
Let’s start crafting!
Step 1: Gather your supplies
- glue gun
- scarf scraps
Cut a strip of scarf that’s wide enough to cover your headband, and long enough to be able to drape over your shoulder (if that’s the look you’re going for).
Step 2: Get to gluing!
Start by gluing the scarf to one side of the headband. Apply the glue to the underside of the headband, so you can’t see the edges when you’re wearing it. Repeat the process on the other side. The scarf should look like it’s wrapped around the headband, with no edges showing.
Step 3: Clean up extra bits
Snip away the edges left over after you’ve secured the scarf to the headband. You may need to singe the edges of the scarf to make sure they don’t fray. I had to that with this scarf.
Step 4: Wear proudly!
Such an easy DIY project! And now I have a headband that matches my shoes. :)
