DIY Lace Headband

One of my favorite things in the world of crafting is lace. Lace can be so simple yet elegant and beautiful, much like a Barbie doll wedding dress. :) So I had the bright idea one day to make a headband of lace. Here’s how I did it…

Hot glue gun/hot glue

I began by sizing the elastic around my head. I didn’t want it to be too tight, because when it is I get a headache. I left it just loose enough to not hurt. I marked where I needed it to be with a pin.

I then sewed a square around the overlap of my elastic so that it would stay put, nice and snug.

Now it’s hot glue time! I hot glued the hemmed edge of the lace around one edge of my elastic band. After I did this, the lace sort of stood up and made me look like a baby wearing a bonnet. Enter needle and thread to save the day!

I hand sewed down the other edge of the elastic to hold the lace in place. That’ll do it!

Voila! My new headband was made. Let me know if you make one of your own…I’d be thrilled to see it! Happy lace-ing!
