  • How to make a horn. Halloween Horns - Step 1
    Step 1

    To determine what size to cut your material for your headband you’ll need to take a few measurements. First, measure the headband width (if the headband is wider at one point, use this measurement). Add 3/4″ to width size. Additionally, measure the headband length, adding 1″ to measurement. Use these measurements to make a headband covering piece and cut from your material.

    Step 3

    Cut 4 horn or shapes from fabric scraps (make sure that two are in reverse).
    TIP: If you want your ears\horns to easily stand upright, it is best not to make them too tall. The horns in the photo above are approximately 2" wide by 3 1/2" tall.

    Make the horn or ear pieces by sewing 2 sections, right sides together. Clip curves and turn right side out. Stuff firmly with fiberfill leaving 1/4″ of the bottom edge free. Baste raw edges together. Repeat for second ear or horn.

    Fold long edges of Headband Covering piece so that finished edges are even. Press in place. Next, determine the center of the headband – crease this measurement by pressing with iron. Open up Headband Covering piece so that wrong side is up. From the center crease measure down 1 1/2″. Place edge of horn section next to this measurement so that basting is even with the creased edge and pin in place. Repeat this step for the second side. (Note: These measurements can be adjusted so that the ears or horns are closer together or further apart depending on your liking). Again, fold up finished edges of Headband Covering so that finished edges are even – however this time, pin them in place.

    Sew close to finished edges and across ears\horns. It may be helpful to switch your machine foot to a zipper foot when sewing across the ear or horns. Slide your finished Headband Covering across purchased headband until horns\ears are centered. (Note: Stitching and horns should be centered across the top of the headband)
