Sometimes we all need a little extra embellishment. This past Wednesday was my birthday, and what I really wanted was a tiara. Since that was a bit too much, I made this glam Satin Headband DIY instead.

Don’t wait for a special occasion to be glam, any day is a great excuse to add some embellishment your life!

Satin Headband DIY Feature


What youll need to make your Satin Headband DIY:

  • 1 Yard plus 3 or 4 inches of 2” satin ribbon
  • 1 Elastic hair band or strong ¼ inch elastic
  • Brooch
  • Pins
  • Sewing machine
  • Scissors

Satin Headband DIY Supplies

Step 1
Cut your ribbon. Youll need to cut 2 pieces about 13 inches each and use the remaining amount at least about 13 inches, to make a tube for the elastic.

Step 2
Take your piece thats about 13 inches and fold it in half lengthwise. Using your sewing machine sew a seam, as close to the open edge as possible.

Step 3
Turn the piece of ribbon you just sewed right side out.DIY Satin Headband

Step 4
Take your elastic and cut it to 10 inches. Be sure to measure your head, all measurements are for my head and you will want your satin headband to fit a bit snug.

Step 5
Place a safety pin on each end of your cut elastic band and feed it through your satin ribbon tube. Putting a safety pin on both ends will keep your elastic from pulling all the way through.How to Make a Satin Headband DIY

Step 6
Take your 2 pieces of ribbon that you cut 13 inches and place one on either side of your satin tube with the elastic inside. I made 2 small pleats on each side of the ribbons as I pinned them to the tube with the elastic, be sure to pull your elastic and leave about a half inch extra above where you will make your seam. You will do this for both sides.
