Asymmetrical Headband DIY - I Love It!

Saturday, February 28, 2015

Hellooo, Friends! Today I bring you another DIY video tutorial – this really cute Asymmetrical Headband! This one is a little longer video than I’ve recently been trying to keep my videos down to, but it just needs a bit more explanation for certain steps, it does not mean that this is hard. It really isn’t.  And it only takes about an hour to make this headband.

So, I’m going to go over the supplies list but I just wanted to note that if you look around at places like Walmart or the Dollar Stores you might be able to find some of the items I purchased at Michaels for a little cheaper. I always hope you guys can spend as little as possible on the projects I bring you. I think I spent about $23 on the stuff I bought and this makes at least 2 headbands, you might be able to make 3 even, but I only made 2. But there were some things I already had…anyway, just see below for the list and prices and whatnot. :)

Supply List
- 1 ½” Ribbon (I paid $5.99 for this at Michaels, take a look at Walmart and Dollarama, you might find something you like for a little less. Just make sure it’s 1 ½” wide)
- Adhesive Pearls (I paid $4.49 for these at Michaels. These are actually for scrapbooking and are actually a set of two decals that I’ve just taken apart. I’ve saved money doing it like this instead of purchasing several sheets to get the different sized pearls)
- Adhesive Rhinestones (I only paid $2.99 for this small package of several different sized scrapbooking rhinestones at Michaels as opposed to $6.99 for a container of way too many in the beading section)
- E6000 Glue (this cost $9.99 at Michaels. I bought the Bead and Jewelry one for the little nozzles that come with it, but they are really, really terrible so save yourself some money and just get this from Walmart for a little less. The only thing that makes this “Bead and Jewelry” is the fact that it comes with the nozzles or tips, otherwise it’s just the same E6000 glue as all the rest.)
- White Felt Sheet (I already had this so I’m not certain how much it costs, but if you don’t have any try a dollar store. My guess is it’ll be 2 or 3 sheets for $1)
- Mini Beads (Again, I already had these but if you look at Walmart you’ll find some there and they can’t cost any more than $2.99 or $3.99 for a vile. You could get them at Michaels too but probably pay more than Walmart although you’d probably have more selection. If you want a more bridal look, choose white, pearly, or silver colored ones)
- Beading Twine (Another thing that I already had but I paid $4.99 for this at Michaels. Try Walmart or if you have fishing line, use that, it’s fine for this purpose)
**If you don’t mind spending a little more on this headband, you can use Swarovski Crystals rather than the small rhinestone. What I did was purchase a pack of 22 Hotfix Swarovski Crystals for $6.99 at Michaels, and replaced  every second rhinestone around my flower and the two rhinestones on each end with these. It just adds a little extra sparkle than the plastic rhinestones.)**

Alright, so let’s get to the video! Oh, as I mention in the video, if you want me to show you how to style your hair the way mine is in this video, just leave me a comment. If enough people request it, I’ll do a tutorial! ;)

‘Kay, tha’s’all folks! Hope you liked it! Don’t forget to be sharing my videos and posts, your friends will be angry if they see you wearing this great headband and didn’t share with them how to do it! :)

  1. Samantha's attention to detail on this headband shows how much she cares about her projects and attention to detail. This also makes you want to pay close attention to everything she creates. I can't wait to make matching sets for my self, my daughter (skipping my two boys) and my mother in law.

    1. Well, thank you very much. I'm a bit of a perfectionist (which can be good and bad at times) and i only want to provide quality tutorials! I wouldn', *couldn't* have it any other way! Thanks for noticing and thanks for commenting and for all your support! Enjoy your headbands (once you make them)! ♥
