Do a bling rhinestone trim headband for yourself!
If you are looking to make a gorgeous fashion-forward headband, then this is the DIY
tutorial for you. These sparkly rhinestone trim headbands are made of wholesale crystal
or pearl trim and they are very inexpensive when made from your own home. These
headbands are absolutely breathtaking and make wonderful hair accessories for prom
up-dos, weddings, formal events, dance teams, or even just to dress up an every day
outfit for a night on the town with some bling!
This three step crystal rhinestone trim headband tutorial will show you the most common
way the trim can be made into an easy-to-make trendy and elegant headband. Since
the trim does NOT stretch, you must add a section of elastic to it in order to get it both
on and off the head as well as make it fit snug and properly.
12-18 inches of rhinestone trim – rhinestone and pearl OR crystal rhinestone
1/4th inch flat elastic (cut to size) — you could also use 1/8th inch skinny elastic
Depending on how much of the rhinestone trim you want showing around your head, you
may or may not need to cut the trim down. To save on using all 18 inches of trim, you may
want to cut down the rhinestone trim down to fit on your head just from ear to ear. Using
a cutting tool, such as a jewelry snipper, cut your trim down to the length needed. Or you
can go ahead and use all 18 inches!
For the tear drop rhinestone trim, we cut it down to 12 inches to show you how it still fits
all the way to your ears and the elastic can be hidden when the hair is worn down or styled
in an up-do to hide it. Twelve inches down to 9 inches is the perfect amount for smaller
children as the entire 18 inches will not be needed to fit on a toddler .apos;s head.
Measure the amount of elastic needed to complete the headband circle. Cut the elastic about
2 inches short (up to 3 inches off, if you are not looping the elastic through any opening in
trim) of that number, as the elastic stretches. This will ensure that the DIY rhinestone
headband will fit secure on the head without being too tight or too loose. Then, to make
sure the ends of elastic do not fray – lightly singe the ends with a lighter. Be careful not to
burn the elastic though!
Depending on the type of trim purchased for your rhinestone trim headband, you will
either want to loop the end of elastic through the opening or you will want to directly
attach the trim to the elastic.
Any of our trim that has a hole in it, such as the tear drop, double bubble or eye of the
diamond, work great for looping the elastic through first (if you cut the trim down, you
must remember to keep the opening closed for you to be able to loop through it). And
then hot glue the end of the elastic to the other part of elastic that went in right before
the opening, creating a loop in the elastic around the trim. You will do this on both sides
of the trim to complete the circular headband, overlapping approximately 1/4th inch to
length of rhinestone trim you choose to use as well as the size of the individual’s head
that will be wearing the gorgeous headpiece.
