DIY Floral Minnie Ears
Disclaimer: I received the #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Kit for no cost for the purposes of review and party planning. All opinions are very much my own.
In celebration of our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate held on Easter Sunday, I wanted to jazz things up and really get ready for Spring! So, I created these floral Minnie-Inspired ears!
What you’ll need-
- Basic Minnie Ears from this Previous Post – Craft Foam, Glue and Headband
- Hot Glue
- Silk Flowers
- Glitter Fabric Spray
- Optional- Glitter Hot Glue Sticks
First, create the basic Mickey ears from this previous post.
Next, you’ll need silk flowers. I purchased a few bunches from the dollar store.
Pluck the flowers from the stems and set aside.
Next give the flowers a heathy dose of glitter fabric spray-
I actually used an old chafing dish to limit over spraying, and made sure all the flowers were coated by spinning them around with a stick. It may take a few coats to get the desired look. Let dry completely.
Cut ribbon into 8″ lengths. Each spool of ribbon used here cost $.50 at Michaels.
Then add a dab of hot glue to set the ribbon.
Repeat, and glue the ribbon on the other side.
I used a hot glue stick with iridescent glitter embedded into it. It worked great on these pink Minnie ears, but the iridescent glitter did stick out like a sore thumb against black Mickey ears.
Start to glue the silk flowers to the headband.
The purple flowers that I chose had an ugly green grommet in the center of them. I added a dab of iridescent hot glue, and this nicely covered the grommet.
This headband took 3 large silk flowers, but you might need more or less depending on the individual bloom.
After you’re done glueing, trim the ribbons. Make sure you cut the ends on a diagonal, this gives them a more polished look.
Go crazy and create these headbands however you like!
Here’s another set I created-
It was a lot of fun, and really easy to make!
These Minnie ears would be beyond perfect for The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival! If you’re headed to Epcot with these ears, I’d love to see pictures! Tag me on Instagram, Twitter or post to the Pixie Budget Facebook page! 🙂
