{Anthropologie Knockoff} Multitude Headbands

I was browsing around Anthropologie’s website last night and came across these elastic multitude headbands that are $15.00 for a 4 pack.  From the reviews on the site it sounds like people love them.  Here’s the thing…these are the EASIEST headbands to make!!
The elastic is called Fold Over Elastic.  You can buy it at Joann’s, Hobby Lobby, Etsy or wherever you buy fabric or sewing supplies.  There is some adorable designs on sale at Joann’s this week for $5.24 for 4 yards.  I purchased mine from Pick Your Plum. With 4 yards of fold over elastic, you can make 7-8 headbands and only pay $5.24…talk about a huge savings!!!
Cut the elastic into 18-19 inch lengths depending on how tight you want the headband and the size of the person you are making the head band for.  You can also measure using a headband you already have or just loop the elastic around the wearer’s head to measure.
Then, tie a knot with the 2 ends.  Easy peasy!
These headbands are great for little kids too because they are so soft that they can keep their hair back without bothering them.  So, clip out a 40% off coupon, stop by the fabric store and save yourself some money!
What is your favorite headband?

    Very cute, plue great idea & knockoff! I love my (overpriced) wide lulu headbands for yoga. And I have some pretty handmade ribbon headbands lined with velvet that a friend gave me. The velvet really grips onto hair well!

    I love this idea! I went to yoga today and saw similar headbands (also wildly expensive!). I was thinking I’d shop around for cheaper ones, but now I can make my own! And lots of them to match my yoga outfits! (Why I need to match an exercise outfit, I’m not sure, but if I can, why not?!)

      I know a couple sites that sell $1 a yard or 2 yards of 3 colors for $2.75 an these are great! Also the $1 store carries already made ones! 5 for $1! How’s great is that? I’m a crafter an do headbands, hairbows ect an why pay $15 for just elastic? It’s crazy! Love how you put this up hun!
