DIY - LED Fairy Lights Cat Ears Headband

Hey Chicsters!

I recently went to Forever 21 to pick up a few items. I found THIS lovely Rhinestone Cat Ears Headband and HAD to get it!! I also had to come home to finish a product review on Bright Touch's LED Fairy Lights. I soon realized after wondering about how should I use them in a review that I could totally wrap these around my headband! It sounded like a far-fetched idea, but I was very determined.

They actually turned out cute tho...

Now, that I know they work, here's a quick tutorial on how to make your own:

NOTE: I understand that these LED fairy lights can either come with a Battery Pack or USB, so you better have some Duracell, portable USB charger, or SOMETHING if you want these babies to shine bright ALL NIGHT.

1. Get some LED Fairy Lights.

I have these 33ft. LED Fairy Lights from Bright Touch (They are USB).

2. Get a Cat Ears Headband

I found mine at Forever 21.

3. Begin wrapping the wire starting at the edge of the headband, Applied desired thickness.

4. Make sure ears are fully covered.

5. Voila! NEW Cat Ears!!

Begin by using the acrylic pain and painting the wooden initial with even strokes until fully covered. Let dry for a few minutes, then repeat on the back side (Don't forget to paint the sides in & out)!!

SPRAY & SPRINKLE

Spray glue, then sprinkle the glitter evenly!

Once the paint has dried, begin spraying the glue in small sections and sprinkle the glitter evenly amongst the initial. Repeat on the back and the sides. This has to be the messiest process, so make sure to keep the glitter contained (and maybe wear gloves)!!
