What you will need:
  1. a black headband.  
  2. black ribbon if you don't have a black headband and need to line or cover it with the black ribbon
  3. different ribbon pieces with Halloween or fall motives.  I cut pieces so they are at least 8 cms long.  You can make them as short or long as you want.
  4. one strip of a smaller ribbon to wrap everything,  It needs to be at least 4 cms long
  5. scissors
  6. glue gun

Once you are ready with a black headband, set it aside, and prepare the fall motive ribbon pieces.
I used 3 pieces of ribbon and made an "X" with the green and orange ribbon.  Over that, I set the black and white polkadot ribbon in the center.  You can use as many as you want.  Get creative!  Finally, I added 2 strips of white ribbon which I had curled with a pencil.  You can also do it with your fingers.

When all my pieces where set where I wanted them, I took the 4 cms piece of ribbon (the plain orange one in my image) and set it vertically over the arranged set, and over the black headband.  I wrapped the set and the headband with the 4 cms piece of ribbon.  At the end of the 4cms piece, and under the headband, I dabbed a dot of glue gun. This will allow for everything to be held in place.  Once that was done, I cut the leftover of the orange ribbon that stuck out.
