DIY Veiled Cat Ear Headband- forget the furry ears and try something new!
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.
DIY Veiled Cat Ear Headband
|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 ½ 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.|
