All you need for this adorable bug headband is a paper bag and pipe cleaners!
If you’ve been following along lately, you’ll know we’re all about paper bags and hats here at the moment. We’ve used paper bags to make a gorgeous fairy tiara and an enchanting mermaid crown, so it made perfect sense to pull out a paper bag for this one too.
What you’ll need:
- paper bag
- pipe cleaners
How to make your bug headbands:
Cut a 1 to 1.5 inch wide, single strip from a paper bag.
Wrap the strip around your child’s head, and mark where the two ends join.
With some tape, join the two ends at the mark, and cut off any excess. This will be the back of your headband.
Curl the pipe cleaners around your finger to shape the antennae.
This would be an inexpensive and easy addition to a halloween costume too!
