DIY No-Sew Headband:

1.  Get a pair of old newborn tights… or buy some cheap new ones. I got some little ones on sale for $1.99 at Macy’s.

2. Cut right below the waist band to get rid of the thick waistband area.

3. Tie the legs into a knot. It hides the excess fabric and this little knot will go at the base of the baby’s neck

4. Wrap around baby’s head and tie the feet of the tights into a bow on top of her head.
