Need a festive accent to wear with your “bedazzled” Christmas sweater at the party this week? My snap-your-fingers easy headband can be whipped up in the time it takes to bake a batch of sugar cookies, and I’m sure you have all the materials on hand in your gift wrapping arsenal…well, maybe not the headband, but I’m sure you have one kicking around the house somewhere.
Metallic curling ribbon
Mini sticky gift bows
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Starting at one end of the headband, wrap the curling ribbon around the end and secure with a drop of glue. Apply more glue to a small section of the headband and wrap the curling ribbon around, slightly overlapping each wrap of ribbon with the next. Keep applying glue to sections and ribbon wrapping until the entire headband is completely covered in ribbon. Secure ribbon at opposite headband end in the same fashion as the beginning.
I decided to then wrap additional ribbon in a contrasting color around the headband in more of a “candy cane” stripe style, repeating the same process of gluing each ribbon pass in place with the hot glue gun.
For the mini gift bows, trim the sticky paper (don’t removed the backing!) to the same width of the headband so that there will be no excess hanging off the headband when the bow is glued on. Position the bows to where you’d like on the headband and glue them on.
Now you can rock around the Christmas tree in style!
