We have a large selection of rhinestone crystal and pearl trim and rhinestone appliques which can simply be added to a small snippet of skinny stretch elastic to create these beautiful creations for little cost. Big impact with inexpensive materials, what could be better? Premade headbands just like these can sell for over $40 each! But you can create them in minutes and for as little as just $12.00 to $17.00!
All the supplies you need are: a hot glue gun, elastic – to finish your DIY headband (using elastic for part of the headband ensures that it is stretchy to fit and that it will fit snugly against the head), and a couple felt circles to use on the back side to complete the look. As you can see, the felt circles vary in size depending on which headband you are creating and they may need to be cut down to size to fit accurately.
Hot gluing the elastic in place and then covering with a felt circle not only secures the stretch elastic in place but it also gives the headband a completed look. The felt can be used just at the ends, where the elastic is connected, or it can be run along the entire length of the applique/trim for extra support. These appliques are made with a soft suede mesh-like backing and are safe to use on children and as baby rhinestone headbands too!
