What You'll Need
  • Brown headband
  • Brown string
  • Brown felt
  • Hot glue gun
How To Make It
  1. Cut two circles of felt approx 5 inches in diameter.

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

  3. Glue the end of one braid to the centre of a felt circle using the 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’ll want the ends of the headband to go behind the ears, while the buns fall over them.
