Make it Monday-Halloween Hair Bands

Make it Monday October 15th 2012

Halloween is right around the corner and while I was at Wal-Mart I found the most adorable candy corn duct tape. Their small design made me think they would be perfect for making Halloween Hair bands for our dolls. This craft can be done with any Duck tape and can be made in a group or party setting for very little investment.

To make your own Halloween Hair band for your doll you will need:
-Duck tape (I used Candy Corn print)
-3/4 inch elastic, you will need 4 inches per hair band
-a ruler
-you doll to wear the hair band.

Step 1- Each 18 inch doll head requires a hair band that measures 10 inches around.  So you will need to measure and cut 4 inches of elastic and 6 inches of tape.
Step 2- Lay your tape sticky side up and place one end of the elastic on the end. Fold over one side of the tape towards the middle. Carefully bend the other end of the elastic to the other end of the tape creating a circle as you go, fold over the the remaining tape to secure the elastic ends in place.

Step 3- reinforce the elastic where it meets the tape with another small piece of tape as shown in the photos above. Make sure to wrap the tape so that the folded edges are on the underneath of your hair band.

Step 4- Place the hair band on your dolls head and make some for your friends!
