Default What to do with headbands

Hey everyone! I bought some plain headbands today thinking I could figure out what to do with them but I can't LOL So I am trying to find some instructions on covering them. I've seen the woven ones and I think thats a bit too much for me to try right now. Is there a simple way to wrap them or anything? I really appreciate any help!! Thanks!

The width of ribbon depends on what width headband you have - you want the ribbon to be slightly wider than the headband. Sew really close to the sides on each side.
Ooooooooooo Ronda, I never thought of that. Bet that would be soooo pretty.

I've made the ruched ones out of fabric before, too. They turn out really cute.
When my stuff finally arrives, I am going to try this (especially the reversible one you just mentioned). Cool! You rock!
