These bachelorette DIY headbands were so fun to make! I wanted to create something for my sister-in-law that she can use for her bachelorette party and bridal shower. These fit the bill – they’re fun and I’m pretty sure she will love them. Come read how I made them so you can make them for your own bachelorette party, bridal shower, or give to a friend who needs one!
- Plain Headbands
- Hot Glue Gun
- Crepe Paper
- Electronic Die Cutter
- Clear Coat Spray
- Applicator Bottle
- Template (SVG or DXF)
Size and cut four pieces of each word on chipboard material to layer. I have used cereal box chipboard in the past, however, sometimes they do not cut as cleanly. To size it, I took a photo of the headband laid on my cutting mat, imported the cutting mat on the cutting screen, and sized it to align with the on-screen cutting mat. I then resized the words to fit the headband image before copying it to cut four of each word.
Glue and layer the words. If you have really small pieces, it may help to use an applicator bottle with a really thin tip, such as what I used in the photo below. Wait for the layers to dry and harden.
Now for the fun part – cutting crepe paper to layer! Cut a few layers of crepe paper streamers into fringes as illustrated in the photo.
Using a hot glue gun, layer each strip so you have a fringy background.
To create the smaller fringes, fold the crepe paper in half before cutting the fringes and gluing them down.
For the bride’s headband, I added some tulle on the back. Fold the tulle as you go to create little pleats and then glue it down with your hot glue gun.
For your cut words, cover it with glue and then the glitter color of choice. After you’re happy with how your glitter looks, spray it with a clear coat to secure the glitter.
Attach your word at the base with a dab of hot glue in the middle and the ends of the word.
And you are done!
