80 Disney Mouse Ears to DIY or Buy Before Your Next Disney Vacation


Mickey Mouse ears are an iconic staple in Disney culture. Boarding the monorail first thing in the morning and looking around at all the cool headbands that you don’t have can be pretty disappointing. If you’ve been in this situation, check out this handy little guide for making your own Disney Ear Headbands!

First, snag your own pair of plain Mickey Mouse ears here.

Then, start by adding your “base layer” to your ears with a hot glue gun. This can be anything from felt to sequins to yarn – just make it YOUR OWN. There is NO wrong choice! Be sure to leave a small hole for stuffing if you want your ears to be plump. Click each option below to shop for your supplies.

Printed Fabric via Amazon


Now that you have you selection(s) picked out, now you just need embellishments. These can literally be anything from netting to beads to flowers!

Finally, to finish off your headband, add a bow like one of these:

And that’s it! Now you’ve got yourself some brand new ears!

    How do you place the fabric so it lies smoothly? Do you use one piece for the whole ear or one for the front and back? I’ve tried making ears before, but struggle with covering them properly!

    05 . 09 . 2017

      Hi Lizi!

      Depending on the fabric, you may need to cut small slits or use one piece per side of the ear.

      Good luck! 🙂
