How To Make It
  • 1

    Cut two circles of felt, using the <a href="/sites/default/files/leia-headband-craft-template-0411.pdf" target="_blank">template</a>.

    Cut 20 pieces of yarn, each 3 feet in length. Divide in half and tie each bundle with a small piece of yarn. Braid both bundles, tying the ends with a second small piece of yarn.

  • 3

    Glue the end of one braid to the center of a felt circle using the low-temperature glue gun.

  • 4

    Slowly wrap the braid, gluing the inside edge of the braid as you wrap.

  • 5

    When you reach the end of the braid, tuck in the loose end and glue to secure.

  • 6

    Repeat the process with the second braid and felt circle.

  • 7

    Cut two small strips of felt.

  • 8

    Attach each bun to the end of the headband by adding a dab of glue to the felt strips and then attaching these to the felt circles. Do not glue the entire bun to the headband, as you&#39;ll want the ends of the headband to go behind the ears, while the buns fall over them.
