This really cute Express Headband caught my eye the other day while shopping. One glance at the price tag...$19.50, and I kept walking. But as things do, I kept thinking about how cute it was and what outfits I would wear it with. So I looked at another pic online and got to work.
I picked up a 5-pack of skinny plastic headbands in brown and black at the Dollar Tree and some black ribbon at Walmart for I think $1.47 each roll. So for less than 5 bucks I was determined to make a similar headband.
I used a sheer and satin ribbon for a little more texture. I lined them up on top of each other and gather the pieces by hand til I had the right length and gather-age. With the ruffle done, I took the satin ribbon and made a loose rosette to put at one end.
Once those were done I just hot glued the ruffle and rosette to the band...and DONE! I have a new headband I plan on wearing to church this week!
