Beaded Headband tutorial


About a year ago, I made a beaded headband inspired by my beaded necklace tutorial.  Since then I've been meaning to write up a tutorial to make one and just haven't found the time until now.


The tutorial includes the option to make a double or triple strand headband.  Once you've made the headband you can embellish it as you please.  I like to make fabric flowers and hand stitch them to the headband.  The tutorial does not include instructions for the flower, however there are plenty of great tutes available on the web.  I used this one for making the flowers.


Another idea is to add birdcage veiling around the flower.  I haven't had a chance to give that a try yet, but would love to see it.  If you make a beaded headband, please be sure to share on the pretty ditty show and tell flickr group.

Below is the pdf.  Download and enjoy!

Hi Jamie!

I was looking for some hair accessories to make for myself and I found your beaded headband. It's really nice and unique that I can't help myself but share it on my blog and FB friends.
