I channeled my inner goddess and decided to create a gold headband out of a belt. I had this gold link belt sitting in my closet for a while and I never quite found the right outfit to pair it with so it went unused, until now. A DIY gold headband is pretty simple and if you don’t have a link belt you can always substitute with a gold coloured chain.
Here’s how I did it.
Gold link belt or chain. If you are using a chain make sure the holes in the chain are big enough to fit the elastic through
Gold coloured elastic*
*You can purchase from a fabric or craft store.
I took the belt and measured it around my head. I left about 3 inches of space in the back for the elastic.
I used the wire cutters to cut the belt to the length I wanted.
Now it’s time to add the elastic. I looped the elastic through one end of the belt.
I looped the elastic all the way through so there were two sides. I measured the belt with the elastic around my head to ensure it fit comfortably. I then cut the elastic.
Where the loop began I tied a knot around one end of the belt.
To make the elastic stronger I began twisting it.
I twisted until both ends of the elastic had an inch left. I tied a knot to secure the twist making sure there was still space at the end of the elastic.
I tied the ends of the elastics around the other end of the belt and cut off the the excess. I added a dab of glue to secure the knot.
