Double T Shirt Headband in 60 Seconds

Steph here again with a fast and easy tutorial. You’ve probably seen different versions of t-shirt headbands. You’ve maybe even made a few!  I love love this one, because it only takes 60 seconds to make.

Start with a t-shirt. If it’s been worn, make sure it still has some stretch to it. Otherwise use a new cheap one.

Cut the bottom hem off and discard, then cut a 1/2 inch strip.  (A rotary cutter and mat will make this easier than scissors, but you can use scissors also)

Pull the loop through your fingers making it curl. 

Twist the loop to double it up. If it’s too loose to fit around your head, tie a knot to shorten it up a bit.quick-headband
And it’s done!  Now you’ve got a cute way to add some color to your ponytail or messy bun.  Then this is what happens when you’re trying to take pictures with your phone in the bathroom trying to get a good one for your post šŸ™‚


Your assignment: Go find a t-shirt, post a pic of you wearing your new headband, and tag @steph_crafting_rain and @thegirlcreative on Instagram so we can see šŸ™‚

If you’re up for a project that takes a little longer than 1 minute, I recently posted this blue chair makeover where I even painted the fabric seat!
