D.I.Y. No Sew Headband From an Old T-Shirt

Every night when I go to wash my face, I struggle with keeping my fringe out of water’s way. Typically when I am done exfoliating it looks like I took a shower since my fringe turns into a mop. ย That is why when I came up with a solution to my problem this week I was so thrilled! Plus, the best part, it is a great recycling project since you can make it from an old t-shirt. Last week when A and I cleaned out the closets in the name of spring cleaning, we found a ton of old t-shirts that either had holes or stains that would make them unsaleable at Goodwill, but I hate the idea of tossing them out! So this month I have come up with three different D.I.Y.s for what to do with your old ratty t-shirt instead of throwing it away! Today it is a super simple, one minute headband that you can make without sewing!

FYI, the stretchier the t-shirt jersey the better for this one, as it won’t stretch out and it can retain it’s shape better! Enjoy!

Step 1: Figure out how much of the shirt you want to use for your headband, my shirt was a crop top (that I spilled coffee on at the front neck, oops) so I didn’t have a lot to work with. My headband ended up being about 2″ wide which works perfectly. Be sure to cut the hem off first and measure your width up from there (the hem will feel annoying and scratchy if you keep it attached).

Step 2: Now literally all you have to do is stretch out your headband and make one twist, then bring the two side together and voila! You have a super cute twisty headband, ready to wear running or just in the morning while you get ready for the day!

What is your favorite way to recycle old t-shirts?

    Hey Izzy! Those are super great options too! I like to have some painting clothes on hand as well and I also like to use the really gross, holey shirts for cleaning rags or projects like this! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for reading!
