This year is FLYING by! Soon, St Patrick’s Day will be here, and with it ALL THINGS GREEN!
Since you don’t want to get caught without wearing green on Saint Patty’s Day, I have a super cute DIY fabric headband tutorial for you to make! You can rock this adorable turban like headpiece with pretty much any outfit, casual or otherwise.
I’ve never been someone who gets bedazzled in sparkling shamrocks, so this simple POP of green is perfect for me to show my St Patrick’s Day spirit!
It only takes a few minutes to make this fabric headband from a t shirt, so let’s get started!
Here’s what you’ll need to make this DIY fabric headband with a Celtic Knot
St. Patricks Day inspired DIY Fabric Headband with Celtic Knot
GreenT-Shirt in Kelly Green (old or new, you choose!)
Fabric Shears (or the scissors in your kitchen junk drawer will work, too)
First, begin by laying out the t shirt on a flat surface.
Next, cut 1 inch strips of the t shirt fabric starting directly under the armpit of the shirt. You only need two strips for this headband.
Now, tug firmly on the ends of the strips of t shirt fabric. In the photo below, the top piece has been pulled to stretch. The bottom piece has not. You want to stretch both.
Now, lay one of the strips of fabric in a loop shape. The right side of the fabric should be laying OVER the left, as shown below.
Next, lay your second strip of fabric in a U shape on top of the first loop.
Go ahead and put the RIGHT side of the second strip of t shirt fabric UNDER the right side of the first piece. See below.
Now you’re going to place the LEFT side of the second piece of fabric under the top of the loop of the first piece.
Ok, here’s where things get serious.
You’re going to take the RIGHT side of the second piece of fabric and do an “OVER, UNDER, OVER” at the top of the loop.
So, you’ll go over the top of the loop, then under the second piece of fabric that’s inside the loop, and back over the first piece of fabric. It’s almost like you’re weaving the right side of the second piece through the loop.
That’s basically it! Go ahead and pull all 4 ends of the fabric to tighten your celtic knot. Do this slowly and carefully.
TO turn this into a headband, you’re going to use the scissors to evenly cut all of ends of the fabric. Then, take a scrap piece of fabric and hot glue it around the ends to make a complete circle.
TIP – measure the head of the person that will be wearing this headband first to make sure it’s the correct length.
Now it’s time to ROCK your GREEN!!!
This green headband would look adorable on St. Patrick’s Day! Don’t you think?!
PS – Special thanks to my younger sister for being my headband model!
