DIY Glittery Stars Headband

DIY Glittery Stars Headband

Okay so this is a little late, but still applicable for any little girls who love glitter and playing dress-up. My youngest also has her third birthday coming up on Monday, so this would be perfect as a birthday crown.

Every New Year’s Eve, the girls and I make decorate hats to wear to our annual family dinner. This year, we were all so busy that I didn’t get a chance to make the headbands until LITERALLY 30 minutes before we left for dinner! Even though it was a rush job, they turned out just as I envisioned and were probably my favorite DIY headwear to date! As with most of my DIY projects, you don’t need many supplies. Keep reading to see how I did it!

Materials:

Directions:

  1. Remove tiara or attachment from the foil headbands so all you have is the headband part.
  2. Fold your card stock in half lengthwise and draw medium to small stars down one side.

  3. Cut out the stars so you end up with a pair of stars with each cut.
  4. Now you’re going to glue the stars onto the pip cleaners. Grab two sets of stars for each pipe cleaner. Apply glue to the non-glitter side of one star, lay the pipe cleaner in the middle of the star, and then place the non-glitter side of the matching star on top. Repeat 3 times with the other set of stars so you get a column of two stars on each pipe cleaner.

  5. To attach your stars to the headband, simply wind the end of your pipe cleaner a few times so that the stars are pretty close to the headband. Since the pipe cleaners are not as rigid as a heavy craft wire, you don’t want your stars to stick up too high. They’ll just flop over.
  6. Attach all 3 pipe cleaners to your headband and then you’re ready to wear!
