DIY Crystal Headband

So we’re moving firmly into “event season” now – once everyone returns from their summer shenanigans; from September through till Christmas there seems to be a party, soirée, shindig, show and gathering every other night. With that in mind, I fancied DIYing a simple yet eye-catching bit of head fashion for the coming season. This headband is fab and totally versatile – dressed up or down, I have no doubt I’ll be getting plenty of use out of it over the next couple of months!

DIY Crystal Headband Materials

Tutorial:

  1. Cut a length of gold wire, twice the length of the headband.
  2. Begin to twist the gold wire around one end of the head band.
  3. When you get a quarter of the way up the headband, thread the crystal beads onto the wire and continue to twist the wire around the headband to secure them.
  4. Carry on twisting the wire down the end of the headband.DIY Crystal Headband wired
  5. Plug the glue gun in and heat up the glue. Squeeze a dollop onto the underside of the headband and begin to twist the gold thread around the headband (over the gold wire)
  6. Continue twisting the gold thread over the entire headband. Squeeze a dollop of hot glue on the other end of the headband to secure the gold thread.
