♥ Kitty Ears Tutorial


Step One - Gather all your supplies, as pictured above. I would recommend the ribbon to be about 10mm wide, but it's really up to you. I used basic satin ribbon, but you can use pretty much any type. The decorations can also be pretty much anything, not just pearls, but diamantes, flower cabochons, tiny buttons, funky beads, anything you like.

Step 2 - Cut a length of wire about 20cm long. Wrap around your headband where you want the ears to start, as pictured.

Step 3 - After wrapping, bend the wire into a basic kitty ear shape, & then secure at the other end by wrapping it around the headband again.

Step 4 - Repeat on other side.

Step 5 - If your wire is quite thin, you might want to consider repeating the last 2 steps & adding a second layer of wire over the top of your kitty ear, just to strengthen it.

Step 6 - Now cut a length of ribbon, approximately 30 cm or so, & glue the end to the start of the wire. Then wrap around the headband & up onto the "ear" wire, glueing to secure as you go along.

Step 7 - Keep going until you have completely covered all the wire. Repeat for other ear.Remember to keep glueing the ribbon down as you wrap, or it will unravel!

Step 8 - Cut 2 little lengths of ribbon, about 6cm long, & glue over the ends of the headband.

Step 9 - Now gather a long bit of ribbon, around a metre, & glue to the end of your headband. Then start wrapping, covering the entire headband base. Glue the ribbon down as you go.

You should have something that looks like this when you are done!

Step 10 - The fun part! Glue your decorations onto the ear sections. I used 18 pearls & spaced them out along the wire, but you could completely cover them if you wanted. Or alternate diamantes and pearls, etc etc!

Done! Hope that was helpful to some of you, & do ask if there's anything I haven't made clear!
