How to Make Beaded Bandanas

Save

Bandannas are a fashionable way to hold your hair back or tie around a pony tail. They can even be used to drape over end tables and nightstands to show off your style within your home. Add a customized touch to your bandannas by beading them along the edges with different colors of beads to coordinate with your outfits, celebrate a holiday or show off the colors of your favorite sports team.

Things You'll Need

  • Bandanna
  • Ironing board
  • Iron
  • Pony beads
  • Measuring tape
  • Scissors
  • Unfold your bandanna and lay it over your ironing board.

  • Press and smooth your bandanna with your iron.

  • Measure to 3 inches from one edge and fold that edge along the 3-inch mark. Iron the crease in your fold to keep it marked and unfold it. Repeat the same process so you have ironed creases 3 inches from each edge.

  • Make slits every 1/4 inch along all four sides up to the crease.

  • Slide three pony beads of any color onto each of the 1/4-inch strips, and knot the end of the fabric to hold the beads.
