There was a little girl,

Who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead... Don't get me wrong, I love my summer do but sometimes I have to get my curls off my face.  Cute headbands are an easy fix on mornings when nothing else will do.  Here's a homemade headband that takes less than 15 minutes to put together.  For this project you will need:

- Three 1/2" wide strips of t-shirt approximately 18" in length
- Hot Glue Gun
- Scissors
- 1/4" wide Elastic, or one of these

1) I still have t-shirts leftover from this project so I cut three strips 1/2" wide and 18" long in white, orange and blue.  Stretch and snap the strips to form tubes and then braid together.

2) Cut a piece of elastic to fit your head and hot glue the ends together.  You will have a completed loop when finished gluing.

3) Hot glue the braided fabric to your elastic loop and voila!

Quick, easy and cuter than your average gym/cleaning/bad hair day headband.  Random fact: Growing up my Dad recited that verse to me all the time and I thought he was so clever for coming up with it. In reality Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote the verse, who knew!
