Drawn to DIY Like a Moth to a Flame

Some people find moths to be scary. But they can also be quite beautiful and diverse in their color patterns. This is why we love the idea of crafting a papercut moth headband for Halloween.

Also, if you find yourself drawn to the idea of making your own Halloween costume, this DIY headband is a simple way to get started. And there’s plenty of room to get creative, which is what we love about Halloween. You can use the same colors of paper as we did or play around with different shades. You could also switch up the color of the headband if you want. It’s all up to you!
