Cut a 36 in length of 20 ga. TC Wire. WRap wire end around left end of headband to secure. Thread beads onto wire in this order: 2 "E" beads, 1 miracle bead, repeat this sequence eight times. Wrap wire around length of headband, keeping beads to front of headband, and beading angles into the wire to hold beads in place. Wrap wire around other end of headband. Cut off excess. 

Step #2

Cut a second 36 in length of 26 ga. TC wire. Wrap wire around length of headband, to anchor first wire and beads in place. Wrap wire around other end, and cut off excess. 

Hair Comb

Step #1

Cut a 36in length of 20 ga TC wire. Thread beads onto wire in this order: 4 "E" beads, 1 miracle bead, repeat this sequence using up the beads. Wrap wire around one end of hair comb. Bend the wire into angles, spacing beads along angles. Bunch wire along comb, occasionally wrapping wire through comb fingers. (Hint: refer to photo as necessary) Wrap wire around other end of comb to anchor.
