How to Make DIY Reindeer Antlers

One day Mia said, "Mom, can you sew me reindeer antlers? And for my friends at school too." This girl asks and she shall receive! Here's a tutorial on how to make your own cheap DIY reindeer antlers. Ok it's basically the same as my Mickey Mouse ears tutorial, but still.

Time: 5 minutes
Cost: $1
Materials: Headband, fabric glue, 1 sheet brown stiffened felt
Instructions:
1. Fold felt in half. Using a white pencil or crayon, draw outline of antlers with a tab at the bottom (to fold over the headband).

2. With the felt folded in half, cut antlers out. You should have 2 antlers.
3. Check placement on headband, fold tab on dotted line back around headband and glue down. Hold or use a binder clip to hold in place for a few minutes to let the glue set.
Ta-da! My little Rudolph is ready for her holiday show at school tomorrow! She's been practicing and we love love love her little voice. She also wants to wear these PJs every night! I'd post a same time last year comparison, but it doesn't look like she's changed!
