Are you talking about woven or even wrapped with ribbon?

Hi. How do you cover a plastic headband with ribbon but not weaving. I just want to do a simple one color wrap on a 1/2" headband. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I use 3/8" wide ribbon, I prefer grosgrain. I use hot glue, so I put just a dab at the bottom of the headband, and start the ribbon SLIGHTLY below the bottom of the headband, and at an angle, not quite 45 degrees, and glue the ribbon to itself, if that makes sense. I wrap it around just like you would winding hair on a curling iron for "corkscrew" curls. Sides are touching each other, but not over lapped. I add just a tiny bit of hot glue every inch or so on the underside of the headband. When I get to the other end, I wrap just slightly past the end of the plastic to be sure it's not showing, cut & seal the end, and again with a tiny dab of glue, stick the ribbon to itself.

Hope that makes sense....late night writing is not always my clearest!

The explanation above was pretty right, but what I need to add is. That what I do before I start wrapping very but very tightly (that is the secret). I cut a piece of ribbon less than an inch long and put it across on each extreme. ( I donīt know if I am making myself clear). The idea is to cover the ends of head band and it will look tidy and no one will get to see the color of the plastic headband.
