DIY Trolls Inspired Masks and Hair Headbands
My daughter decided the three of us are going to be characters from the Trolls movie for a carnival this year in our town! That’s why I had to come up with some Trolls inspired masks and hair headbands. 😉
I’m thinking these masks would be a cute idea for a Trolls themed birthday party too! Or just a fun character play at home with kids!

Print mask templates and cut along the lines, then trace template onto craft foam and cut out the mask.
Add fun details! I used markers to draw lashes, brows and ears onto the mask and glued on a small piece for a nose. You can also apply a thin layer of glue and attach glitter for shimmery checks! For a DJ Suki mask, I also cut some headphones!
You can create different characters and add fun details of your choice!
When the mask is dry, carefully make a small hole on each side using a toothpick and tie an elastic string.
TROLLS HAIR HEADBANDS
Of course, we also needed some trolls hair to complete the look! 🙂 With help from this tutorial I created a Poppy, Branch and DJ Suki characters’s hair headbands. All you need is some tulle, string and a headband!
- elastic band
- felt flowers and liquid glue (for a Poppy character) – see tutorial below
Cut 15-20 strips tulle about 22 inches long. No need to be precise though. Fold the strips in half and loop them on the headband or just tie them onto the headband with double knot. Works either way! Repeat around the top of the headband until it’s as full as you want. Tie the edges wit a rubber band. Make sure not to tie it too high, so the tulle hair doesn’t flip down while wearing it.
Poppy character has a signature flower hairband and fringe. Cut a few shorter strips of tulle and double knot them in between the other tulle hair to make it look like fringe!
Cut a strip of thin green felt in a slightly rounded shape. Again, no need to be too precise, just eyeball it.
Make three blue felt flowers and glue them onto the hairband.
Felt flowers instructions
Take a A4 sheet of a light blue felt and cut a strip along the longer side. Cut the strip in half. Take one half and cut five scallops. Trim off any excess. Take the other half and cut it into 3 petal shaped pieces.
Roll the scalloped piece to form the center of a flower. Use liquid glue to glue it closed. Place a dab of glue to the bottom of the rolled bud and place it on top of the three petal pieces. Add a bit of glue to the bottom of each flower and glue it onto the green hairband.
Done! Now you can look just like Poppy, Branch or DJ Suki character from the movie! Or just add different details to a mask template to create your own troll look!
Now just find the nearest troll, “IT’S HUG TIME!” 😉
