50+ Cute & Crafty Headbands To Make

Posted By Tipnut On June 1, 2011 @ 12:25 pm In Crafty Ideas | 1 Comment

Here’s a fun list of crafty ideas for making headbands with plenty of different fabrics, materials and techniques found in this collection…some sewn, some knit, some crochet while others just require a glue gun, crafty bits and a metal or plastic headband to embellish. I’ve organized the list into two groups, the first batch features fabric & decorative trims, the second batch is a collection of free knit and crochet patterns. Have fun!
