Perhaps you can find some wooden dowels that will be the right size to use?

I think pipe cleaners would be fine for the doll but you might try using wire cutters on a wire coat hanger for your daughter's head band.

I've done a couple of them before, what I did was take a long pipe cleaner, bend the two ends up leaving a straight piece about 3 inches in the middle and glued it to a plastic headband and then do a woven headband over it, they turned out really cute but for some reason I never took pictures of them before I sent them out.

This is what I was thinking. The pipe cleaner should keep its shape. You could always double the pipe cleaner for each antenna.

I made one for my daughter two years ago. I bought black and yellow pipe cleaner and a regular thin wire headband. I took the yellow and black pipecleaner and held them together and twisted around the wire headband (so that it was alternating colors on the headband. For the antennae, I twisted the black and yellow pipe cleaners (Make two, obviously) and attached them to the headband by wrapping them and adding a little hot glue just for measure. I also bought two very large black puff balls and attached them to the ends of the antennae. It was very cute and super super easy to make. Let me know what you end up doing.
