Follow these directions to make a headband you can wear that looks like dog ears.

  • Age Guideline: 3 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 20 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed

  • Construction Paper
  • Crayons or Markers
  • Stapler or Cellophane Tape
  • Scissors


Using the construction paper, cut out a strip of paper about 2-inches thick and long enough to wrap around your forehead. Make sure you make it an inch or two longer so you can staple the ends together.

Now, fold another piece of paper in half and cut out a set of dog ears. They can be long, teardrop-shaped ears, or short, perky ears; whatever you want! If you want to add spots or other designs to your dog ears, do it now using crayons or markers.

Put the bottom edge of each ear up against the strip of paper and staple or tape them in place. Once the ears are attached, staple or tape the ends of the strip together to snuggly fit around your forehead.
