Cricut Maker Antenna Headband

To make this Cricut Antenna Headband, you’ll need:

Cricut Maker Machine
Green Felt (I used a sheet from the Cricut Felt Sky Sampler)
Headband
2 pipe cleaners the same color as your headband
Hot Glue
Scissors (optional)

supplies for Cricut Antenna Headband

Start by opening the Cricut Antenna Headband cut file in Design Space. I have it all made for you!

Place the felt on the mat. If you have the Maker, you probably have the pink mat it came with. I’m using the green mat here, either will work fine. Follow the prompts in Design Space to cut the shape.

Remove the excess felt from the mat. Set it aside so you can save it for another project.

peel off mat

Put a line of hot glue down the center of one of the antenna pieces.

glue for pipe cleaner

Being careful not to burn your fingers, put a pipe cleaner in place over the glue. Then add more glue around the pipe cleaner.

Carefully place the second piece on top. Try to line up the edges.

put on top.

If your edges aren’t perfect, or hot glue leaks out the sides, don’t worry. Use your scissors to trim away any stray glue, and any edges that don’t line up.

Repeat for the second antenna. Grab your headband, and line up your antenna. My instinct was to put them far apart, but in the Cricut logo they are fairly close together – so I think closer looks better. You can make yours however you like.

Wrap the pipe cleaner tightly around the headband to secure the antenna in place.

twist in place

Repeat for the other side, and your Cricut Antenna Headband is complete!

Wear yours to a crop, to a fun craft night with your friends, or just to amuse yourself while crafting! Though these Cricut Antenna make a fun costume, you can wear them year-round, not just on Halloween! You can make extra pairs for friends to wear. While I whipped mine up in the more traditional green color – you can make yours any color you like!
