cz craftvideo Bike Tube Headband

Upcycled accessories are fun and easy to make. Watch and learn how to make your own chain-link headband from a busted bicycle inner tube in this week’s CRAFT Video! I got this project idea from Britt McMaster, who showed us how to make a chain-link necklace from white leather over on her blog, You can download her template for the figure-8 shape to make your own recycled chain-link accessories. You can get broken bike tubes from changing your own when they get punctured, or by asking for them at your local bike shop.
