Disney Craft {Easy Mickey Ears}

Seriously... how cute are these adorable, felt Mickey Mouse ears?  They are really easy to put together, and they are perfect for dress up, party favors, or a trip to Disney.  :-)


I got the idea from Family Fun {such a great magazine and awesome website}, but I made a few minor changes.  Here is what I did:

First, I downloaded the template from Family Fun here.  After my first attempt, I ended up cutting about 1 cm out of the middle part.  You will have to make adjustments based on the thickness of your headband.


Then, I twisted some pipe cleaners onto the headband.  (This wasn't in the original version, but I found it necessary in order to keep the ears "up")


Finally, I glued the middle section onto the underside of the headband (using hot glue), and then glued the front and back of the ears together.



I hope you give this a try.  Let me know how your little "mouse" likes them.

  1. This is great! Thanks for the idea! My son's classmate just got back from Disney World and all he's been talking about for 2 days is "can we go to Disney World and get a hat with Mickey Mouse ears like her?". I'll make them with him during March Break.

    1. I found them at Walmart. The package was half black and half dark brown. You should check eBay if you need a bunch of the same color.
