Measure your first piece of wire garland around the intended wearer’s head. Or, if you are making multiples, just find someone close in age to the intended recipients age range (no exact science over here lol). I used a styrofoam mannequin head for this tutorial.
Cut some pieces of curling ribbon. These will be the curly pieces hanging down the wearer’s back. You’ll need to cut them about 3” longer than you really want them because you will be curling them in a later step, and that tends to shorten them quite a bit.
Fold the cut pieces in half and make a loop. Slide the loop under the halo pieces. Then, bring the longer pieces up and through the loop. Pull tight to secure to your halo.
Use the scissors to curl your curling ribbon pieces up a bit. I’m not quite sure how to explain this process if you haven’t ever done it before. I just place the ribbon against the side of the scissor blade and hold it firmly against the blade with my thumb. Then pull the full length of the ribbon between your thumb and the scissors quickly. It usually works best for me if the curling ribbon is touching the scissor blade on the least shiny and non-ribbed side. I hope that makes sense.
Voila, super fun and inexpensive wire garland halo. These are perfect for parades and carnivals or just for play! Thanks for learning how to make a hair halo with us today. I hope you have fun making them. You can make them and sell them at parades too!
