The Most Elegant Headband You'll Ever Make And Own

Today I'm going to show you how to create the most elegant headband you've ever seen.

And the best part is, it's easy and affordable. It looks way more expensive than it actually is!

Here is the final look... a beautiful pearl headband to compliment any classy outfit.

Firstly, you're going to need a basic headband to get started, and a pack of white glass beads. I used around 60 beads, all 12 mm in diameter.

You also need "glass and bead glue". This is important! I've tried this project with a hot glue gun and it does. not. work. well.

Trust me.

Luckily, this glue can be found and at any major craft store or online.

To get started, place a dollop of glue on the headband where you're going to place the bead.

Also add glue to any neighboring beads that will touch the bead you're adding.

The result is that the beads will not only be attached to the headband, but they will hold each other in place so that the overall structure of the headband is much much stronger.

I followed the pattern of two beads per row (with only one on the bottom where two wouldn't fit).

If you have a wider or more narrow headband, you can change this pattern, but keep it consistent for a professional look.

Give the beads about a day to dry.

Then go out and show off your new accessory to the world!
