Crafting Tips and Tricks

 Measurements for Girl’s Headbands:

Here is a quick guide on how to cut your elastic when making headbands or hair ties. Baby headband sizing, of course, can be any measurement you want, if you measure the baby/child’s head – you can simply take that measurement and cut your elastic according to that. However here is a quick reference for “standard” measurements for girls of all ages: 

Sizes we recommend for our fold over elasticprinted elastic,  3/8" elastic, 1/8" elastic:

{ Premie} 11-12″

{ Newborn } 13″

{ 0-1 Year } 14"

{ 1-6 Years} 15″

{Child-teen} 16.5″

{ Adults } 17.5″

*when cutting your elastic, we recommend cutting approximately 0.5″ larger than the recommended sizing, so you can overlap the elastic to glue or sew it together.


Sizes we recommend for stretch lace and glitter elastic and Velvet elastic  *this is slightly larger due to the elasticity being tighter than standard elastic

{ Premie } 11.5-12.5″

{ Newborn } 13.5″

{ 0-1 Year } 14.5″

{ 1-6 Years} 15.5″

{Child-teen} 17″

{ Adults } 18″

*when cutting your elastic, we recommend cutting approximately 0.5″ larger than the recommended sizing, so you can overlap the elastic to glue or sew it together.


Measurements for DIY hair ties:

{Child-teen} 8″

{ Adults } 10″

*You will get about 2 inches of “tie” when these are finished, of course this will depend on how close your knot gets to the end. We might also recommend adding an inch to these measurements when using the glitter elastic for DIY hair ties as it does have a tighter stretch than the regular elastic. 

Hopefully this will be a great reference for measurements for elastic headbands and hair ties that you can use in all your crafting projects!
