Revive an old headband in 5 minutes
I had a old headband that I liked when I was in the shop but my ever changing hair colour did not so I never got round to actually wearing it. I decided to give it a super easy and much needed revival!

  • How to make a fabric headband. Revive An Old Headband - Step 1
    Step 1

    Cut a piece of material into a long strip (about 3/4 times the length of the object you're going to cover should be fine). It doesn't have to be neat, nor equal width the whole way down- mine wasn't. I used an old dress I hadn't worn in many moons.

    Fold in the corners of the material at each end and glue. This makes it tidier in the long run.

    I had an extra bit left by the time I got to the end of the band so I just started winding round the other way and glued the end on the inside. Done.
