DIY; Bejeweled silk headband

Create this Oscar de la renta headband at home. You’ll need a 5/8″ thick silk or velvet ribbon, 1″ thick black ribbon, both about two feet long, and a 7″ long 3/8″ thick black elastic. Cut your elastic to 6 1/2 inches and both ribbons to 15 1/2″. Sew the Black ribbon over the silk/velvet over the middle area where your forehead will be, leaving out the edges. Tuck the black elastic in between the black and silk ribbons on one end and stitch over it several times in order to keep the elastic strongly attached. Repeat this step on the other side. Now using invisible superglue, attach any sparkling, lightweight brooch or broken jewelry piece in the middle. Let it sit for three to four hours. Voila, we have our headband!
