Doesn't seems like a clean solution, maybe you can try to derive a custom listview control and override the OnDrawColumnHeader method.
Here is an example where text alignment in header is changed, but you can modify to draw with a smaller font:

hi  ihad developed the user defined control as u said the code follows like this
private void UserControl1_DrawColumnHeader(object sender, DrawListViewColumnHeaderEventArgs e)
        {
            using (StringFormat sf = new StringFormat())
            {
                // Draw the header text.
                using (Font headerFont = new Font("Microsoft Sans Sarif", 8, FontStyle.Regular))
                {
                    e.Graphics.DrawString(e.Header.Text, headerFont,
                        Brushes.Black, e.Bounds, sf);
                }
            }  
        }

but my problem is when iam inheriting it and trying to add items from list box i cannot see any items in list view but ican see the scroll ball growing when i click the button the code for insert is as follows

private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
 string t = listBox1.SelectedItem.ToString();
            ListViewItem lv = new ListViewItem(t);
            userControl11.Items.AddRange(new ListViewItem[] { lv });
}
can u tell me the reason please
