Default How to make bumble bee antenna headband?

I have a customer who LOVES the skinny elastic headbands. She wants a skinny elastic with bee antennae for halloween. Does anyone have any ideas, it is for a 1 yr. old so it can't be pokey(pipe cleaner). I experimented and I can't figure out how to make them standing up. Thanks for any ideas. Also she said if i had to i could use a black crochet headband. But not a hard plastic one.

see that would be hard if u cant use pipe cleaners, what if you looped the pipe cleaner around so it doesn't have any poking her head? then at the pointy side glue 2 pompoms to it --u can still use the skinny bands and it wont bother her head-if you wanted to just add a bit of black maribo fluff to the part that goes on her head, then she wont feel it

I made some on a crocheted headband & did like girlybaby said. I looped the pipe cleaner through the holes of the HB then at the ends I twisted them into the swirls to give it more stability. It worked great!

Thank you, I might just tell her its pipe cleaners or nothing! I made one anntenna with a puff ball and it is so cute and it shouldn't bother her becasue I put a felt cirlcle on the bottom where it touches her head. Thanks so much!!

I just made some this morning and put them on lined clips. I used one pipe cleaner. Cut it in half, then wrapped the bottom end around the lined (top) part of the clip about 3 times. At the top, I glued a yellow pom pom. I, then, attached a bow at the base of the antenna to give it the girly look. I'm attaching a pic but it's not very clear. Hopefully you get the idea though...

The total height is about 4 inches.
