Tiny Braids Headband Tutorial

08
15


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!

    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.

    This is adorable! I love that it almost looks like it is your own hair that is braided — such a sweet detail to a look!

    I have a question…. before you curl your hair would it curl as well if you flat ironed it first. My hair is naturally frizzy and i usually straighten it. thanx!!!!

    Love the color of the braids with your hair color. What color would you suggest for dark brown hair?

  31. Posted August 16, 2012

    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!

  32. Posted August 16, 2012

    Such a simple yet effective hair band. Looks lovely.

    Cute! Have a question…what color is the eyeshadow your wearing? Just luv that color. Thx.

    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???

    I love the pics because they are helpful and braided headbands and ponytails are awesome because my hair so thick.

    I do accept as true with all the concepts you have introduced for your post.
    They aree really convincing and can definitely work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are too short for beginners. May just you please lengthen them a bit from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.
