Upcycled T-shirts: Head Banging Headbands

So, what do you do with the scraps from your upcycled retro-thrift-store t-shirts?  Make headbands, for one thing!

Tada! New redone shirt and hair accessory, to boot!

Here's whatcha do.

  • Take a longish length of your t-shirt snippings, create a loop that comfortable fits over your head as a headband, and tie in a double knot.
  • If you don't have a longish length, take two smaller ones and sew them together (as I did with this one) and follow the knot instruction above.
  • Using smaller scraps, tie to knot to create a pom-pom (or starfish, as I like to call mine.)
  • Slip it on and high five everyone you meet that day.

Friend #1:  "Wherever did you get the charming hair accessory?"
You:  "I made it!  Amazing what you can do with t-shirt scraps, isn't it?"
Friend #1:  "Oh yes, quite amazing.  I think I'll make one, too!"
You:  "Now your thinkin'!"
