DIY Disney Floral Ears
Are you as obsessed as much as I am with the new trends of Disney floral ears? As I spend hours pining over Etsy and feeling like I could easily be on an edition of Hoarders: Disney Ear Edition, I finally broke down and decided to make my own.
After all, there’s no need to go broke just because you, like me, MUST have every variation of floral ears there is in existence.
Floral Ears Supply List
Thankfully, making your own ears is fairly simple. All you need are a few basic supplies:
- Thick Headband – You can use one you have already, or grab two for $1 at Dollar Tree! Of course, they can be found almost anywhere including Amazon too.
- Bendable Wire – You’ll need 4 pieces of this. It can be any color you’d like. I use floral wire, which can be easily found at any craft store.
- Wire Cutters – Take it from me, you’ll need these! Scissors won’t really work with cutting wire, especially if you bought a thicker wire.
- Fake Flowers – You can get these anywhere. I suggest a few different colors and not too large ones!)
- Hot Glue and Hot Glue Gun
Steps to DIY Disney Floral Ears
- Grab two pieces of wire and hold them together with ends aligned. Then, twist them together from one end to the other.
- Cut the wire down to about inches – this is your first ear.
- Then, repeat with another 2 pieces of wire.
- Bend each twisted wire over the top of your headband…this will form the rough shape of your mouse ear.
- The easiest way I’ve found to do this is to hot glue one end of the twisted wire at a time to your headband. Make sure to leave a space in the middle of the ears that’s about 2″ wide.
- Then, glue all remaining ends of the ears onto the headband. Don’t worry about what the glue looks like…it will be covered by the flowers!
- Speaking of, now it’s time to add those pretty florals! Pop off the tops of your faux flowers. Make sure to pull or cut off some of the greenery as well.
- Next, use glue to add the green leaves to the middle of your ears. I also recommend adding some around the base of the wire.
- Now it’s time to add the flowers. Pro tip: before gluing, arrange your flowers on your headband first. Once you’re happy with how they look, then go for the glue.
- Check the back of your headband too. You may want to glue in leaves to cover any exposed pieces. You can even add flowers on both sides so you can make a reversible set of DIY Disney Floral Ears
