Now, on with the tutorial! Remember my seriously awesome Halloween costumes? Today's tutorial will teach you how to make your very own Naruto headband!
They turned out pretty well, if I do say so myself. It was difficult to find something to mimic the metal of the headbands that still was able to wrap around the head comfortably. After much searching, I finally found something that worked really well!
- Blue knit fabric (cutting up an old t shirt would work perfectly here)
- A roll of shiny organza (I found this in the $2.50 bin at Joann, there were tons of colors!)
- Silver brads (look in the scrapbooking section of your local craft store)
- Hot glue
- Wire cutters
- Fray check ( if any of your materials will fray)
- Black permanent marker
Got it all?
After I had my "metal," I used a black sharpie to draw the leaf symbol on each. (First I drew with pencil on a sheet of paper until I liked it, then I placed the organza on top and because the material is so thin, I was able to trace over my template right onto my organza.)
