Start Wars Mickey Ears
Materials for Making Star Wars Mickey Ears:
Star Wars Material
Felt to Match Material (or black)
Small Star Wars Toy
4″ circle template
Hot Glue & Glue Sticks
Directions For Making Star Wars Mickey Ears:
1.Use the circle template to trace a circle onto the cardboard.
2. Use scissors to cut out 2 circles.
3. Place the circles under the headband and draw another line.
4. Trim the excess and discard, so you have ear shapes.
5. Trace the cardboard shapes onto the felt and cut just inside the line so the felt is a bit smaller than the ear shape.
6. Trace the cardboard shapes onto the fabric and cut out about 1/2″ larger than the outline.
7. Place hot glue onto the cardboard outline and press firmly onto the fabric.
8. Cut 1/4″ slits all the way around the cardboard outline.
9. Apply a small amount of hot glue to the ear, working in small sections, and fold the fabric over onto the other side of the cardboard ear.
10. Once complete, affix the felt to the cardboard to cover it.
11. Now it’s time to attach the ears to the headband. Before you do this, you’ll need to make sure you have enough space for your star wars figure.
12. Set the ears and headband onto the table and make sure the figure will fit in between the two ears.
13. Use hot glue to affix the ears onto the headband.
14. Use E6000 glue to affix the figurine to the headband and let set overnight until dry.
There you have it–how cute are they?!

I may have missed it…. But what did you do with the felt shapes you cut out?
Yes, step 10! I covered the cardboard with them :)
Adorable! I’m not heading to Disney any time soon, so I shared it to my FB page and in a group. I also pinned it so I could find it later. Such an easy craft and a good idea.
