Picture of Rhinestone Headband
I love sparkly things!  I particularly love Rhinestone Necklaces.  After a flop in trying to solder Rhinestone Jewelry (I haven't given up!) I decided to make a Rhinestone Headband!

*Warning:  When you take this off, you will pull out some hair.  I will take any suggestions on how to prevent the rhinestone setting prongs from catching on your hair.

** Extra sparkle created using Glitterboo.com.

I made a similar headband to prevent snags I used a strip of polymer clay(black) and then pressed my stones into the headband so that the prongs were set flush into the clay hope that helps

Very nice tip!
To try and prevent snagging you may try glossy fingernail top coat or polyurethane.

You can put a piece of felt on the headband
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  disneylover11 months ago
Yes you can.
I just bought some of this rhinestone chain off eBay, didn't know what I'd do with it but couldn't resist- thanks for the idea! Can't wait to see what else you come up with for it!!! Keep the great projects coming!

I'm still hanging onto the rest of it! I'm bound to find something to do with it!

Possible dumb question...the glue/adhesive bends with the band? I know sometimes rhinestones or whatever is glued is stationary and not really bendable. Just wondering. I love these!
Penolopy Bulnick (author)  Lkymama11 months ago
Sorry for the long delay! Yes it seems to bend just fine. Also, the links between the rhinestones contract so you can bend the headband since it has give there too.

Thanks! I love sparkly!
Using flat back crystals would more than likely keep from hair pulling better, no prongs needed. I use flat backs A LOT, it may take a little more time but I think it would look better as well
