Zipper Embellished Head Bands

If you watch the fashion gossip shows or flip open a magazine, it's hard not to notice that zipper detailing is a H-O-T trend right now. How does a crafty gal incorporate said zippers into her wardrobe without re-enacting Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video (respect, yo)? Headbands, my friends, headbands. They're the perfect accessory for getting your zipper on, in a snap! Here's how you can make your own.


Assorted Headbands
Metal Zippers
Liquid Fusion
Needle & Thread/Netting Scrap (Flower Version Only)


Straight-Up Version
  • Separate zipper and cut off ends.
  • Use Liquid Fusion to glue zipper strip on to headband. Let dry.
Flower Version
  • Separate zipper and cut off ends.
  • Using a needle and thread, sew a running stitch through zipper strip. Pull thread to make strip curl into flower shape. Hand tack to keep shape in place.
  • Cut a circle of netting. Scrunch, tack and fix to zipper flower with needle and thread.
  • Use Liquid Fusion to glue embellishment to headband.
