Headband Tutorial


My daughters favourite thing at the moment is the movie Trolls. Fortunately for her I had some left over tulle after making a tutu today and decided to make a Pinterest inspired Trolls headband for her imaginative play.


After school we ventured to Red Dot to find some cheap flower decorations and a thick headband that would be suitable. The whole project took about 15 minutes to create and was quite easy.  To make a unique Troll headband you could use different coloured tulle and add different decorations to suit your personality.

You will need:

  • Tulle of any colour (1/2 Metre)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Headband (thick)
  • Flowers or decorations
  • Scissors

Start by cutting strips of tulle, I cut mine into 60cm strips and about 5cm wide.

Fold in half and loop around the headband, then pull tight.

Continue putting loops of tulle onto the headband until you have roughly 12.

I used a spare piece of tulle to tie the top part of the Troll hair together forming a ponytail style.

MJ then decided on what coloured flowers she wanted on her Troll hair and we used the hot glue gun to secure them into place.

Once the glue had dried, MJ was very happy to dance around the house with her new Troll hair.
