Hello everyone! We are here with another simple blog, but it is very fun and easy to do! I hope you are all excited!
I was in Target in the dollar section (a very dangerous section of the store for me and my mother) and found this awesome leather ribbon. I loved the colors and knew that they would look great as some sort of project. I didn’t know what, but I would figure something out.
And that I did.
I took each piece and measured it out to the size and a half of my head. I then added a little extra for safety. I did this with all three pieces for all three of the designs I am about to show you.
The next thing I did was tie a knot in the end with a loop. This was going to be the end of the headband.
The first design I did was a simple chevron design. I had the brown as the outside strands, white as the second and fifth strand, and blue and the middle two strands. I crossed the outside strands over to the middle from both sides to make a v shape. I then continued this pattern until I finished the entire headband.
The second design was a bit more fun, but tricky. I laid the leather out in the same pattern. But this time instead of doing a chevron design, I did a bow design. I tied a bow about the entirety of the leather and put the tails in the middle to use again. After tying 3 bows of each color, I then braided the rest of the leather in a simple three strand braid.
The final design was the most complex, but probably the most fun. I separated the strands into two sets of three, with one color in each set. I then started with a braid and went a short distance. After that, I tied a knot around the entirety of that set, five knots for each color. Unfortunately, the strand was a lot shorter than I expected it to be.
So with the other set, I did a simple braid on the entire thing. When I finished that braid, I tied the two together so they wouldn’t come apart. Unfortunately, it looks a little silly, but it works if you have a side braid or ponytail.
And here are the three finished looks!
And there they are! I really like how they turned out and they were super simple and easy to make. And the supplies weren’t super expensive! If you have any questions about how I made any of these headbands, please let me know!
