Make It Pretty Wednesdays: Glittery Star Headband

Can you believe New Years is just around the corner? Seriously, just THREE days from now! Do you have plans? Do you have a little sparkly number picked out for a night on the town? My husband and I will be at home with our kids again this year-we love to watch the East Coast ball drop with them. We play family board games and drink sparkling cider! But… if I were going to hit the town, wouldn’t this be the perfect glitzy addition to any outfit?


Glittery Headband


I found it on Pinterest of course! This Starlette Crown is from the Giant Dwarf Etsy Shop and it is all kinds of fabulous! But if you didn’t have the $75 to invest in this pretty purchase, you can make your own version using what you probably already have in your craft stash!

 DIY Glittery Star Headband


  • Scrap Cardboard-I used the bottom of a shoe box!
  • Craft Glue
  • Silver Glitter
  • Precision Knife & Cutting Mat
  • Ribbon
  • Paper, Pen & Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun





Draw a star on paper. I tend to like things a bit asymmetrical and free-formed, but you could always use a stencil or the like.



Cut out the paper star shape and use this as your guide. Cut five stars from the cardboard.



Spread glue in a thin layer over each star.



Cover the stars with glitter and let dry.



Cut two strips of ribbon long enough to fit around your head and tie easily. Glue one star to the very center of both pieces of ribbon as shown in the picture. And add the remaining stars on each side:



And you are ready to add a bit of sparkle and fancy to wherever the New Year takes you!
