Fold over elastic

That’s it.  Now to make it easy I use the cardboard to measure my tulle.  My cardboard is 38cm long width doesn’t really matter.  So my tulle will be 76cm lengths.

I wrap my tulle around the cardboard and use the hair clip so I know which sided I started on.  I wrapped the tulle around to give me 20 lengths.

I used just over 15 metres of tulle in total.  You would need more if you want your troll headband to look more like a wig.

Take your tulle and fold it in half to make a loop.  Feed the end of your tulle over your elastic and through the loop.

Keep working your way around the elastic.  I didn’t go all the way around.
