DIY Birthday Cake Headband

Turn a plain headband into a festive birthday cake headband.

What You Need
Plain headband, scissors, orange marker, ribbon and tulle of varying colors, toilet paper roll, tape, white paper, regular and hot glue

What You Do
• Cut the toilet paper roll down to the height you want the “cake” to be.
• Cut strips of ribbon and glue them around the toilet paper roll.
• Use the remnant piece of the roll to cut strips for candles. Glue white paper over them and color the flame in with the orange marker. Glue/tape them to the top inside of the roll facing out.
• Cut strips of tulle and glue/tape them into the inside bottom of the roll to hang out.
• Carefully (parents) hot glue the roll onto the headband.
