I bought a headband ages ago. It was really pretty. Chunky. Sadly my ever-changing hair colour always clashed with it so the headband never actually got worn. I was contemplating putting it in the bin or to a charity shop when I decided to give it a bit of a revival using an old dress and my love for polkadots.
- Some old material
- Tacky glue
- An old headband
- 5 minutes (give or take)
Step 1: Cut your chosen material into a wide, long strip about 3/4 times the object you’re covering. It doesn’t have to be neat or equal widths the entire way along- mine wasn’t.
Step 2: Fold in the corners of the material at each end and glue. This makes it tidier and easier in the long run.
Step 3: Blob a bit of glue onto the inside end of your headband and attach one end of your strip of material.
Step 4: Tightly wind the material around the headband, blobbing a bit of glue on the inside as you go to hold in place.
Step 5: Once you reach the other end, blob another bit of glue and smoosh the material down.
Step 6: I had an extra bit left by the time I got to the end of the band so I just started winding round the other way and glued the end on the inside. Done.
