This morning, the girls were beading at the kitchen table. Our bead box is filled with, well, beads, but also with the different string-type materials upon which to thread those beads - elastic strings, plastic beading cord, regular string, chenille stems etc. While playing with these, Emily made these very easy headbands.
You'll need chenille stems
and some elastic string. Ours was about 1/8" thick- the same size as the kind used to tie shoes in pairs in department stores like Target.
Tie a good dead knot around a chenille stem, about an inch from one end.
Fold down the tip of the chenille stem, and twist to hide the sharp wire end.
Repeat for the other end of the chenille stem, testing it around the wearer's head for size.
