Default How to cover metal/skinny headbands

I want to make headbands for big girls teens, moms in general for ladies. I can get the headbands but they r not covered in anything its just the hardware itself.

Any ideas of what I can cover them with and how.

Just add embellishments if they are the metal ones. And you can always spray paint the metal ones but be sure to put a top sealant on them. And for plastic or acrylic you can always wrap with 3/8 or smaller ribbon and then embellish. My best headband sellers are my Hackle and Nagorie feather headbands. I just take a thin metal headband and use E6000 to glue the feather pad down. I then glue a strip of 5/8 or 3/8 ribbon over the glued part. If I want to dress it up, I'll add a rhinestone, small flower, beads, bows, or I just sell it with the pad. I'm closing a buy for the hackle pads tomorrow but the fill list will be up until all colors reach dozens.

I wrap most of mine with either taffeta or a thin polyester. I start at either end and then meet them on the side where the embellishment will go. Here is an example: http://www.etsy.com/listing/46582600...sette-headband

Do you mind sharing what type of sealant you use?

Thanks,

Nicole

My dh does the spray painting so I'm uncertain. But he buys it at Lowes.

I wrap super skinny plastic headbands in ribbon.... Zebra print is always a hit!
