This easy idea doesn’t need to be just for your dog; you or your kids can wear them too!

Supplies Needed

  • Headband, preferably covered for comfort
  • Felt for if your headband needs to be covered
  • Glitter glue
  • Pipe cleaners

Step-By-Step Instructions

Firstly, if your headband is not covered, we need to cover it so it’s comfy to wear.

  • Cut your felt to fit the headband.
  • Glue it on snugly.
  • Allow it to dry.

To Create The Antlers

  • Put 2 pipe cleaners together, one of each color, or your choice.
  • Twist them together from the middle to one side; wind them around until you get to the end.
  • Do the same on the other side.
  • It should look like a single candy cane.
  • Repeat this with another set of 2 pipe cleaners.

To Put The Antlers Together

  • Place the headband over one of the sets of pipe cleaners and fold it over slightly off center.
  • Then twist the pipe cleaner antler three times to anchor it.
  • Place the other pipe cleaner set on the opposite side of the headband and use the same method to attach it.
  • Bend each of the antlers in squarish shapes to get a bit of a wacky effect.

To Decorate

  • Squirt some glitter glue in swirly lines on the front of the headband between the antlers.
  • Wait until the glue is well and truly dry before placing the antlers on anybody’s head.
