Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.
In this article, I'll share with you all the bandana craft sites that I found in my Google search that include a large picture of the craft and the instructions for making the craft. When I started my search, it didn't look like there were many projects shown in the Google images that included the instructions: Most seemed to be sites selling the finished product. But, as one site led me to another, I found that there are more than first meets the eye.
All the bandana crafts that you'll find here include the site address that will take you to the instructions.
To make the centerpiece shown above, find the instructions at Dollar Store Crafts. These are nice for when you need a large number of centerpieces.
