Use old, leftover t-shirts to make some cute headbands. No sewing required, so it is fast and easy. There’s no point in throwing away tees when you can use them for adorable headbands. With a project this easy, you can make one for every outfit!
Step 1Lay your T-shirt out flat on your work surface. Cut off the bottom seam.
Step 2Cut two strips out of the bottom of your t-shirt that are about an inch wide. (give or take, it doesnt need to be exact). Youll be cutting through both sides of the t-shirt at the same time here. When youre done, youll have two t-shirt circles
Step 3Cut the seam out of the t-shirt circles, which gives you 4 t-shirt strips
Step 4stretch them out, which causes the edges to roll
Step 5group your strips into 2 groups of 2
Step 6lay out your first group of strips in a U shape
Step 7take the other set of strips and make another U shape , intertwining the two groups. (so you have two connected U shapes )
Step 8take your measuring tape and measure the head youre making the headband for. You want the band to be about an inch or so LESS than needed because the band will stretch. You dont want it too lose. If you are like me and dont have a tape measure handy, just take yarn or string, wrap it around your head like it was a headband, cut the string to that length, cut a tiny bit off and use that.
Step 9Trim the ends of your t-shirt strips to the length you need and warm up that glue gun!
Step 10put glue on the ends of the strips on one side of your headband and squish them together a bit. Do the same with the other side
Step 11apply more glue squish both ends together
Step 12Now you have a headband, but the glued ends are ugly! No worries!
Step 13find a longish piece from the trimmings from the strips you trimmed, Flatten it out and glue it around the ugly part
Step 14All done! Put on your head and flaunt how stylish and crafty you are! I guess if youre feeling fancy, you could sew the ends but hot glue is pretty fun. Until next time, happy crafting~
