Apply a strip of hot glue along the inside of the headband. Apply the glue in 3-inch lengths so the glue doesn’t dry too quickly as you wrap the ribbon.

Wrap the ribbon around the headband, overlapping it slightly. Press down on the ribbon on the inside of the headband to adhere it to the glue.

Continue applying the glue and wrapping the ribbon until you reach the end of the headband. Cut off the excess ribbon.

Apply a tiny dot of glue to one side of the outside of the headband. When wearing the headband, you will want the dot to be about 4 inches above the top of the ear.

Place the middle of a length of ribbon underneath the headband. Pull the ribbon sides up and tie them into a knot directly on top of the dot of glue. Tie your ribbon into a simple bow and cut off excess. Allow a full 24 hours for the glue to dry completely.
