Learn How to Make Some Troll Headbands #TigerStrypesBlog 7

Learn How to Make Some Troll Headbands I always loved playing with those pencils that had hair back in the day.  You would have the hair all messed up and then spin it between your hands, and the hair would go together perfectly.  I always wished I could do that with my own hair! ha/ha  When the Trolls movie came out, it really made me […]
