Tips and Tricks for Successful DIY Tie Dye

Start with four (4) 1” x 6” x 8’ cedar decking planks. Use a miter saw to cut them into eight pieces 1” x 4” x 36”.

Step 1

Use a router and a ½” rabbeting router bit to remove ½ of the thickness on one long edge of each plank. You can see how the rabbet joint edges should look in the image above.

1. Braided DIY Headband

After you glue each side, use the bar clamps to keep them together. Let them dry overnight.

2. Knotted DIY Tie Headbands

You’ll now be working with the three 1” x 4” x 8’ cedar decking planks. Use a miter saw to cut six (6) 1” x 4” x 36” planks (you’ll have wood leftover).

3. Twisted DIY Headband

Drill pilot holes. You’ll use a drill and a 7/64” drill bit along with a 3/8″ countersink drill bit to countersink each pilot hole. You don’t have to countersink each hole since the screws are going to be on the inside but Steve likes his work clean.
