20 inches of three types of lace or ribbon. You may want to double up if one of your strands of lace or ribbon is significantly narrower than the others. As you can see in the picture I used two strands of the narrowest type of ribbon to even out everything.
2.5 inches of elastic
Sewing Machine (glue will work also)
If you want to make the flower extras you will need. A silk flower, a button, some extra ribbon, a couple of wooden beads, and a crocheted doily. I purchased all my items from JoAnn’s Fabrics.
Braid the lengths and tape them together at the other end. The length of the braid should now be around 18 inches. Pull the taped ends off the table and fold it around the end of the braid so both sides are now taped.
Once you have done this you can add some ribbon around the outside of the place where the braid and the elastic intersect. As shown in this picture.
Now you have a beautiful braided headband. If you want to add the flower so it looks just like the picture here are the instructions for the extras.
Take your silk flower apart. Pull the center from the petals and carefully separate the petals.
