Our headband had a flower that was starting to look a little tired and worn so we made it new again! This braided ribbon could embellish many things— a hair clip would be cute too! These headbands would make great handmade gifts for little girls to make each other!
Woven Ribbon Headband
Gather a headband and about 4 1/2 yards of ribbon. You can use any with — I chose 1/4 inch. The braiding will be two toned if the ribbon is different on the front and back, another nice look!
Begin by finding the middle of the ribbon. In the middle of the ribbon make a loop crossing the left side over the right. (which way you start doesn’t matter — I am left handed)
Now bring the bottom ribbon up and make a loop and send it through the beginning loop that you just made by crossing the ribbon.
Pull the right side snug.
Now repeat for the other side, picking up the right side, making a loop and sending it up through the loop just made on the other side.
Pull the left side snug. Make a loop with the left side sending it through the loop made on the other side.
Pull right side snug.
Continue braiding until you have a piece long enough to cover the headband. Clip the end.Bring the other side over and then trim. Fold ends under and hot glue.
