Picture of DIY Lace Bow Headband
I decided to make this adorable lace headband because I had one which was similar and I love it and kept getting compliments on it! The other one is worn out and old - so I thought of making a newer nicer one - in white lace material that I had left over from an old project. This headband is so cute and easy to make!

Items Needed:
  • Sewing machine (or you can hand sew this if you have the patience)
  • Lace Material (1/4 to 1/2 a yard to be safe)
  • Thin elastic pieces or a thin elastic headband
  • Needle & Thread (you will need to do a very small amount of hand-sewing)
  • Pins

Step 1: Cut out Pieces of Material for Lace Bow Headband

Now you'll need to lay out your material and cut out the pieces. Please see image for more details and precise measurements.

Also, please note that your head may not be the same size as mine. To be safe, you may want to cut the elastic piece an inch or two longer than my recommended length, so you can then fit it, and cut it to the right size according to your head size!

Pieces Needed and Measurements:
  • Main headband piece: 18 inches long, 5 inches high
  • Bow: 6 inches long by 6 inches high
  • Band: 4 inches long by 2 inches high
  • Elastic Pieces: 1/4 of an inch thick and 4 1/2 inches long (please leave an inch or two longer so you can adjust to your head size)
Once you cut out the pieces, then please fold the main headband piece the long way and pin it down. Also, fold down the band piece the long way and pin it along the long opening. Lastly, you will need to fold the bow piece down as well and pin the piece along the open edges on the two sides.
