My co worker so graciously accepted my begging of her to model this for me, isn't she cute.
And here's a very adorable Texas Monkey customer modeling her's. Ok she's my too cute for words niece but still a satisfied monkey.
First we need to gather supplies, you will need:
7/8 size ribbon in pattern and color of choice
Lighter or Wood Burning Tool
2 Hole Bean Toggles ( I purchase mine from Here)
Step 1 Cut your ribbon, I usually cut 28 inches for girls and 30 for adults but sometimes little girls like to have extra long tails that they can tie in a bow when they wear their hair up so I cut about 33 inches for those.
Step 2 Take your ribbon end and roll it to a point like the picture below.
Step 3 Thread the rolled end through one of the toggle holes.
Repeat for the other end and thread through the 2nd hole and it should look like this.
Step 4 Cut your ends to an angle and heat seal your ends with burning method of choice, I use a lighter, but a wood burning tool is awesome too.
Here they are displayed at one of my shows.
Here's Me wearing one
And my adorable co worker again.
Note: A little tip, if you have an odd shaped head that doesn't seem to hold headbands well you can simply add some silicone glue, velvet fabric or ribbon, or velcro to the inside of the band where it rests on your head to help it from sliding. I personally use Hold It by Duck Tape.
