Back-to-School Craft Idea: DIY Headband Makeover

Photography by Morgan Gable of

Looking for some fab new accessories to round out your child’s wardrobe? We stumbled upon this great DIY headband idea over at, where super crafty mom Morgan Gable shares her tutorial for taking an old busted headband and giving it new life by turning into a gorgeous band with a bow.

These headbands are not only a great way to make back-to-school wardrobes a little fancier, they’re also a great accessory for moms too!

What you’ll need:
• Headband
• Ribbon (Morgan used 7/8″ wide for this size bow, but you should adjust measurements according to your ribbon width)
• Scissors
• Hot glue gun

You’ll find the full directions for this  over at Don’t have a headband that needs fixing? We think this is a great way to dress up some plain, inexpensive headbands from the dollar store, too!
