Throwback Thursday: DIY Hello Kitty Headband
September 11, 2014
Two years ago, Munchkin #1 had a Hello Kitty themed 5th birthday party. I was in charge of invitations (as always), plus I made a birthday banner, other decorations, and Hello Kitty headbands for the guests to wear.

Headbands (Dollar Tree)
White yarn or ribbon (not needed if headbands are white)
Craft Felt - Black, White, and other colors as you choose
3 Hello Kitty pictures for template -sized for headbands
Wrap headbands in white yarn, adhering with hot glue. Glue the ends securely, and randomly as you wrap.

Take one of your Hello Kitty pictures and fold at the bottom of the ears. Only cut the ears out to use as a template for cutting the white felt ears with. Cut the bow from the second picture for a template to cut the black felt background of the bow. Cut the bow color sections from the third picture for the color part of the bows.
|The templates for the felt pieces.|
Cut all felt pieces. I marked the paper templates as left ear, right ear, etc. so I would know where the felt pieces were supposed to go.
Glue the color pieces of the bow onto the black bow base.

Glue the ears on, by placing the headband between the ear "flap" pieces. I placed hot glue on the main ear section and pressed them together. Then I put a spot of glue on the headband and pressed the ear flaps towards the headband to prevent the ears from moving.

Hot glue a bow onto the left ear (on your right).
