Materials for making a Rainbow Ribbon DIY Headband

Materials for Rainbow Ribbon DIY Headband:

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

Satin ribbon in rainbow colors cut into small pieces for the rainbow ribbon flower on the DIY headband.

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)
