DIY No Sew Headband From A T-Shirt Tutorial

I just cleaned out my closet and got rid of some tees that no longer fit me. I knew there would be a good use for them and there certainly was! I made these adorable DIY No Sew Headbands from t shirts and they couldn’t have turned out any cuter for an easy 5 minute project! Yes, they take all of five minutes to make. They are EASY!

Grab an old stretchy t-shirt or tank top/cami. For adults the cami works best because it is more stretchy. The tee worked really well for my daughter.

Then cut a 6” wide strip out of the t-shirt, cutting off the bottom seam as well.

Now you’ll have a circle. Twist it once into a figure 8 shape.

Then twist it again and then once more for a total of three figure 8 twists.

Now fold it in half with the knot that formed from the twists at the top.

Then pull the ends into a circle, keeping the knot at the front, center.

My favorite way to wear them is to throw your hair into a messy bun and then add the headband. Isn’t it adorable?!

It looks adorable and it keeps your hair off your face.

If you don’t have old t-shirts laying around you could also use jersey fabric for these but you’d have to sew them into a loop. To do this just cut a 6” strip out and sew into a loop to fit your head (after the twists are factored in).

My daughter has the most beautiful hair and I am so envious of her gorgeous locks! She certainly didn’t get them from me! I have notoriously thin, baby fine hair that doesn’t usually do well with this sort of style. To combat that I’ve found that drug free Viviscal dietary supplements really help my hair growth.

Viviscal Extra Strength dietary supplements supply vital nutrients to the hair follicle to prolong the anagen (growing) phase of the hair growth cycle, nourishing thinning hair and promoting hair growth.

Healthy hair starts from within. If your diet lacks specific nutrients, including vitamins, minerals or protein, it can affect the condition and strength of your hair. Viviscal Extra Strength dietary supplements contain the exclusive marine complex AminoMar®, as well as Biotin, Zinc, Vitamin C, Horsetail Extract and Iron, to nourish hair from within. Viviscal Extra Strength has been scientifically proven to nourish thinning hair and promote existing hair growth.*

Viviscal is the #1 selling hair growth supplement in the U.S. You can learn more about Viviscal and it’s benefits on the Viviscal site! Check out these tips for natural hair growth and more on thinning hair.

  2. Janet W. says:

    What a cute and unique idea! I need something like this to help keep my hair out of my face when exercising.

  3. Robin Masshole mommy says:

    That is the cutest thing! I love how it came out.

  4. I have long, thick hair that always gets in my way when I’m trying to do household chores or yardwork. These would come in handy for me!

  5. I have often wondered if this idea would work. I am glad to see that someone actually tried it. I was too chicken. They look great!

    • Ha! Yes, they work! I’ve been wanting to make them forever and once I did I realized they are super easy!

  6. What a cool way to upcycle a tshirt. I want to make one of these for me. I have used Viviscal in the past and even though it takes a few months to really notice results, I definitely could tell a difference in my hair growth.

  7. Brilliant idea! Yes, my son has thick and beautiful hair – like most of my side of the family – I have fine thick hair! – I ‘ll check into Viviscal – I’d never heard of it! Thank you

  8. That is a great way to recycle old t-shirts. My niece would love making them.

  10. This is soooo cute! Also very creative.

  12. Looks cute. Easy to do too.

  13. Oh my goodness…..this is so smart! I have tons of old t-shirts!

  14. Simple at that, huh? My 11 year old daughter would love this, but if I show her the idea I might have to hide all the good shirts as I know she will want one in every color 😉
