My sister, Adena, has come up with yet another inexpensive, trendy and fun DIY headband project. This one is inspired by the golden age of Hollywood with a rocker chic twist. Below, you can learn how to make a turban-inspired headband of your own:

MATERIALS: Any piece of clothing or material you don’t mind cutting up, scissors, a ruler, a permanent marker, a needle and thread and studs.
STEPS: 1.) Begin by measuring the bottom of your t-shirt or piece of material with your ruler vertically–three inches up. Make sure to use your permanent marker to mark off your measurement. 2.) Next, cut horizontally across your shirt. Once you have cut the shirt you will have a circular connected piece of fabric. Now with one more cut, you will now have one long piece of fabric. (Repeat this step– so that you end up with two separate strands of fabric) 3.) Fold the fabric in half hotdog style and lay the fabric (seam sides up) in the shape of an “X.” 4.) Fold the fabrics over one another so that they are linked together.
5.) Sew down the long side of the raw edges of your material. You will end up with four “tubes.” 6) Next, it’s time to add studs to your headband. Push the prongs of each stud through the fabric and once they’ve gone through, bend them down so they are now lying flat. This will help the studs stay secure. 7.) I put 4 studs on each “tube,” but feel free to place as many as you want depending on the look you are going for. 8.) Place the headband on your head and tie it using the extra fabric behind your head.
Wear your turban-inspired headband as a statement accessory.
