This is a great beginner project for beginners. My grand children would enjoy making these t-shirt headbands. Right now, I have to admit they are all pretty active and are staying in shape by just being kids. Incorporating regualr exercise is not such a bad thing to do and having them make these to wear while working out may keep them in the spirit of exercise.

This patriotic upcycled DIY t-shirt headband is a wonderful idea. I seem to have missed having it ready for the 4th of July of 2017, but with other color t-shirts, I can have it to match my outfits. This is one great way to reuse a t-shirt instead of tossing it.

I always like making upcycled projects around the holidays. Summertime is the perfect time for fun t-shirt headbands like these. I usually just braid several lengths of yarn together whenever I make mine, but the coolest thing about using old t-shirts is often the fun and funky prints and designs you end up with. I like to use my kid's old clothes that can't be passed down anymore, but thinner, lighter baby blankets work pretty well, too. Just depends on what type of material I want to use.
