I always used to love these when I was little, and there was always a guy selling them at parades and carnivals and things like that. I would beg and beg, but my mom would say she wasn’t going to buy something that she could make so easily. Trouble is, she never made me one! Sad huh?
Well, don’t let that happen to your little girl lol. Or any other little girl you know! These princess halos are so cost effective and easy to make that you could make a ton.
Let’s get started.
You will need:
I am a total patriot–so even just the supplies look fun to me! Lol
Foil Garland (whatever styles/colors you want)
Curling ribbon–the egg kind is good because it totally curls for you. But you can use scissors to curl the other kind if it isn’t curly enough. Again, whatever styles and colors you like.
Unravel the ends off of one of your garland rounds and measure a piece long enough to fit your subjects head. You’ll want to cut it about 2″-3″ longer than you need for wrapping purposes.
Use the piece you just cut to measure and cut your other garland pieces to about the same size.
Now wrap your garland pieces around each other a little bit and form them into a round keeping the opening about the size you will need for your subject’s head. Wrap the ends together using that 2″-3″ extra length that you kept.
That could be cute be cute all by itself, don’t you think?
But, we’re going to go ahead and add us some streamers.
So, cut some long strands off of each of your curling ribbon rolls. Mine ended up being about 2 yards I think, but I cut some off after I tied it.
Now make a loop in the center of your curling ribbon strands and put it through the opening of your halo like this. Sorry for the cruddy picture. It is hard to make curly ribbon lie flat
Now pull the long ends of your curling ribbon up through your loop and pull tight. The same way I did with the tulle in the tutu tutorial here.
Tie a pretty bow with your long curling ribbon ends.
Ta da! All done. Wasn’t that easy? And fun? Don’t you want to make a bajillion?
You can also embellish these by putting rhinestones, buttons, or flowers in the center of your bow. Or even adding some ribbon to your curly tail mix. Whatever puts a smile on your face! Fairy Halos are just such a hit. You could wear them to a parade, or make them for your daughters fairy or princess birthday party.
Now that you know how to make them, you could sell them at carnivals and festivals. They are also great for Booster Clubs and PTA for fundraisers as well.
