Happy DIY day friends!

I decided I wanted to make some new wide headbands. I happen to have some vintage scarves that I often forget to wear so I thought I would use them for my project. You can get vintage scarves at thrift stores for a couple bucks if you don’t have any on hand. I purchased my headband bases at Ross Dress For Less, because I was there and they had them for about $1.50 each. I also have picked them up at the Dollar Store too. These ones are plastic, but you can get fabric ones too.

Items you need: Glue gun with glue, scissors, felt, scarves, headband base, and a pen

I cut the scarf into a strip to fit around the headband. You can trim any extra as you go.

I also cut a piece of felt to fit on the inside of the headband. I used matching colors too.

I used my hot glue gun to adhere the scarf to the headband. I went in small sections and glued slowly to be accurate. Gluing one side down first then the other. I folded it over on the inside and glued that too. Don’t over glue! you don’t want to see the glue all over the band or through the scarf. Use more glue on the inside where no one will see.

I trimmed up the ends and folded them up and glued them down.

You are ready to glue the felt to the inside to give it a finished look.

You should have plenty of fabric from one scarf to make gifts for your friends. I also have used denim, lace and fabric scraps to make headbands. You can also glue on some rhinestones for added pizzazz.

I hope this inspires you to make something new.

Live. Love. Remember.
