Got a few elastics, some excess ribbon or trim, and 5 minutes? Then you’ll definitely want to up your style game with this super simple hack: the DIY headband!

 – assorted trim + ribbon

– needle and thread

thick hair elastics

We used an assortment of trim we had in our craft closet. Any trim or ribbon will do the trick!

1. Cut all of your trim to ___ inches long and cut your elastic in half.

2. Wrap one end of the trim around one elastic end and use a needle and thread to stitch the two together.

3. Repeat on the other end.

4. Cut off excess thread, and you’re done!

We did the same thing with 9 other pieces of trim. So much color!!

So fun! We couldn’t resist throwing a zipper into the mix ;)
