Make a 15mm Woven ribbon headband with grosgrain ribbon

You will need:

a hot glue gun,

1 15mm plastic headband,

4 x 64cm of 9mm grosgrain ribbon you can use grosgrain ribbon or satin ribbon.

 

I am using 2 x 64cm of Hot pink grosgrain ribbon and 2 x 64cm of Cappuccino grosgrain ribbon.

Glue 1 length of hot pink grosgrain ribbon to the cappuccino grosgrain.  Then do the same with the other 2 lengths.  Overlap about 1cm.

I am going to have the Hot pink grosgrain ribbon as my center colour and the cappuccino grosgrain ribbon as the outside colour.  With a dab of hot glue on the outside edge of the headband glue so the cappuccino grosgrain ribbon is on the headband. Hot pink grosgrain ribbon will face up to the right side.  Then glue a dab on the inside of the headband and glue the cappuccino grosgrain ribbon to the headband with the hot pink up to the left.

The top colours are your inside diamonds and the bottom colours are your outside triangles.
