Cut the foam pieces out and set aside.
You will need 3 pieces of the black and purple foam for each horn and ear.
Glue the 3 pieces of foam together with the glitter facing the front. Glue the green flames on top of the purple foam. Set aside.
Start assembling the bow. Put the pieces of the bow together and add a bit of glue to secure in place.
See photo for example. Repeat this with the second piece.
Place the bow on the bottom piece of it and then wrap a small strip around the middle and secure with glue.
Glue a border around the horns and ears with black sewing trim.
Glue the ears onto the headband.
