Skill level:

Things you need

  • 2 pipe cleaners
  • Felt
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue gun
  • Plain plastic headband
  • Large craft pom poms

  1. 1

    Measure the length of the pipe cleaners.

  2. 2

    Measure and cut two pieces of felt 2 inches wide and as long as the pipe cleaner.

  3. 3

    Run a line of hot glue along one of the long edges of one of the pieces of felt. Place one of the pipe cleaners in the line of hot glue. Roll the pipe cleaner up in the felt and glue the other long edge to hold the rolled up felt. Repeat with the other pipe cleaner and piece of felt.

  4. 4

    Attach a large craft pom to the end of each antennae with hot glue.

  5. 5

    Attach the non-pom pom end of the two antennae to the top of the head band using hot glue. Attach the antennae so each one is an inch out from the centre of the headband. Curl the ends of the antennae.
