Lace headband

Aug 5, 2014 12:00:00 AM

For this tutorial, we thought of wedding hairstyles or parties This lace headband is very simple to make and adds a nice customization to a simple hairstyle. The tutorial can be adapted to the manufacture of any lace or ribbon headband, it just requires that the metal fastener width is adapted to the ribbon width!

- about 45 cm of 35 mm cotton lace

- 2 antique silver metal clips, 3 cm width

- about 18 cm of black or white elastic, 3 mm width, 4 gums (according to the color of your light or dark hair)

- some sewing thread matching the lace (raw or white) and a needle

lace headband tutorial

1 / Prepare your sewing needle with the thread and lace.
