Craft a fun fluffy monster eyes headband to wear trick or treating. Great for kids and adults! An easy DIY costume that is perfect for Halloween.
It is almost Halloween! What? You don’t have a costume yet? That’s okay, you still have time to make a totally fun and unique costume… or at least headband. 🙂
This Fluffy Monster Eyes Handbands is so cute and comes together really pretty quickly.
Supplies Used: Some links may be for similar items
- 2 – 2 1/2-inch FloraCraft Make It: Fun® Foam Balls
- Feather Boa
- 2 Feather picks
- White Felt
- Black Felt
- Glitter Fabric Paint
- Floral Pins
- Wood Skewer
Start with the black and white felt. Cut two 2 1/2-inch circles out of the white, and two 1-inch circles out of the black. With a hot glue gun glue the black circle on top the white circle. With the Glitter Fabric paint, outline the black pupils. Layer both eyes and let the fabric paint dry.
When dry, glue the felt eyes to the foam balls.
I have never used floral pins before, but they are awesome!. They are like double pins with a bridge in the center that will hold down your material. Begin wrapping the feather boa around the eye by securing one end of the boa to the foam ball with a floral pin.
As you continue to wrap the boa around the eye, add more floral pins as needed to keep the boa secure and in place.
To put the eyeballs together break a skewer stick so it is about 3 – 3 1/2 inches long. Insert the skewer between the eyes and secure by adding a dab of hot glue on both ends.
AHHHHHH! So cute… but wait!
For my headband, I used one that my girls already had. You could also use the elastic type of headband.
Attach the eyes to the headband with floral pins. If you want to make sure it stays nice and securely add a dab of hot glue to each pin end of the floral pins.
And that’s it! I think these Fluffy Monster Eyes are super cute, but you could also make them scary by using a black feather boa and red and black eyes. You could even make this a one-eyed or three-eyed monster! It’s your choice!
