  • Tape measure

  • Scissors

  • Ribbon, about 20 inches long and no wider than 2 inches

  • 4-inches length thin elastic, flat or rounded

  • Needle and thread


  1. Measure the wearer's head with a tape measure at the point where the headband will be positioned. Cut a ribbon 1 to 2 inches shorter than that length.

  2. Fold one end of the ribbon over an end of the elastic. With a needle and thread, make several stitches back and forth through the fold. Check to see if the headband fits; trim the ribbon or elastic if needed. Repeat the fold on the remaining ends of the ribbon and elastic.
