DIY Cat Ear Headband

DIY Cat Ear Headband

A few days ago I made this inspirational post on the cute and popular cat ear headband.Today, I’m going to show you how to make your own!



- Metal Headband
- Wire (The thicker the better. I used 21 Gauge)
- Rhinestones
- Glue
- Pliers/ Wire cutter
- Gold Spraypaint (if your headband doesn’t match the wire)

DIY-Cat-Ear-Headband1. Cut two pieces of wire to approximately 7 inches in length. (Longer or shorter depending on how big/small you want the ears.) Bend the wire in half to form a triangular shape.

Position the other end of the wire on the opposite side of the headband. (This will help the wire ear from falling over to one side.) Bend the wire and tighten. Repeat for the second ear.
