Rainbow Ribbon Headband Tutorial

Making this charming rainbow ribbon headband is seriously easy and fast.

Materials for Rainbow Ribbon Headband:

  • headband
  • ribbon in rainbow colors
  • crystal bead or rhinestone for the center of the ribbon flower
  • felt

Cut ribbon into approximately 2" long segments.  Cut four of each color of the rainbow.  Use a hot glue gun to glue each piece of ribbon in half to make loops.

Cut felt into a 3" diameter circle, and glue a ring of rainbow ribbon tags around the perimeter of the circle.  Glue a second ring of ribbon tabs inside the first ring, and glue a crystal in the center.  

Glue the ribbon flower to a headband (a fabric-covered headband works best when using a glue gun)

Just try to be sad while wearing a rainbow on your head, I dare you.
