What you'll need

How to make it

  1. Princess Leia Headband

    Cut two circles of felt, using the template.

  2. Princess Leia Headband

    Cut 20 pieces of yarn, each 3 feet in length. Divide in half and tie each bundle with a small piece of yarn. Braid both bundles, tying the ends with a second small piece of yarn.

  3. Princess Leia Headband

    Glue the end of one braid to the center of a felt circle using the low-temperature glue gun.

  4. Princess Leia Headband

    Slowly wrap the braid, gluing the inside edge of the braid as you wrap.

  5. Princess Leia Headband

    When you reach the end of the braid, tuck in the loose end and glue to secure.

  6. Princess Leia Headband

    Repeat the process with the second braid and felt circle.

  7. Cut two small strips of felt.

  8. Princess Leia Headband

    Attach each bun to the end of the headband by adding a dab of glue to the felt strips and then attaching these to the felt circles. Do not glue the entire bun to the headband, as you'll want the ends of the headband to go behind the ears, while the buns fall over them.
