DIY: Fabric Covered Headbands

For some reason I just love headbands, maybe because I'm extremely lazy when it comes to styling my hair. In any event, I have this one jcrew headband that I absolutely can't live without, so when brainstorming for new craft projects, I figured recreating something just like it would be very useful

This is how my version turned out!

I can't express how easy this is to make, you can whip it up in under 10 minutes.
Here's what you'll need:
16" by 3" piece of fabric
plain headband 33 mm (1 3/4in)(I ordered a bunch off
double sided clear tape (you can buy this at a hardware store)

1. Cut a piece of fabric 16" by 3"
2. Cover the top of the headband with double sided tape
3. Figure out where the middle of your fabric is and line it up to the middle of the headband, press into place, then gently smooth out the fabric on the top of the headband

4. Place tape on the bottom insides of the headband, fold over your fabric
5. Cover the underside of the headband with double sided tape
6. Fold over fabric pressing and smoothing as you go

7. do the same to the other side
8. Complete!
