Halloween DIY: Googly Eye Headband

A smile is the best accessory a girl can wear… but a Googly Eye Headband is the spookiest.

Mila absolutely loves accessorizing for school, dance class, and everything in between. We had to make something a little creepy for Halloween week! This Halloween DIY was a fun one to make and made a huge statement too!

To make our Googly Eye Headband, we just needed three things… I found everything at our local dollar store:

  • Fluffy Kitty Headband
  • Hot Glue
  • Googly Eyes

First, remove the ears off of your cat headband. Mila’s were easy for me to take off. I just had to tug at them a little bit. They didn’t negatively impact the headband either!

Next, glue the two ear together to make a diamond shape. Be careful here, you could burn your fingers.

Then, start gluing googly eyes down.

I didn’t do it in a specific order. Just where I thought the different sizes should go.

Once the diamond shape was completely covered, I glued it to the headband. To make it more cohesive, I added a few googly eyes directly to the headband too.

After everything was glued down, I made sure to take off excess glue that stuck to the eyes and headband. I ended up adding a few more eyes on it too when it was put together.

Mila LOVED how it turned out and has worn it a couple of times already.

I think it would be perfect for a witch’s costume, if your child wouldn’t want to wear a hat. It might be cute for a monster costume as well.

My favorite way Mila’s worn it was with a Halloween shirt to school!

The headband doesn’t get weighed down by all the eyes and Mila had hers on for the entire day.

This simple Halloween DIY is a fun way to add a little spooky to your every day outfits. You can easily pick up these items at your local dollar store too!

I hope you and your little ghoul love this accessory as much as we did!
