Ruffle Ribbon Headband

I had this idea for a headband...
Cute, super feminine, and way easy to make. All you need for this little gem is:

A thin headband
Some wide wired ribbon
Matching thread

To start off, bunch up one end of the ribbon and tie a knot around to hold it in place. (I doubled up on the thread so that it would not break when pulled tightly.)
Then take your headband and tie the ribbon on about an inch from the bottom so that the end is facing up. Wrap the thread around a bunch of times for each tie.
Then take the ribbon up about an inch and tie it again, giving the ribbon some bunch in between the two ties.
Then take the ribbon up again, this time make a little more space in between the ties.
Repeat the step again for ruffle number 3, again adding a little more space for a bigger ruffle.
Then do the fourth ribbon, turning the end of the ribbon back in to hide it. Cut off the remaining ribbon.
Now insert your finger into the ruffle and pull up so the ruffles are moving toward the top. (Almost heart shaped.)
And it's done. I love this headband and it looks as cute on adult hair as it does on this lamb.
Try it out!
