How to make a DIY no-slip headband

This is a fun DIY project that you can do in the afternoon!

Making your own no-slip headband is a great way to save money and get a custom-fit headband that’s perfect for your own unique head shape.

It’s easy to make and will stay in place, even if you are trying to grow out your bangs. Just follow these steps:

1. Cut the ribbons

First, you’ll need to determine the measurement of your head. To do this, simply use a tape measure. Once you have your measurement, leave a bit of space for the skinny elastic. Next, you’ll need to cut the ribbons. Be sure that the ribbon is the same size as the velvet ribbon.

2. Cut the skinny elastic

To estimate the size of the skinny elastic you need, simply connect it to the ribbons. You can then try it on to get a feel for how tight or lose you want the headband to be. If it feels too loose, you can always trim the excess elastic off.

3. Attach the ribbon and velvet ribbon

Now you can start sewing the two ribbons together. Attach one ribbon facing up, and the other ribbon facing down. This will create a strong bond between the two materials.

4. Attach the ribbon and skinny elastic

Then, you can sew the skinny elastic to the ribbons. Just be sure to leave enough slack in the elastic so that it can stretch over your head. You don’t want it to be too tight!

Now that you’ve made your own no-slip headband, it’s time to put it to the test! How does it feel? Comfortable, right? And so easy to wear! If it’s too long, you can always adjust the skinny elastic.

Isn’t it amazing how something so simple can make such a big difference? Now you can enjoy your workouts without worrying about your headband slipping off. Thanks for trying out this DIY project!
