Recycled Tee Shirt Beaded Headbands
These Recycled Tee Shirt Beaded Headbands are a quick and easy way to give a second life to old tee shirts and make coordinated headbands for every outfit.
Old Tee Shirts
Gather your old t-shirts and cut off the sleeves.
Trim the sleeves into strips anywhere from half an inch to two inches wide. Be sure to snip the loop of the sleeve so that it is one long strip.
String on pony beads, Obviously it will be harder to string them on the wider strips of t-shirt but the effect in the end is well worth the trouble.
Center your beads-tie them in place if you need to, size your headband to fit, and there you have it!
