I receive emails from time to time from other moms who want to make a similar antler headband but don’t know how. If you are one of them reading this…my apologies for the delay in this post (bad blogger!). I have tried my best to explain how I made it in reply emails, but pictures always help, don’t they? It is really a very simple diy project that only requires minimal materials. I am including a free antler shape template at the end of this post to make it even easier!
Here is what you will need:
Headband (I used one by Goody that I picked up at Walmart. It was soft and flexible.)
Felt (I used off white)
Bit of stuffing
Millinery or fabric flowers (I purchased mine on Etsy)
Begin by printing out the template provided below and cutting out the antlers. Or draw out your own! Trace two of each onto the felt and then cut with sharp scissors. These ones were approximately 3 1/2 to 4″ long.
Next, simply glue each antler to the headband, wrap the two flaps underneath and glue in place. If you want to make larger antlers, you may need to insert thick wire in each antler and wrap it around the headband before gluing the bottom flaps of the felt.
Since Hazel was our “little fawn”, I chose a light brown dress with polka-dots for her to wear to the party. Everyone couldn’t get over how adorable our little “deer” was.
