Tips and Tricks for Successful DIY Tie Dye

Arrange your felt balls in the order you will string them. You can string out the colors as you like; I spaced them evenly.

Step 1

Double up on the embroidery floss and string the balls on using a needle. If you find this part to be difficult, you might need a larger/thicker needle.

1. Braided DIY Headband

Decide on a finish length for your garland  (I went with five feet) and then cut the embroidery thread. Space the felt balls along the string.

2. Knotted DIY Tie Headbands

Knot both ends and hang.

3. Twisted DIY Headband

Swag your DIY garland about every three to five feet for a little interest. You never want to hang it straight. The swag (tacking it up at various points) will integrate into your decor better.
