  1. Begin by cutting 2-3 strips (about 2 inches thick) of the brown felt. The number of strips will depend on the size of your child. You will need enough so that when connected, the felt fits around their head. We didn't use a paper headband template or anything but it's easy to create this indian headband with feathers.
  2. Attach the strips to each other with your glue. Press them together end to end and hold in place until the glue is dry and secure. Your headband is now created.
  3. Embellish the head band by cutting small strips of tan felt. You can then add glue and arrange these to the brown felt. We created a simple zig zag pattern.
  4. Now, attach the feathers. Simply add some glue and press them to the headband. They will take a little while to dry, so don’t rush this step.
