Default How do YOU make your metal headbands?

Right now I am only making hair bows, hair clips and crochet headbands in my shop but I would LOVE to start making the pretty little metal headbands for teens and adults. I just don't know how. If anyone could share with me how you make your headbands I would really appreciate it. If anyone has any tutorials to show me that would be GREAT!

I like to wrap mine with ribbon and then glue whatever it is (flowers or bow) to the top surface and to the side. Placement is key. Good luck!

Your headbands are beautiful. What size headband and ribbon do you use if you don't mind me asking?
P.S. I LOVE your ribbon roses. Care to share how you make those or direct me to a site that would show me? thank so much

Hi!

I like 1/8 or 1/4 inch headbands and I like to wrap them with ribbon that is either 1/8, 1/4 or 3/8 in width and it depends on the type of ribbon too.

The ribbon roses I taught myself after three days of experimenting after seeing some instructions online for another version. Through my own weird way they came out different (maybe I'm doing it backwards??)and I've just continued my way of making them, and on occasion I see some others that look similar. Thanks for the compliment, I really appreciate it
