When I was at the new Oogie Boogie Bash at Disneyland last month, I got to meet Maleficent and she was glorious!
I’m usually not one for Disney villains, but I was seriously in awe of her entire demeanor. She made a few snide comments about my outfit that caught me off guard and (cracked me up!)
In that moment, she became my new favorite Disney villain!
So to celebrate meeting her, I’m sharing this fabulous Maleficent headband DIY tutorial.
How to Make a DIY Maleficent Headband
Just in time to celebrate the release of the movie Maleficent 2: Mistress of Evil and a fun dress-up item for kids (and adults) of ALL ages!
MATERIALS NEEDED FOR YOUR MALEFICENT HEADBAND:
- Craft Felt Sheets – Black, Orchid and Neon Green
- Headband – Black, Wide
- Rhinestones – Bright Green
- Permanent Marker – Fine Tip
- Stabilo Aquarellable Pencil – White
- Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
DIY Disney Maleficent Headband Instructions:
Download, print and cut out PATTERNS. Lay headband over top of paper pattern and trace the arch to match.
Trace two Maleficent horn patterns onto the sheet of black craft felt with white chalk pencil and then cut out.
TIP: Cut all patterns out inside the traced lines to create a clean finished project.
Starting at the top point of both horns, carefully attach two patterns together, leaving a 2” section open at the base.
Attach the base of the horn pattern to the front and then to the back of the headband with glue gun.
Here is a detail of the gluing process.
Carefully attach the right and then the left sides of the horn pattern to the top edge of the headband with the glue gun.
Trace and cut out Maleficent bow patterns from orchid and neon green craft felt sheet.
To create bow, attach right and left ends of orchid felt shape to center and then secure with the glue gun. Adhere neon green bow tails to bottom of bow with glue gun.
Flip bow over and attach one large and several small bright green rhinestones to center in a circular pattern.
To finish, attach bow to headband with the glue gun.
This quick and easy Maleficent Felt Headband is a great project to create with tween and teen girls in just about 30 minutes.
