Creature from Outer Space
Use your imagination to create a headband that makes you a creature from outer space. What kind of space alien would you like to be? Funny? Monsterlike? It's all up to you.
This is a fun adult-and-kid craft. Grown-ups can do the cutting and assembling of the craft; kids will enjoy decorating and deciding how wild or scary or humorous to make the pattern.
What You'll Need:
- Poster board in different colors
- Pencils or markers
- Double-stick tape
- Goggle eyes
- Round-cord elastic
How to Make the Creature from Outer Space Headband:
Step 1: Make a pattern, starting with a 1-1/2 × 14-inch rectangular band.
Step 2: Add two squiggly lined projectiles, approximately 7 inches tall, along one long edge, positioning each slightly off-center. If desired, draw two smaller projectiles in part of the remaining space.
Step 3: Draw another, same-sized band and add two projectiles, slightly off-center to the projectiles on the first band; cut both patterns out.
Step 4: Trace patterns onto two different colors of poster board; cut them out (see photo).
Step 5: Add goggle eyes where desired to complete your look.
Step 6: Punch holes near the ends of the band and tie closed to fit around your head with a piece of round-cord elastic.
