DIY Turban Headband - anthropologie inspired

How to make: DIY Turban Headband - anthropologie inspired // curlymade.blogspot.pt #crafts #color #handpainted #bow

I've been seeing so many types of these headband turbans on Antropologie, like this one, that I had to try and DIY one myself, it seemed easy enough, the only problem was that I didn't have any nice fabric to use. So I just grabbed my plain white fabric, and tried some patterns and textures to see which one worked best. As you can see I went for a colorful brushed look, and I'm pretty happy with the result.






You will need:
White or patterned fabric | plastic headband | hot glue gun | measuring tape or ruler | needle and thread | scissors | acrylic paint | paint brushes.


Start by cutting a rectangle of fabric with 18x11 inch or 45x28 cm, and a smaller one for the middle part of the headband with 6x4.5 inch or 15x12 cm.



Paint the fabric all over with random brush strokes in different colors like so, and once you have enough color, set it aside to dry and paint the smaller rectangle with the same technique.

Let both parts dry completely and cut the edges.


Fold the fabric in half, right sides together and use a fine line of hot glue to hold.

Turn the right side out and press the seam in the center. At this point, you can also see if the fabric is not too big for the headband, and trim if needed.


Gather the ends on both sides, making a small stitch to secure.

Glue the fabric to the headband, small sections at a time,


Cut 2 new small rectangles of fabric, and fold the edges inside, and hold it using a bit of glue.


Cover the end of the headband, by first folding the fabric in half, and wrapping it around


Grab the smaller rectangle that you painted, and fold the sides inside, I actually had to fold mine twice, because it was still too wide, to fit the headband.


Place the right sides together and glue the edges, turn the right side out, slide it onto the headband.



If you made this, what pattern would you use?
Hope you enjoyed this diy, and I will talk to you soon,

  3. Daniela, thanks for an awesome DIY. The band looks so pretty!

    If I were to make it, I would use stripes or polka dots, probably in black-n-white! I love colors, but recently I have fallen in love with graphic patterns. Combined with vivid colors, they can look very bold :)

    My first idea was to make black and white too, but then I was more in the mood for something colorful
