Some Tips and Lessons Learned re: Making a  Costume Headband

If you're making cat ears or something small and light, you don't need wires or pipecleaners inside. They are light enough that you can just glue them to your headband. You also can use a thinner headband for this type of project.

If you are making bunny ears or something taller and heavier, you need to use wire or pipecleaners. Also, don't make your ears too tall because they will tip over and cause the headband to fall off your head! It is essential for this type of project to use a thicker wider headband. This will help support the weight.

Halloween is our favourite holiday because we get to dress up. Keep in mind, you can always modify these  costume headband designs to work for Christmas, Easter or other holidays! Think reindeer antlers or Easter bunny ears! Hope you have fun felting!
