Get this template for the first 4 DIY projects on Pinterest

What you Need

  • Printable template (see above).
  • Lightweight card stock that is bendable but not overly stiff.
  • Scissors for template cutout.
  • Crayons or markers (gold or other colors).
  • Glitter (red).
  • White craft glue/glue stick.
  • Stapler/staples.
  • If needed, brads for fastening.

How to Create

  1. Print out the template pieces on lighter weight card stock or regular printer paper.
  2. The printable pieces can also be cut out from regular paper and glued to card stock with a glue stick, which will create a sturdier headband.
  3. Once the template pieces are cut out, color the two headband pieces in any choice of crayons or marker colors. The older Wonder Woman headband/tiaras were gold with the red star in the center.
  4. Use glitter to highlight the center star area. Spread the glue over the star and apply the glitter. Shake off any excess glitter and allow the area to dry.
  5. Once dried, attach the second cutout headband extension piece to the front piece with staples or brads at the indicated red marks on the cutout.

What you Need

  • Printable template (see above).
  • Scissors or rotary cutter.
  • Colorful fabric scraps.
  • Small piece red felt.
  • Sewing Machine.
  • Matching thread.
  • Iron on interfacing material.
  • Fusible web.
  • Pinking shears.
  • Star shape template or cookie cutter.
  • Velcro closure strips – approximately 3 inches +.
  • Knitting needle.
  • Iron.

How to Create

  1. Print out the template.
  2. Cut out the template (it is one-half of the template). An additional quarter inch seam allowance has been allowed with the template.
  3. Take the chosen fabric scraps, place the template on the fold, with the pointed edge of the template directly on the fold of the material and then go around the template and cut.
  4. Cut out two pieces from the template. If the material is lightweight, think about using iron-on interfacing to give the fabric more body and stiffness.
  5. Once the interfacing has been ironed in, put the two fabric pieces together with their right sides facing one another.
  6. Sew around the pieces using a seam allowance of a quarter inch and leave a small opening at the bottom of the band to be able to later turn the fabric to its right side.
  7. Once sewn, use pinking shears or scissors to cut along the curves of the material and clip all the corners so the headband is easy to turn to the right side of the fabric.
  8. Turn the headband to the other side from the small opening at the bottom of the headband and use a knitting needle or similar tool to flatten out the corners.
  9. Iron around all the seams until the headband is neat and flat and then top stitch all around the headband close to its edge.
  10. Use fusible web to iron on the red felt piece and cut out a star shape from a template or cookie cutter.
  11. Remove the backing from the fusible web and position the red felt star in the middle and iron the star in place. Then top stitch around the star.
  12. Add Velcro strips (a little over 3 inches) to the ends of the headband, and sew them in place so they match up perfectly for closure.
