2. Stretchy Headband
Have short hair or trouble keeping a headband on? Then make a headband using an elastic hair tie and knit scraps from a T-shirt or dress project. Using a light- to medium-weight knit will make a perfect headband that will be more formfitting and therefore more likely to stay in place! Plus, the stretchy headband has a fun, stylish look created by the faux knot at the top of the headband.
