I found wire headbands in the jewelry making section of Hobby Lobby. They had black and silver. Bonus! These headbands are actually fairly comfortable and won't make your head feel like the headband is trying to squeeze your brains out of your ears after wearing them for a couple of hours.
To make the headbands you'll need:
- fabric scraps (for the red and white headband I used a jersey knit and for the orange and turquoise headband I used a calico)
- hot glue gun
- beads or buttons and needle and thread (optional)
First, cut your fabric into strips. I make mine about 1 1/2 inches wide. The strips don't have to be cut straight - you won't be able to tell once you've made them into a flower. Make the strips long (like length of the fabric long). Once you're happy with the size of the flower, you can cut the excess off.Fold the strip in half and make a knot at one end.
