diy headband for babies or grownups.

It’s really difficult to find cute headbands for babies.

Most of them have these monstrous flowers the size of your babies face and they’re just a bit too intense for my liking.  Even the simple headbands usually only come in rainbow colors – finding a neutral headband is like finding a twinkie during a zombie apocalypse (if you know what I’m talking about, then we should probably be friends).  It’s also difficult to find headbands that don’t squish soft little baby heads, so I’m all about making my own alternatives.

This headband kind of doesn’t even require a tutorial, it’s so simple, but I’m going to share it anyway.

Step 1:  Find an old cotton top.

Step 2:  Cut three long strips of the fabric.

Step 3:  Tie a knot to hold the fabric strips together.

Step 4:  Braid.
Step 5:  Tie on your baby’s cute head and cut the excess off.

This would make a cute adult headband too if you’re into it.
