Make a hot pink beaded mouse ear headband with a super glitzy bow!

Hey guys, this is a bit of an odd Crafter To The Stars as our star pulled out, but we loved the way this headband ended up and wanted to share the tutorial with you anyway.

"Thank you so much! Can't wait to put 'em on my noggin!"


You may remember that we promised Gala Darling would be our next star back in August, but sadly she stopped responding after receiving the headband, so we don't have any photos of her modelling it or her interview answers to bring you. We bet she looks great in them and you can always check out our old interview with her in Snippets.

P.S. we'd love to see how these look on, so if you make a pair, make sure to share your version and we'll add your photos to the top!

Instructions

  1. Step 1 1

    Gather your headband, beads and some wire. We're going to use a double banded headband for this but it would look just as good with a single one, if that's all you have.

  2. Step 2 2

    Secure the wire on to the headband by looping it around the end a couple of times.

  3. Step 3 3

    Lay your beads along the headband and tie them in place by wrapping the wire between each of the beads.

  4. Step 4 4

    Keep going until you've reached the other side of the headband, cut off the excess beads and wrap the wire around a couple of times before snipping it off.

  5. Step 5 5

    Begin wrapping a second strand of beads along the other band, using the same technique.

  6. Step 6 6

    As you approach the top of the headband, stop wrapping the wire around the headband.

  7. Step 7 7

    Continue to wrap the wire around the beads as you begin to form the first ear.

  8. Step 8 8

    Use a mug or another circular item to create the shape for the ears.

  9. Step 9 9

    Reattach the wire to the headband and continue wrapping the beads along the middle.

  10. Step 10 10

    Repeat the same process to make a second ear at the other side of the headband.

  11. Step 11 11

    Pick some pink lace which matches your ears and cut a square to fit behind them.




  12. Step 12 12

    Stitch the lace to the wire using pink thread.

  13. Step 13 13

    Trim off the excess lace.

  14. Step 14 14

    Pick some sparkly material to make a bow.

  15. Step 15 15

    Cut two large rectangles in the size you'd like your bow and another two small strips. Pin together around the edges.

  16. Step 16 16

    Stitch around the outlines of your rectangles with a sewing machine, leaving a small gap so you can turn them inside out.

  17. Step 17 17

    Turn the rectangles inside out and fill the large rectangle with stuffing before stitching the opening closed.

  18. Step 18 18

    Wrap the small strip around the center of the rectangle to make a bow and stitch in place.

  19. Step 19 19

    Stitch the bow on to the center of the ears.

  20. Step 20 20

    Finish by wrapping and glueing pink ribbon around the tips of the headband to stop any loose wires from scratching you.
