Tiny Braids Headband Tutorial



A simple little craft. And you can practice your braiding.

First, go to Michaels.




*it's important that you cut the strands longer than you need them since braiding will shorten them up a bit.


*this is how I  made all my friendship bracelets when I was a child.






*use hot glue to secure the cording at the base




Enjoy!

  2. This is such a cute craft! I love braids. I'm not sure I could pull off the headband, though, without looking like a 10 year old.

  20. Perfection! I love this idea. I need to go hunt down some supplies because I love the idea of wearing a headband but always feel like I look about three years old when I put them in. This one is so cute yet sophisticated - love!

  27. Just saw this on Sew Mama, Sew! this morning and love it. Super cute! And that is definitely how I made friendship bracelets too. Occasionally I'd safety pin the knot to my jeans. And am I the only one who would sometimes forget about it and stand up and still have tape (and sometimes a half-braided bracelet) stuck to my pants???
