Easy DIY Minnie-Inspired Floral Headband

Hi There!

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
  • Ribbon
  • 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.

Keep glueing!

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.
