minnie mouse headband tutorial

Jillian's 2nd birthday party was a Minnie Mouse-palooza! 

There were Minnie and Mickey Mouse ears for everyone...naturally. 

I decided to make them because they were WAY too expensive to buy (like $6-$8 a pair), and the cheap ones at the party store were..well, cheap. So this was a good alternative. They were about $1.50 each to make.

Materials needed:

  • Black headbands (I found mine at Hobby Lobby for $1 each)
  • Black stiff felt 
  • Something round to trace (however big you want the ears to be, I used a tape roll)
  • White paint pen (or something else to trace your circles on the felt)
  • Hot glue
  • Red ribbon

Step 1: 
Trace your round object on the black stiff felt using the white paint pen.
I was able to get enough circles for 6 headbands on 1 felt sheet using my half-used tape roll.

Step 2:
Cut out the circles in pairs leaving a space in between, like so:

Step 3:
Place the headband in that space where you cut the two circles out. Make a design with your hot glue, then fold those two babies together.

Step 4:
Once they are glued, trim off any places where the circles don't match up exactly. 

Step 5:
Add a bow to make them into Minnie (instead of Mickey) ears!
