Have a surplus of t-shirts you’ve stained or that no longer fit? Pick up some dollar store headbands and cut up some t-shirts to make and decorate your very own pretty hair accessories. This is a great project for young girls as well as teens. Ideal for summertime fun and for back to school fashion!
This is a great time to teach braiding too, if your daughter doesn’t know how yet. Braiding is almost like a right of passage, isn’t it??
Cut t-shirt into long strips about 3/4″ wide. Glue the end of a strip to the inside end of the headband, about an inch up the band. Fold strip around the band end and glue to the outside as well, this will tack it in place.
Gluing as you go, tightly wrap the strip around the headband. If you run out of shirt-strip before finishing, simply tack the end of the first strip in place and begin with another until the headband is completely covered.
Rubber band or tie three strips together then braid them. Glue the braid to the top of the head band. Carefully trim the ends and glue in place.
That’s it! Easy peasy. :)
