I might try lighter method. I know many people use woodburner, but I didn't know lighter works as good as wb. Just melt the both ends together and hold it???
I remember coming across a thread on how to make FOE headbands a couple months ago and Lilredsmiles explained it perfectly(she always does)! Here is the easy, no-fail method!

Instead of using grosgrain for the loop, I just cut some FOE and use that as the loop...matches perfectly, of course! HTH
