Paper Glitter Mickey Ears
Today I am going to talk about our super easy paper glitter mickey ears. I read many tutorials on how to make mickey ears using a headband. The tutorials were pretty easy but a little time consuming. Many of them used felt for the ears with a foam piece in the middle and a few others used thick foam sheets.They are all great options but I had 20 toddlers to make them for and I also did not have very much time so I wanted something a little easier than the many options I was seeing. I even looked into just purchasing some cheap ones but the ones I found were really ugly and still pretty expensive. I eventually decided that glitter cardstock would be my best friend. I purchased 12x12 glitter cardstock sheets and traced mickey ears with a little lip after them that I could bend around the headband and hot glue to it. I do think if you are making them to last for years, I wouldn't choose paper. Ours have lasted though for over a week and my kids have not been gentle with them, In fact they have thrown them and stepped on them many times.
To make this, be sure to get:
Black headbands (found mine at dollar tree)
Black glitter cardstock
Scissors (if you don't already have them)
Hot Glue and a Hot Glue Gun (also, if you don't already have it)
