We’re so excited to share these DIY Mickey or Minnie Mouse ears today! These are perfect to make before your Disney trip! We were fortunate enough to go back in September! Mine and Steffany’s husbands whole family goes every year and we love to go when we are able……which mostly means when we have enough life savings to cash out so we can afford it! (Check out our Disney savings jar HERE.) There’s really no way around it, Disneyland is an expensive family vacation! So, so fun – – YES! But still……. very expensive. One of the ways we try to save a little money is by NOT buying some things in the park – like the ever popular Mickey ears.
These are super easy to make ahead of time and are just as cute as the ones in the park.
Here’s what you need to make your own DIY Mickey or Minnie Mouse ears:
- Black headband
- Black felt
- Foam sheet (like THESE)
- Glue gun
We found this perfect template over at www.TheSuburbanMom.com, which makes these cute ears so easy! Print and cut out the template, then trace it onto black felt. We used some stiff black felt for extra stability.
If you just need Mickey ears, you are done! If you would like Minnie ears, lets talk about the interchangeable NO SEW bows we made. 🙂
Here’s what you’ll need to make the bow:
- Pinking shears
- Glue gun
- Alligator hair clip (like THESE)
First, cut a piece of fabric to about 3 inches by 6 inches.
Hot glue a piece of coordinating ribbon around the center for a finished look. Last, hot glue an alligator clip to the back of the bow; or if you don’t want the bow to be interchangeable, simply hot glue it right to the Mouse ears.
Clip the bow to one side of the ears………Minnie Mouse ears!!
So easy and cute! DIY Mickey or Minnie Mouse ears are the way to go if you’re heading to Disneyland!
