We are always looking for ways to repurpose things – why not use the old t-shirts we need to ride our closet of? We learned how to make DIY headbands out of soft cotton tees… and we’re addicted!! The headbands are super cute, customizable, and perfect for pulling your hair back. Here’s how we made them!
What You Need
hot glue gun
1. Lay your T-shirt flat on a table. Take your scissors and cut off the bottom hem. Then, cut two 1½ inch wide strips across both layers of the T-shirt.
2.Take one of the strips and create a loop by crossing the right side over the left. Lay the second strip in a “U” shape with the ends near the top of the loop.
Step 3: Place the right side of the “U” under the right end of the loop. Take the left end of the “U” and place under the entire top of the loop.
Step 5: You should have two ends on both sides of the knotted section. Holding both pieces on both sides, pull tightly.
Step 6: Measure the head of the person who will be wearing the headband. Cut the ends accordingly, so that it fits comfortably around their head. Cut a 2½ by 3½ inch piece of the T-shirt and place it under the two ends of the headband. Wrap it around the ends and hot glue it together.
