Instructions

Step 1: Cut three 40 inch lengths of wire. (You can use all the same color or mix and match several colors.)

Step 2: Fold all three strands in half, making six strands. Use all six strands to string 1 crimp tube. Place the tube near the middle of the wires, creating a small loop for attaching the ribbon later, and crimp.

Step 3: Separate the 6 wires into three groups of 2 wires each and braid. If you want, you can add beads as you go.

Step 4: Use all six strands to string 1 crimp tube. Pass back through the tube, leaving a small loop, and crimp.

Step 5: String a 14-16 inch piece of ribbon through one of the loops and form a double overhand knot to secure. Repeat for the other loop. To wear, place the braided section of the headband on the head and tie the ribbons together at the neck.
