Easy DIY Wonder Woman Headband and Wrist Cuffs using Felt

Hello everybody!

I hope you guys are well.

Since Halloween is just around the corner here’s a quick DIY costume accessories idea for Wonder Woman.

20161026_143526I made these headpieces and wrist cuffs for my daughters who wanted something simple to wear on Superhero day at their school. They wore a plain blue shirt and jeans so the accessories would pop out more.  They didn’t want to do the typical cape and mask thing so I found a good template online for Wonder Woman’s headband and got to work.

Using the template to get the design, I folded the felt in half to make it sturdier with two layers of felt as oppose to just a single layer.  I glued the headpiece at the edges with some tacky glue and then made the stars with a template and red felt.  I then glued the headpiece onto the plain headband.  The tacky glue doesn’t dry instantly so I used large paperclips to secure the felt onto the headband until it dried.  It worked like a charm.  For the wrist cuffs I simply cut out a long rectangular piece from the yellow felt and split it in half.  I then glued the stars in the middle and sewed on a small piece of elastic so they could slide it onto their wrist and have fun pretending to be Wonder Woman, which they did.  

I hope you like this idea!

Take good care all.

Until next time…
