13 Lovely DIY Headbands to Make ...

By Meream

DIY Headbands are great craft projects. They are great because they are usually easy to make, require only a few materials, and can easily be tailored to fit a little girl or an adult's head. DIY headbands make for wonderful handmade gifts, too. I admit that I don't like wearing headbands because they give me headaches but I do love making them. I spent many hours in Home Economics class hand sewing DIY headbands out of scrap fabrics. Fun times.
