How-To: Recycled Ruffled Headband

Head band

If you pick up any fashion magazine or browse the racks of your favorite store, you will notice that ruffles are really “in” right now. But if you are like me and like the look but are low on funds I have a low budget solution…a ruffled headband.

To make this headband you can use any lightweight material that you have in your stash. I used an old chiffon skirt. But how about some organic cotton or vintage finds?

To make this headband, you will need the following tools and materials:

  • Approximately a quarter yard of lightweight material  (chiffon, organza, cotton, etc)
  • Scissors
  • Sewing needle and thread in appropriate color
  • Wide Headband
  • Hot glue gun
  • Straight pins
  • Ruler
  • Piece of paper
  • Pencil/pen
  • Buttons Optional

About the Author

I’m a lifelong crafter with many different interests. My latest obsession is making accessories for women's hair and making flowers from a variety of recycled and repurposed materials. If it is shiny, feathery or sparkly I love it! I also carry around a pocket camera to take pictures of items, scenery, signs, or anything else that I find inspiring. I enjoy creating new things and sharing how to make my creations with others on my blog (http://designbynight.blogspot.com/).
