DIY ~ Glam Cat Ear Headband

Hi lovelies!  I've been meaning to share this DIY for a while.  This is so fun, cute and easy.  Not only that, but it's super fun to wear!  {Click for the how-to!}

You'll need:
  • Wire (I used 18 gauge)
  • Metal headband 
  • Assorted beads
  • Wire clippers, jewelry pliers
  • Cut a piece of wire about 6" long.  Fold it and kind of shape it into a cat ear shape.
  • Repeat for a second one.  Place under the headband, leaving a bit of excess to wrap around the headband to ensure the proper size.  Trim if necessary.
  • Use your jewelry pliers to wrap the outer edge of each ear securely to the headband.  Do it tightly so they don't slide.
  • Get your beads ready!
  • Determine a pattern and thread your beads onto each wire ear.
  • Wrap the wire end securely around the headband with your pliers, making sure it's tight and doesn't slide.
  • Repeat for the other ear.  Done!

Bella loved this headband so much, she insisted I photo her modeling them.  She got a little 'catty' and had fun!

I love how fun and easy these are to make, and they're an adorable, quirky addition to even the simplest hairstyle.  Have fun, play around with different beads and sizes/shapes of the ears.
