Cut the fabric

Before you get started on creating this adorable headband it’s important to choose a stretchy fabric! I chose to upcycle this old grey shirt I had sitting in my closet. I love that these headbands can be made with any color or fabric design, as long as it is stretchy! I started by cutting a strip of fabric off the bottom of my shirt. My strip came to about 63 inches long.

Braid the fabric strip

I folded my fabric strip to get 3 long pieces. I then placed the ends of the pieces under a weight and started braiding.

Twist the ends

Once my gorgeous braid was complete, I twisted the folded piece of fabric at the end of the strip and threaded the loose piece through. I repeated this a few times until I had made a small knot. I then did the same on the end that had been under the weight.

Tie the ends together

All I had left to do was tie the two ends of the braid together and I was left with a perfect braided headband!
