DIY: Spike and Chain Headband

Ever since I cut my hair I'm addicted to these beauties. It's easy, inexpensive and a different look for every occasion.  So I thought about doing a DIY to share with you. 

You will need
Needle & thread
Ribbons/ Trims/ Chains/ Studs/ Spikes

First up the measurements. Measure your ribbon or chain around your head, line it up and leave a gap of approximately 10 cm open for your elastic. 

If you want to embellish your ribbon now is the time. I'm going for a spikey headband. The spikes are 5 cm apart. Make sure you leave at least 6 cm at the ends of your ribbon.

Now for the elastics. Cut the elastic in 16 cm strands and knot it. To cover the knot you need a 2 cm piece of ribbon and hand sew it over the knot. You can also glue it.

Last part. Take your ribbon and hand sew the ends to your elastic.

Et Voila You're done


Look around for some old necklaces, ribbons and stones and create a new accessory
