    Help! What’s the trick to get it stay up and not flop backwards? I put it all together right after I watched the video a few minutes ago for my daughter who’s turning 3 tomorrow morning and went to tie it with the rubberband it fell backwards. I’ve tried to re-adjust the positioning 4 times and just will not stay up. I followed your supplies, directions and lengths to a T. #Frustrated

      Hi Steph! Just wanted to make sure you got my response on Facebook. So sorry you are having trouble. I didn’t run into that problem. Maybe try placing the rubber band a little lower and adding 2 or more extra strips of tulle on each side to make it wider. Hope that helps!

    Just wanted to know what size headbands you used (1/2″, 1″ or 2″)? Thank you! We’re excited to try this, ordering supplies now!

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Rebecca! These are a little larger than 1/2″… about 5/8″, but I think 1/2″ or larger would work! Let me know how it goes!

  3. I’d love to see a picture of this on someone. Do you have one you could post? Thanks.

      Hi Bree! Here’s a silly picture of my daughter wearing it. I will post more once I get the girls from the softball team together:

    I’m absolutely loving these headbands. I just have to figure out if my daughter and her friends (Kindergarteners) know how to tie knots.

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Michelle! Oh that’s great! You know? My daughter is in first and I haven’t showed her how to do it! Now I need to!

    would it stay up?

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Yes! It works great. I made them for 12 little girls and no “flops”!

    Just did one so I can show my Girl Scouts tomorrow. They are super cute.

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Great!!! Let me know how they like it, Laura! So glad you like them.

  7. Frostie says:

    How wide did you make the strips?

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Frostie! I used 6″ wide rolls. The rolls were 6″ X 25 yards and make about three headbands.

  8. Libby Nussbaum says:

    Any ideas on how to do this for “boy trolls”?

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Libby! You could leave the flower off and do colors like blue, green, yellow, black, white etc. Then do stripes, so alternate the colors, or make one color on the outside and another color on the inside. Instead of the bow, use those black elastic hair ties. Try to find all black headbands too. I hope this helps! Let me know what you end up doing!

    These are so cute! They would make great party favors for my daughter’s 3rd birthday party =D Could you tell me where you bought the headbands? Thank you!!

    1. Alejandra says:

      Never mind! Just reread your tutorial and you mention you found them at Target. Thanks! =)

      1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

        Thanks, Alejandra! Glad you found what you needed and thanks for stopping by!!

    Hi, I would like to do these headbands for my daughters birthday party. However, I can’t seem to locate 5/8″ headbands. I can only find the skinny ones. 😕. Any suggestions or websites you can buy them from? Also my little girls is 4. I don’t know if they ned to be kid headbands or if regular heaxbands will work. Sorry, I’m not very crafty.

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Sherelyn! So glad you like them. I bought the ones I used at Target, but any 1/2 inch or thicker headband will work. You can try these: or these (affilate links). I hope this helps!!
