Despite her ‘fits being ritzy and high-end, Blair’s adorable staple accessory – the headband – can be recreated at home on the CHEAP! DIY Expert Julia Grieve tells you how:

  1. Cut off the hem of a shirt, (you won’t need that) fold the t-shirt in half, and cut 5 strips about 2 inches wide. Open the folds and cut open one end of each strip
  2. Stack all five strips on top of each other and attach them together using a needle and thread. Pull each of the strips so that they curl.
  3. Separate the strips and braid the three strips on the left side (as demonstrated in above video). Bring the strip to the middle, and use that as the third strip on the right side.  Continue this all the way down. Always start with the outside strip!
  4. Once it’s fully braided, fit the band around your head.  Attach the two ends and cut off any extra fabric.
  5. Channel your inner Blair!
