4th of July Ribbon and Antenna Headband

4th of July Ribbon and Antenna Headband - The Ribbon Retreat Blog
Happy ALMOST 4th of July! I can’t believe it is really right around the corner. It is coming super fast and so are the fireworks, BBQs, parades and all other fun and festive celebrations you can think of! And, with thinking about all of the super fun celebrations that come with this patriotic holiday I wanted to create an accessory that is just as fun as all of the parties and firework goodness you will be enjoying in just a few days!

This fun and crazy project was a blast to make, and if I don’t say so myself…pretty DANG adorable too! I can just picture my sweet little girlee with this super fun Ribbon and Antenna Headband wobbling around all day long! I think all the nieces might just have to have one too! You will be shocked at how easy this is to make and how much fun it is watching it all come together!

Here’s all you need to create this adorable headband…

Let’s Get Started…

Take the notebook spiral from an old, used up notebook. Since school just got out, we had a whole bunch laying around our house.

CAREFULLY, cut the spiral in half.

To wrap my headband in ribbon, I used one of our incredible YouTube video tutorials. This particular video shows you a few different ways of wrapping ribbon around your headband. I used the method using Moonstitch ribbon because I love the added dimension and personality the white trim gives to the headband. You can view the video below.

Here are a few pictures to show you my ribbon wrapping process.

While you are wrapping the headband, be thinking of where you want to place your antennas. I placed mine at about 11:00 and 1:00 (as if you were looking at a clock). Place a little dab of hot glue on the headband and place your spiral onto the hot glue. Quickly add a little more hot glue and start wrapping your ribbon around your spiral. Pull your ribbon tight so your spiral is nice and secure to your headband.

Continue wrapping your ribbon around the remainder of the headband adding a couple of dabs of hot glue as you go.

Sweet…all done wrapping your headband!

Next we are going to create our Korker Bows to place on top of our antennas. We have multiple written tutorials and even a YouTube video to teach you how to create these fun and fluffy bows. You can find the written tutorials HERE and HERE and the video tutorials HERE and HERE.

Here are a couple pictures of my process as well.

Take your felt circles and cut out 4 squares.

Place some hot glue to the very center of your Korker Bow and add one of the small squares.

Put some hot glue onto another square and place it on the end of one of the antennas. With a little more hot glue placed on the Korker Bow, sandwich the end of the spiral in between the two squares and hold to make sure the Korker Bow is secure. Repeat on the other antenna.
