Default How to lined/wrapped headband

So I want to make some of this for the older girls. It looks pretty easy, but I have few questions.

How do you make sure the ribbons stays put?
And how do you make non slip grip on? and what do you use?

I line the inside with 1/4" double sided tape. This really helps the ribbon stick to the headband, HTH.

Ditto for the double sided tape. works great everytime. You can also glue velvet ribbon to the inside of headband to make it non slip.

I am confused on how to start and end it without it looking like poop!!!! Any ideas there?? Do you cut on an angle and start wrapping at a certain angle??

I do the same with the 1/4" tape. I usually end up also placing a small piece on the outside of each end, as well as small piece on the very top outside of the headband for added security.

The ends are funny to do. I usually start on the inside, wrap around once and then start wrapping at an angle all the way to the other end and then I do a once around at the end too so the ends "match". I couldn't figure out a better way to do it, so curious if anyone else has a better suggestion...

Here are some pics I have demonstratiing the beginning and end of doing the headband. I used both 3/8" and 3/4" headbands and 3/8" and 5/8" ribbon. In the second picture I show how you need to leave a tiny bit of ribbon hanging over the edge. If you don't do this, then the white of the plastic will be visible with no way to cover it. I do this on both sides. This is where I add fabri-tac (or e-6000) glue and hold closed with the alligator clips. It dries hard and you will never know that the headband doesn't actually end there.

I use 1/4" velcro to hold the headband in place. It works better than my no slip grip which is silicone. The double sided tape I use is Sealah brand or Specialty Tape. There are usually group buys going on for the second one. I would not use any double sided tape you find in the stores. They are not commercial grade as these are. Hth!

Oh, I also don't overlap my ribbon. I just hold it really tight as I am wrapping it and make sure the ends touch with no gaps in the ribbon at all. The only place I have to overlap is when beginning and ending the ribbon. I have to do that to change my angle.
