Need a quick idea for a summertime hairstyle? How about just adding a DIY braided headband to your current look?! This will take you all of 10 minutes to make, and it’s so fun to wear!
- 1 Package Darice Accessory Loops (you can also make your own t-shirt yarn)
- Brooch/Pendant or other jewelry embellishment with a pin backing (I used this Styled by Tori Spelling Coral Flower Pendant)
Take three accessory loops and cut them in half so that you have 3 equal strands. If you’re using t-shirt yarn, just start off by cutting 3 pieces of yarn that are 3 feet long each.
Tie a loose knot at one end of the loops, leaving a 3-inch tail of loose strands. Braid the entire length of fabric. If you’re sitting down, hold the ends taut between your knees to make the braiding easier.
When you get to the end, tie another loose knot. Take your braided band, and wrap it around your head twice, so that you know how long you need it to be. Mark that length. Tie a square knot with the fabric’s ends, making sure your knot ends up in the spot you just marked.
Trim off the excess fabric.
Unfasten your pin and carefully pin both pieces together. Do not pierce the fabric all the way through, so that the underside of the brooch isn’t exposed to your skin when you wear the braided headband.
