Monster Eye Headband

Download Activity Guide

Wobble your way around the neighbourhood with these adorably creepy monster eyes! Simple to make and fun to wear! They could be your whole costume or just a part of it. Be careful who you scare though!

Search Terms: Halloween, alien, dress up, costume, trick or treat, head band.

  • To create your monsters eyes, use 3 decofoam balls. We pushed them onto wooden skewers to make the painting process simpler.
  • Step 1Paint the decofoam balls with bright colours. Allow to dry.
  • Step 2Cut out a strip of green felt 42cm long and 4cm wide. You may need 2 strips of 21cm each depending on how big your piece of felt is.
  • Step 3Cover your headband with your felt strip and wrap the edges under the headband to completely cover it. Attach with glue. Allow to dry.
  • Step 4Cut 3 chenille stems into 15cm pieces. Curl the end of each into a flat spiral shape. This will make the chenille stem easier to attach to your headband.
  • Step 5Attach the 3 chenille stems to the top of your headband with glue. Allow to dry.
  • You may need a hot glue gun for this step. Don’t forget adult supervision!
  • Step 7Push the other end of your chenille stems into the decofoam balls and add your wiggle eyes. Attach with glue. Allow to dry.
  • We pushed the chenille stems into the holes made by the skewers. This made them much easier to attach!
  • Step 9You may like to add yellow felt spots to your monster headband. Attach with glue. Allow to dry.
