D.I.Y: Neon Headband

The summer is as hot as ever and the neon trend is still going strong. Here's a twist on the nautical rope headband. So let's get to it!

I wasn't able to find neon colored rope so I bought nylon rope and freshened it up with two coats of acrylic paint. 

1. Cut three 18-inch strands of rope and glue them together. Cut an 8-inch strand of elastic.

2. Sew on the elastic. 

3.  Glue a small piece(around 4 inches) of ribbon and wrap around a couple of times to cover up the stitches.  

4. Braid the rope and after you're done repeat the above steps on the other side. Your finished headband should look like this.
