How to make a lace headband

Some days, you just don't have time to do a fancy hairstyle. This doesn't mean, however, that you have to wear a boring ponytail. Hair accessories are a simple way to dress up an otherwise average look. This headband is very boho chic, but the gems give it just the right amount of sparkle.
Although the chevron ribbon gives the headband a playful touch, it can easily be swapped out for a neutral tone to create a more cohesive look. Check out the instructions and video to see how you can make this headband in a few easy steps. Because of its neutral color it is also easy to match with any outfit, so you can throw it on as soon as the glue has set.
