Tutorial: How To Make Skinny Nylon Headbands

I recently went to a friend's baby shower where she got all kinds of cute hand made stuff for her little girl. One of her friends made her a bunch of these skinny headbands with a different colored bow on each one. After hearing how simple they were to make, I had to do some for my baby girl. I used silk flowers instead of bows but both are cute. If you decide to do the flowers check out this great tutorial from Homemade By Jill. Instead of sewing them like she does, though, I just used my hot glue gun to put them together but either one works.

Here's all you need:
Nylon pantyhose (size L or XL)
Rotary Mat & Cutter (or scissors)
Hot Glue Gun
Something cute to stick on top (Bow, Flower, etc)

Lay out your nylons and cut 1-2" strips from the heel all the way up the leg. Make sure not to cut over a wrinkle.


Hot glue your flower on to the side that doesn't show your rolled edges and you're done!
How easy was that?! Thanks for the idea Summer!
