DIY Veiled Cat Ear Headband- forget the furry ears and try something new!

DIY Veiled Cat Ear Headband

Halloween is fast approaching and I have a bunch of costume DIYs lined up! This veiled cat headband is a chic alternative to the tradition faux fur ears. Pair it with a black dress for a sexy yet low-maintenance(!) costume.

Satin wrapped headband
Black pipe cleaners
Lace (non-stretch with scallop edge)
Needle & thread

Twist the end of the pipe cleaner around the middle of the headband.
Bend the pipe cleaner over and twist the other end on to the headband
Repeat on the other side
Bend the tips into points.
Cut a piece of lace a few inches larger than the ear.
Sew the lace on to the pipe cleaner.
Trim the lace around the ear, leaving a 1/2 inch border.
Repeat with the other ear
The headband needs to be stretched open to sew the veil on, otherwise the veil will be too tight once it is on your head. Use a bottle that’s approximately 6 inches high
Fold the lace in half and cut the veil out with the scallop side down. It should measure 9 inches high and 15 inches wide. Trim the (non- folded corner) into a curve.

Run the thread through the veil in a loose stitch so you can gather it
Pull the thread to gather the lace
Stitch the veil on to the headband.
