How-To: Recycled Ruffled Headband
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.
Recycled Ruffled Headband
Approximately a quarter yard of lightweight material (chiffon, organza, cotton, etc)
Sewing needle and thread in appropriate color
Hot glue gun
Piece of paper
1. Take the piece of paper and make a circle with a 2.5” diameter. Cut out this circle to use as a pattern and cut out 30 circles using the fabric of your choice.
4. Tie off the open end and trim excess string. You should now have a good sized ruffle.
5. Hot glue the ruffle piece to the headband. I prefer mine off centered so I started with one edge at the center top and glued the remaining down the side but you can put the ruffle anywhere on the headband depending on taste.
6. For additional glam, hot glue buttons to the uncovered sides of the headband. This step is optional.
Enjoy your finished headband!
We’d love to see your take on this project. Please share your photos in the comments.
