My Little Pony Felt Headbands

My Little Pony Headbands
I’m doing a my little pony birthday party for a friend’s daughter. I started off by watching way too many episodes in one day while sketching out these headbands. My Little Pony Felt Headbands Once they were sketched out it was easy and fun to put them together while we watched more episodes of my little pony. To make your own you will need great scissor skills, plenty of felt, tacky glue and elastic. Felt ColorsFelt Colors Shopping List:

My sisters have told me I should have had her hair point downwards instead of up, but either way it’s usually flying in the wind so I think it looks great. Making Felt My Little Pony Headbands When everything is cut out you can paint on any accents, I usually just add a paint stroke to the ears. Then everything can be glued on as well.

For the rest of the friends it’s the same idea. I used some pictures online to compare the ponies to my sketches and to get the colors right. For some of the less obvious ponies I like to add their cutie mark too.
