Girls love to wear pretty little accessories in their hands or hair, and they look very cute. No doubt, these accessories, whether bracelets or any type of headgear, are too funky and attractive that kids find it hard to resist, but they still are heavy on the pocket. Isn’t it?

Therefore, today we will make a headband from the stuff you can easily get.

Things you need:

  1. Your used simple headband (could be of any colour)

  2. Glitter sheet silver (you can use any colour)

  3. One black paper

  4. A two-inch wide and four-inch long red felt piece

  5. Scissors

  6. Hot glue

  7. A piece of string (not more than three-inches)

  8. Compass (if you don’t have one, use any small bowl)

Directions:

  1. This Minnie Mouse headband is very easy, I used a compass to make

the circles for ears, but you can use any small bowl or cap of a jar, just make sure the total diameter of the ear should not exceed three-inches, in case of compass the size should be 1.5-inches; picture 2

  1. Don’t join the circle from the bottom, leave one inch and bring 1-cm out, this part will be folded on to the headband as shown in picture 3.

  2. Cut circles of the same size from silver glitter sheet, picture 4.

  3. Paste the silver

circles on the black ones, picture 5.

  1. Fold the black part on to the headband and paste it carefully on the respective sides, pictures 6 and 7.

  2. Put the band aside for a while, take the red felt piece and two-fold it, tie it with a string; picture 8.

  3. Tighten the string, to make a bow, picture 9.

  4. Cut the edges in a circular shape, picture 10.

  5. Glue the bow from behind and paste it in the middle of Minnie’s ears, picture 11.

Voila! This cute and easy Minnie Mouse headband is ready! Wear it, amaze your family or friends at gatherings.
