DIY: Easy No Sew/Glue Turban Headband


 

 I am in love with turban headbands.  I don't care what anyone says, I seriously think you can wear them year round!  It really is a great accessory to complete your look.  They are really easy to make and there is no sewing or gluing involved.  Here I am going to show you how to make an Aztec Print turban headband.  I really wanted to record a tutorial video but I still don't have a tripod and there was no one to hold the camera for me.  I feel confident that you should be able to still make a turban headband based off of my pictures though.


Steps
 
1.) Take a tshirt that you do not need.  I used an old Aztec print tshirt that I do not wear anymore.

2.) Cut two strips through the shirt.

 3.) You should get two strips like this.

4.)  Cross two strips together like the picture above. I have label the top and bottom of each strip to make it easier for the next steps.

5.) Cross B over to the left and lay it ontop of D.

6.) Next, cross C over to the top and lay it on top of A.

7.) Bring A&C down so that they are similar to the picture above. 

8.) Put your hands through A and grab C and pull it to through A.

9.) So now C is laying flat in between A. It should look like the picture above. Do the same thing to the other side.

10.)  After doing other other side it should look like this.

11.) Take the left side and cross it over like the picture above.

12.) Put your hand through A&C and pull up to put your hand through B&D

13.) So,now your hand is holding four layers of a circular turban.

14.) You are done now! After you put it on, you can fix the fabric so that the inner side isn't showing.

After a few practices, you will be able to make these turban headbands very quickly.  I have already made a few for me and my cousins. The latest one I made was all black with studs on it.  Have fun with this DIY and let me know if you have any questions.  I know I said I was going to blog more and I'm going to try my best but next month will be a hectic month for me.  Every weekend I am book with weddings, bachelorette parties, or birthdays!  Oh, and I have been on a chevron craze lately so that should give you a clue on what my next DIY will be ;)
