If you are determined to impersonate Sylvester Stallone as he appeared in the Rambo movies, then you will need to sport a Rambo headband. You can craft a Rambo headband using scrap materials from around your house -- or from materials you can gather from your local thrift store. The original Rambo movies showcased a red Rambo headband, while the newest Rambo movie showcases a black one.


Step 1

Insert a glue stick into the back of the hot glue gun. Plug the gun into a power outlet. Let the glue warm up while you are preparing for the other steps.

Step 2

Brush and put your hair into a ponytail. This is important so that you do not get hot glue in your hair.

Step 3

Place a red or black tie across your forehead and pull it to the right side of your head. Tie the tie in a tight, single knot.

Step 4

Squeeze glue on top of the knot and press the top of the tie end down over the glue. This helps the tie ends lay flat while further securing the knot.


Get dressed in your Rambo costume first. Leave the headband to the last because you will be securing it on your head and it will be difficult to adjust it after you have glued it.
