I like the idea of headbands, but I hate how they dig into my head! I was so excited to see this very simple idea on creating one made from two hair bands and a ribbon! I cut the ribbon to 15 inches with a 1/2 inch seam allowance for each end. The two hair bands together were 4 inches, for a 20 inch circle headband. I have a rather large head, so you may want to measure before you commit to that length for yourself!
