DIY Minnie Mouse Ears

wpid-20150920_205846_wm.jpgNot 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!:)

Supplies Needed:

  • Headband (I found a pack of 3 at the dollar store, score!)
  • Scissors
  • 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)

Directions:

  1.  I traced the bottom of a cup to create a perfect round shape for the ears
  2. 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.
  3. You will then use your glue to attach the ears to the headband)
  4. As soon as you have the ears securely attached, you can then start gluing your flowers onto the ears.
  5. 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!
