Diy: Alpaca Ears

So, I've come to you with a simple and fast 'how to' pictorial on making my alpaca ears!
Just in time for Halloween, in case you have no clue what to be, why not be a cute arpakasso!

What you'll need:
Headband
Sheet of felt
Hot glue gun
Scissors
Pencil
1. You'll need to trace and cut out 4 semi ovals roughly 6 in across and 3 inches tall and pair them off.. 

 2. Hot glue the rounded edges together on both pairs and then turn them inside out.
3. Then hot glue the bottom edge closed.
4. Finally then to hot glue the ear onto the headband~ I recommend folding the bottom part of the ear inward on the head band and gluing it flat and doing the same to the other half, kind of like the above example... Then do the same to the other ear.

Note: I spaced my ears about 3 inches apart~
 I made a pair for each of my friends to enjoy in different colours~

It's something fun and really cheap to make<3
Great for parties, costumes and of course Halloween~
