How to make a Christmas tree headband

Glue a Christmas garland all around your Styrofoam cone to create a Christmas tree.

Trimming the Christmas garland with scissors

Use scissors to trim the garland to make a neat-looking tree.

Easy-to-make Christmas headbands

Use old beaded necklace strands to decorate your tree, securing the strands with hot glue.

Decorating the mini Christmas tree

Red and gold are the best colors to use. Don’t forget a tree-topper. You could use an old bow for that purpose!

Finish the Christmas hairbands for comfort

You want these funky DIY Christmas hairbands to be comfortable to wear, so use some small spare pieces of felt from your fabric stash and glue them to the inside top of your hairband.

That will give the decoration more stability and protect your hair from getting caught in the Christmas tree or ornament.
