Dress up is a daily event in our house--we have the princess dresses, the pirate swords, and the cowboy hats. I always like to throw new characters into the mix and listen as the kids improvise their new roles. This felt headband is fun to make and definitely one of my personal favorites.

What You'll Need

  • felt - (brown, orange, red, yellow, tan)
  • scissors
  • string - (twine, yarn, string--all will work)

How We Did It

Felt Native American Headband

Gather your materials.

Cut different colors of felt into feather shapes so your children can pick and choose which ones they want. (We cut the felt for our young kids since it was a little tricky. Older kids can definitely do this step on their own!)

Cut the brown felt into two strips. (This will be your headband.)

Now let your kids pick out their feathers and glue them to one of the brown strips.

Once they are done decorating their headbands, make two holes on each end of the brown strips. We used a hole puncher, and helped the kids push reeeeaaaaalllly hard.

Tie the two brown strips together with some sort of string. (This is my favorite thing about this craft- the side tie just adds so much character.)

For extra oomph, add an accent color of felt to the actual band and glue on. Let the glue dry for a few hours before trying to wear the headband.

My son thought his headband was really cool--especially since most dress up items we have are for his little sister (we have collected a lot of dresses lately!). It was a nice change of pace for him to have a new addition to the dress-up box.
