Not too long ago I was invited to a baby shower for a relative of mine, and the theme of the shower was..(can you take a wild guess?) Lol Minnie Mouse! so of course there had to be a game on who can create the BEST Minnie Ears! I was so determined to make the cutest set and win a prize, lol. From that moment on, I gathered a few simple supplies I actually already had around the house, and…Voilá! These super cute daisy flower ears were the end result, and I was so in love with them!:) they were super simple to make and I can guarantee you, once you make your first set, you will become obsessed like I did, lol. I couldn’t believe how easy they were to put together, and may I add, budget friendly! Anyone can create these with just a few supplies. And best of all, you can customize them however you like! The possibilities are endless:) I plan to make many more of these beauties in the near future and eventually rock a pair of my own at the happiest place on earth:) I hope you enjoy making these Minnie Mouse Headbands as much as I did! be prepared to get hooked! lol … (p.s. my ears took home the winning prize that day) whoa yeah!:)
- Headband (I found a pack of 3 at the dollar store, score!)
- Glue gun, or any kind of strong,super glue
- A piece of cardboard, or cardstock paper ( this will be used to shape and hold structure of the ears.)
- Black-colored craft felt. (this material will be used to cover the surface of the ears, you can find this material in your local craft store, I found mine at Wal-Mart in the craft department for under a $1.)
- Artificial flowers, (any style/color you like, remove flower heads from stem and glue them to the ears)
- Ribbon/Bow, (the bow will be glued in the center between the ears)
- I traced the bottom of a cup to create a perfect round shape for the ears
- Cut your felt fabric to match the circumstance of the ears you just traced, glue the felt onto the ears(front and back) to hide the appearance of the cardboard/cardstock paper.
- You will then use your glue to attach the ears to the headband)
- As soon as you have the ears securely attached, you can then start gluing your flowers onto the ears.
- To finish the look, use any ribbon of your choice and create a bow for the center of the headband. For a more simple alternative, you can purchase an already made bow and simply glue onto the headband, whichever way is easiest for you:)
Here’s another set of ears I made using mini sunflowers!
Stay tuned for a future post on how I make my own DIY hair bows!
