Do you want to replicate one of the only hairstyles that everyone on the planet recognizes? This easy craft makes the Princess Leia's buns from wool and a headband.
Materials You Will Need
Brown wool yarn (or yarn that matches your hair)
1 Foam ball as big or as little as you desire - it's your hairstyle!
Steps for Making This Easy Star Wars Craft
Step 1 - Using a serrated knife, cut the foam ball in half.
Step 2 - Make a hole in each half of the foam ball for your ears. You can use the knife to do this. I recommend the cut and then test method so that you don't go too big or too small.
Step 3 - Put glue on the outside of the foam and start winding the yarn, starting from the inside, in a circular pattern. Continue all the way to the outside of the foam and ensure that you have covered up all the foam, including the edges.
Step 4 - Cut the yarn at the spot that you end, and then ensure the yarn is firmly on the surface by pressing and holding it down. Let dry.
Step 5 - Put glue all over the headband and start wrapping the yarn around the headband. Work your way from one side to the other. When you have completely covered the headband in the wool, press down the wool all over the headband to ensure it is on there well. Let dry.
Step 6 - Put headband on. Put one bun on your right ear and make a mark on the headband where the bun will sit, or just use your finger to keep track of where the meeting point will be.
Step 7 - On the inside of the bun, spread some glue on the foam and press the area you marked on the headband into the glue. Hold firmly and let dry for a few minutes. (You may even want to give it a few extra minutes to dry so that you don't break it off when testing out the other headband point.)
Step 8 - Repeat step 6 and 7 with left side.
Step 8 - Go out and sport the most memorable hairstyle ever!
