Headbands are a great way to add a nice girly touch to any look. If you’re looking for a quick hair fix and want your hair out of your face, you can simply wear a nice little headband and you’ll be good to go. The great thing about headbands is that you can wear them regardless of whether you have short hair or long hair and they look good on any face shape as well. There are a lot of designs and styles for headbands out there but they can burn a hole in your pocket if you buy all of your headbands readymade. To save on cash, you can always make your own headbands. They’re super easy to make and requires very little time and effort plus they’re fully customizable which means you can make them according to your own liking. Here are a few cute ideas for easy DIY headbands:
Braided fabric headband – this DIY headband is a great thing to make if you have lots of scrap fabric from your other DIY projects. Take the most colorful ones if you want something that can brighten a plain outfit or plain solid colors if you want something simple and classy. You can do any kind of braid you want with your fabric and when you’re done, you can attach it to a fabric or glue it on to a plain plastic headband.
Animal headband – who says kids get all the fun with wearing animal ears headbands? Wear these headbands even if it isn’t Halloween if you want to give your outfit a fun and quirky twist. You can make these with any kind of headband – plastic, wire or garter as long as you can attach the ears in such a way that they can hold their weight and stand on their own.
Embellished headband – got a plain headband that looks too boring for your taste? Why not embellish it? You can use any embellishment that you like in making this DIY headband, whether it’s rhinestones, fabric rosettes, lace, appliqués, crystals, beads or whatever else takes your fancy. You can also make it as loud and bold as you like or as simple and subtle, it all depends on what you plan on wearing it with.
Fascinator headband – fascinator headbands are a big statement trend and one piece from the mall can cost you as much as 3 to 5 simple headbands. If you don’t like spending too much, you can always make your own fascinator. All you will need is a plain headband, some tulle, feathers, probably a few fake flowers and other adornments and of course fabric glue. Lay out your design and glue your way to the most fascinating fascinator!
Ruffled headband – this is another great idea if you have lots of scrap fabric, especially the light ones like chiffon, silk or lace. It requires basic sewing skills so you can still do it even if you’re not a master seamstress. Like most DIY headbands, the choice is yours on whether you want this on a plastic headband or a fabric (garterized) one.
