DIY Tutorial: Cute and Simple Headband



I've seen similar headbands on taobao, eBay and some ulzzangs and I decided that it was easier to make my own than wait for a week, bidding on an auction, and cheaper than paying taobao shopping service fees and shipping. All you need is a simple headband, glue, one or two kinds of ribbon, needle, thread, scissors and a cute button.

Viděla jsem podobné čelenky na taobao, eBay a ulzzangs (asi je to pořád menší patvar než ulzzanzích) a usoudila jsem, že bude rychlejší ji vyrobit, než čekat týden až skončí aukce, a levnější než platit poplatky za zprostředkování taobao agentům a poštovné. Potřebujete jen nějakou čelenku, jednu nebo dvě stuhy, nůžky, lepidlo, nit a jehlu a roztomilý knoflík.


Glue the ribbon on the headband and cut the ends askew to prevent ravelling.

Nalepte stuhu na čelenku a zastřihněte konce šikmo, abyste zabránili třepení.


Make a bow - the style totally depends on your preference. I went for a double bow. It always looks better if you thread the ribbon through the bow so that both ends are in the bottom layers rather than on top.

Vyrobte mašli - styl závisí jen na vašich preferencích. Já se rozhodla pro dvojitou. Vždy vypadá lépe, když konce provlečete středem mašle tak, že jsou oba vespod, ne na vrchu.



Sew the button on top.

A nahoru našijte knoflík.


Sew the bow on the headband.

Přišijte mašli na čelenku.


And get a plastic surgery to look like those pretty ulzzangs. Just kidding, make-up can do the trick too.

A nechte si udělat platiku, abyste byli stejně krásní jako ulzzangs. Make up stačí.
