5 Strand Braided Headband Tutorial

By Dana Fox

Ever have one of those days where you just can’t seem to get anything finished? That is my today. It’s been one thing after another all day long and I am just finally getting to complete this post. This is my second last festival style collab with LuLu*s and I hope you like it! Originally, I wanted to make this headband a belt, but it turned out a little too short. Actually if I’m being completely honest here, this wasn’t even what I had planned for today, but it works. My original project is having some difficulties, so hopefully I can bring that to you next week instead if all ends up working out. Anyways, here is my latest festival look, and a fun five-strand braided headband DIY at the end!

Sometimes the best accessories are quick, easy, and made from recycled materials! This headband was made from an old t-shirt and a strand of lace! Anybody can do it and here’s how:

DIY BRAIDED HEADBAND:

1. Start with 5 two inch strips of an old t-shirt. Pull on each piece to stretch it out and make it curl. Join a strand of lace to the first t-shirt strip.

2. Secure the pieces together with glue or sew them. Tape to a table and start braiding as shown in the photos above! When you’re done, just sew or glue the ends together again. Tie around your head, or create a longer one for your waist!
