Need a time efficient, easy arts and crafts headband project to do at home? This twisted turban headband tutorial is not only a simple fashion project, but it results in a beautiful twist head wrap that you can wear for any occasion! The turban style twist of these DIY lace headbands allow you to wear this hair accessory in many different ways. Start with two inch lace, or one inch lace for a completely different result. If you choose the two inch lace, as shown in this head wrap tutorial, you can wear it thin or wide. Simply slip on this inexpensive headband for a fun look that can be worn to dressy occasions like weddings, or just for an updated every day look.
Twisted Turban Headband Supplies needed:
- Approximately 36 (child) – 42 inches (adult) – one inch or two inch stretch lace
- Matching thread (with sewing machine or needle to be hand sewn)
Cut stretch lace down to size. To figure out approximate size needed, fold the yard of lace in half and wrap around your head. Cut any excess off. Remember, the lace is stretchy but will be sewn together resulting in about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch overlap.
Fold your single piece of lace in half. Line up the ends and cut through to give you two separate 18 inch strips. Then, fold the lace strips in half again. You will have four open ends of cut lace matched up together.
Make sure all ends are lined up as best you can and cut across them to give a smooth, finished look.
Make an ‘X’ with the two strips of lace. Whichever strip of lace is on the bottom, pull that upwards to create a loop. Then lift, and pull the remaining strip of stretch lace to create a second loop.
While keeping the knot in the middle of the two loops of the lace, fold the lace so that all ends are matched up EXACTLY together.
Using a sewing machine, or with a needle and thread, run a line down the four open ends of the lace approximately 1/4 inch in. Doing this will result in your beautiful DIY twist turban head wrap!
With over 27 color options available in both our one inch and two inch lace, you can make a color option that should fit any outfit! If you want a more colorful, festive look – mix and match the two pieces of lace to create a two-toned twist headband!
