Pleated Headband

Today I am going to show you how to make a fun and beautiful Pleated Headband. This is the same headband I made for last Fridays blog swap if you missed it.



I love a pleated beautiful headband.
Super easy to make plus it looks really great
Heres how to do it:
You will need a hot glue gun, a headband, ribbon (I used satin 5/8). I would use ribbon that is wider than your headband for a cleaner look

Line the inside of your headband with ribbon

Now start pleating the ribbon. Do it by hot gluing it down as you go.


Then when you get to the end of the headband cut the ribbon about an inch. Fold it over hot glue to the inside of the headband.
Look how awesome the headband looks. It looks great by itself.
Or even better with a pretty flower
