In today’s post: Cute Christmas headband patterns you can print out for your kids. Great activity for Christmas parties at school!
Anyone need a fun and easy kids’ craft for a classroom Christmas party? I’ve got you covered! These Christmas headbands are super easy to make: just print out the templates and let kids cut them out and glue them together. Choose between a reindeer headband, a Santa headband, or an Elf headband. No fancy supplies required and no mess involved!
How to make Christmas headbands
Start by downloading the printable headband templates.
Each headband prints on two pieces of 8.5×11 paper. I prefer using cardstock because it is heavy enough to ensure all the pieces stand up and don’t flop over. You can either buy a pack of multi-colored cardstock and pull out the colors you’ll need, or catch a sale at Jo-Ann’s or Hobby Lobby when their single sheets of cardstock are 5 or 6 for a dollar. You could also use construction paper – you’ll likely need to trim it a bit to fit in your printer.
I printed the templates on colored cardstock so all my kids had to do was cut out the pieces and glue them together, but you could certainly print the templates on white cardstock and let the kids color them in!
Here’s a video that shows how to put them together:
NOTE: I used tape runner adhesive to glue the pieces onto the headband; feel free to use gluestick instead. Just be sure to use staples to connect the headband pieces to each other so they don’t come apart. Be aware that if you’re using these headbands for older kids, they may be a little tight, so you might want to bring extra cardstock to make them longer if needed.
Here’s what the reindeer template looks like:
The headband and antlers print on brown cardstock, and then you can print out a whole bunch of noses on one piece of red cardstock. If you’re only making one headband, you can just cut a 2 inch circle from red paper – we used sparkly red cardstock. You could also use plain paper and add red glitter, or use a 2 inch red pom pom.
This is what the Santa template looks like (two hat pieces print on the red sheet, but you only need one for each headband):
I used a white pom pom on the end of Santa’s hat, but I included a white circle on the template you can use if you don’t want to get pom poms.
And here’s what the Elf template looks like (two hat pieces print on the red sheet, but you only need one for each headband):
I glued a little bell onto the end of the Elf’s hat (you can find them at the dollar store), but if you don’t want to buy bells there is a green circle included on the template kids can use instead.
