This parrot headband tutorial post is sponsored by The Wild Life, in theaters September 9. All opinions are mine.
Have you seen the previews for The Wild Life yet? It looks so cute and I can’t wait to take the kids when it hits theaters on September 9th! I just know Mak, the overly excited parrot, will be a favorite character from the movie. He reminds me of my spunky 3 year old lol! While we countdown the days until we can see The Wild Life, we crafted up a Mak inspired headband. Make one for yourself or your children, so you can all wear Mak headbands to the film. This would also be a fun Halloween costume accessory for a pirate!
The new animated release features a whole crew of larger than life characters. In addition to Mak the parrot, there is a tapir named Rosie, the persnickety porcupine Epi, a ditzy goat called Scrubby, the always-cool chameleon Carmello, and so many others that there’s bound to be a favorite for everyone in your family.

Step 1: Print out the Parrot Headband Template.
Step 2: Cut around the parrot pieces from the template.

Step 5: Sandwich the elastic headband between the two red parrot pieces and attach with no-sew fabric glue or a hot glue gun. Attach a googly eye to the white circle on the parrot.
