Ribbon Woven Headband Tutorial

Amongst the long list of my favorite things about Christmas is the pure elegance of silver and gold accent colors, crystal dishes and Christmas tree ornaments and all of the glitter sprinkled around home decor, presents, and holiday attire! I love the beauty of this season in things you can see but also all of the things that you can’t and today, Cherie is sharing a lovely and elegant Woven Headband created from gorgeous holiday inspired ribbon that you can definitely see and definitely won’t want to miss! Enjoy!

Headbands are the cutest and easiest way to keep your little ones hair out of her eyes.  I wouldn’t have made it through my daughters awkward short hair (after she cut her own hair) without them!  They are so cute on all hair lengths and it’s fun to have a collection to match their wardrobe! Who’s with me?

Today I’m going to show you how to make this woven headband.
Supplies Needed:

  • 4 Pieces of 3/8″ Ribbon cut to 40″ and sealed
  • Glue Gun
  • 1″ Headband
  • Lighter
  • Alligator Clip

You can use any variation of colors from one to four.  I used 3 colors and glued the silvers together so they would be the center color.  I chose red and green to be the outer triangles.
Glue your ribbons together as shown in the picture above.

Then glue the ribbons together to form an “X”.  If you just use two colors you can glue two 80″ ribbons together in an “X”.

Glue the ribbons to the inside of the headband.

Take the top right ribbon and bring it across the front of the headband.

Now take the top left ribbon and bring it across.

Take the ribbon that you just brought across and take it around the back.

Take the remaining ribbon across the front of the headband so that all four ribbons are on one side.

Lift the top ribbon that is in the front so that it’s out of the way for a second.

Bring the top back ribbon across the front.

Now take the ribbon that was out of the way and bring it through the other ribbons around to the other side.  Now you should have two ribbons on each side again and you are ready to start over.

IMG_3093.jpg1
When you get to this point, it helps to clip the ribbons in place with an alligator clip.

IMG_3096.jpg1
Just move the alligator clip as you go.
When you get to the end of the headband glue ribbon in place as you weave then cut the ends and seal them with a lighter.

It looks cute as is but you can also clip a bow to it if you want.  It’s nice to have options.
