DIY Medusa Headband Tutorial
This past Halloween my little sister wanted to be Medusa so I made her a headpiece to go with her costume, and decided I'd also go ahead and create a tutorial to show how I made it. Here, you'll find the steps I took to create this head piece here:
Things you'll need:
Simple 1 inch Black headband (I bought mine at Walmart, but here's one on Amazon)
20 gauge wire (can be found at most craft stores)
Large snakes. I got mine on Amazon
Small snakes. I also got these on Amazon
Spray Paint Primer: Found at most hardware or paint stores. (You can substitute white spray paint, this is just to create an even base for the gold paint.)
Metallic Gold Spray Paint: Found at most hardware or paint stores.
I also recommend a clear spray varnish to help protect the piece.
Blue painters tape to protect the headband unless you plan on painting the whole thing along with the snakes
Hot glue gun: Found in most craft or hardware stores, can even be found at Walmart.
Needle nose pliers: Most needle nose pliers will come with built in wire snips, but if you can't find a pair that do, then I'd also recommend grabbing some wire cutters for the wire. These can also be found in most craft or hardware stores.
As always, protect your workspace. You can do so easily by just laying down some newsprint to protect the area. This is to keep the hot glue from sticking to your table/tablecloth.
