While I made these for Halloween, it is a completely acceptable holiday project!
- Measuring tape
- White fluffy felt
- Sparkly beads and/or sequins
- Sewing machine
- Measure the length of the headband and add an inch on each side. Mine was 15.” Cut out a rectangular piece of felt to fit over the headband. I cut mine about 2″ wide.
- Sew the rectangle piece into a tube and slide it over your headband. To make it more comfortable you can add some stuffing inside this part too.
- Cut out four felt circles, of any diameter you want. I made mine 5″ because I used a 3/5″ seam allowance and wanted them big and fluffy.
- On two of the circles, you will sew on your beading. Any design you want. I added dangling pieces to mine. It would probably be best if you mapped out a beading pattern before hand, but I just free-handed one circle and replicated it on the other.
- Put two circles right sides together and sew almost all the way around. Repeat with the other two circles.
- Flip the circles right side out and stuff them. Then using your needle and thread, close the gap.
- Hand sew (I used a combination of running stitches and whip stitches) the muffs to the 1″ inch sections on the end of the headband covering. Make sure the muffs are secured nicely.
- Then, slap them on your head and you’re done!
