DIY Cat Ears Headband

My daughter had a cat-themed birthday party and I wanted to give each guest cat ears however to buy them on Amazon it was like $4 each.  I wanted something much cheaper so I made the myself.
You need:
  • Headbands (I bought mine at the Dollar Tree in a three pack)
  • Felt (in the colors you want the ears to be)
  • Hot glue gun

First I folded a piece of paper in half and drew the shape of the ears that I wanted.  You can do whatever size you want.  I cut out the shape and unfolded it.  Then I traced it onto the color of felt that I wanted the ear to be. 

After the felt is cut wrap it around the headband. and use hot glue to attach the two sides together.  Do this for both ears.

Next I took a piece of paper and figured out how big I wanted the inner part of the ear.  I traced that onto felt and cut it out.

I then glued the inner part of the ear to the ears.

I used various colors of felt for the ears but I used the light pink felt for the inner pat of all the ears.
