I really wanted to make headbands with white Hello Kitty ears and a big Red Bow for the girls to wear at Lacey's 5th Birthday. So, the only thing I had a hard time finding was thin all white headbands.
I found 4 packs of colored headbands at the dollar store for... well $1. So, I bought three packs of 4 ($4), one can of white spray paint ($3) and then a few sheets of Red and White felt from JoAnn's.
I spray painted the headbands white and let them dry over night.
The next day, after they were no longer sticky, I started working on the ears and bow.
Here you go, step by step:
- Cut out rectangles and strips from the red felt.
- Glued all the way around so the rectangle was closed.
- Pinch the center.
- Hot glue the center of the pinch.
- Wrap the strip around the center.
- Glue the overlap in the back.
- Trim the excess.
The ears were easy. I didn't use a template, just cut a sharp edged oval and cut out a bunch of them. Then I folded the ear over the headband and hot glued all the way around.
So, super easy and affordable!
