No Sew Powerpuff Girls Headband DIY
Fighting crime and the forces of evil with super girl powers and cuteness – my kind of heroes. Do you remember The Powerpuff Girls? One of the original kick-butt girl cartoons out there, I love how Powerpuff Girls combine cuteness and toughness in one colorful package. Hulu is now the only place to find the full classic animated series of The Powerpuff Girls. To celebrate their arrival, I was inspired to create this cute yet tough No Sew Powerpuff Girls Headband DIY – because every girl should celebrate their Girl Power!
My childhood is raising the roof right now. Powerpuff Girls is now streaming on Hulu. As one of Cartoon Network’s most enduring original series, the initial run of The Powerpuff Girls, created by Craig McCracken, premiered in 1998 and quickly became a global phenomenon. Since its premiere, the series earned two Emmy® Awards along with five nominations and countless animation honors throughout its 80 episodes.
In case you haven’t see this Emmy Award nominated show yet, The Powerpuff Girls centers on three sugar-coated superheroes, Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, whose missions in life alternate between going to school, fighting crime, winning at hopscotch and saving the world before bedtime. The girls are frequently called upon by the town’s mayor to help fight nearby criminals using their powers. While their differences cause them to squabble and tease, their individual strengths combined always lead them to victory. They rely on teamwork, trust, and friendship to thwart evil (in the most adorable way). Encouraging little girls to embrace their Girl Power, I love how Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup tell little girls that super things do come in small packages.
No Sew Powerpuff Girls Headband DIY
My name is Christie and I still cannot sew. However, I am a super hero when it comes to the hot glue gun. With a trio of super girls coming to Hulu, I thought it would be a great time to show my little 4-year old daughter how to embrace her Girl Power too, with this adorable yet super No Sew Powerpuff Girls Headband – all for under $6! Ready to make one of your own?
What You Will Need:
- 1 Black Headband – 1 inch thick
- Stiff Craft Felt in Red, Orange, Yellow, Pink, Black
- Colored Stock Paper: Green, Blue, Pink, White
- 8 Googly Eyes – small to medium sized
- Silver Glitter Glue
- Sharp Scissors
- Hot Glue
Start by cutting the edge off of each googly eye – saving the black inner circles (mine were about 5/16 inch in size). Discard the rest. Keep 6 black circles whole (for the eyes). Cut 2 of the black circles in half – these will be the mouths.
Trace and cut out 2 green, 2 pink and 2 blue circles a little bit bigger than your black circles (mine were about 1/2 inch in size). Then trace and cut out 6 white circles a little bit bigger than your colored circles (mine were about 17/32 inch in size). Put aside. Now we’re going to cut out felt pieces for our little Powerpuff Girls.
Cut out pieces for Bubbles, as shown.
For Blossom, as shown.
And don’t forget Buttercup, as shown.
Using your hot glue gun, assemble the pieces together to create your little Powerpuff Girls heads. Aren’t they adorable?
Let’s not forget to add a little sparkle! Using your glitter glue, dab a small circle inside of the black circles of all three of the Powerpuff Girls’ eyes. Allow to dry.
Now it’s time to grab your headband. Hot glue the Powerpuff Girls to headband in the desired design. I put all 3 heads on one side of the headband, but they’d also look adorable in the middle or spread out too.
Time to shine! Let your little super girl wear her no sew Powerpuff Girls Headband and show off her girl power!
My daughter was instantly in love with her custom Powerpuff Girls hair accessory – a perfect “POW-factor” to any super girl wardrobe.
And for under $6, this is a fun DIY themed craft to celebrate The Powerpuff Girls and their arrival to Hulu.
