Who doesn’t love Minnie Mouse? With her perfectly round cheeks and iconic bow, the beloved Disney character has been a favorite for many generations. When it comes to dressing up, Minnie Mouse is an easy costume to put together. And with a few simple supplies, you can make your own Minnie Mouse ears! In this tutorial, we’ll show you step-by-step how to make Minnie Mouse ears that are perfect for any costume or party.

What You’ll Need

To make your own Minnie Mouse ears, you’ll need the following materials:

  • 2 sheets of black felt
  • White yarn
  • A hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • A ruler
  • A pencil
  • A template of Minnie Mouse ears (optional)

Step One: Measure and Cut the Felt

Measure and cut two large circles from the black felt. If you’re using a template, trace the shape of the ears onto the felt and cut it out. If you don’t have a template, use a ruler and pencil to draw two 8” circles. Cut the felt using scissors.

Step Two: Cut Out the Centers

The next step is to cut out the centers of the two circles. This will give the felt a more realistic ear shape. To do this, trace a 4” circle in the center of one of the felt circles. Then, cut the shape out using scissors. Do the same for the other felt circle.

Step Three: Glue the Ears Together

Once you’ve cut the felt circles, it’s time to glue them together. Place the two felt circles on top of each other, making sure the centers are aligned. Then, use a hot glue gun to glue the edges of the felt together. Allow the glue to dry before moving on to the next step.

Step Four: Add the Yarn

Once the glue is dry, it’s time to attach the white yarn to the ears. Cut a piece of white yarn that is long enough to wrap around the circumference of the ears. Then, use a hot glue gun to attach the yarn to the felt. Start at one side of the ears and work your way around the circle, gluing the yarn to the felt as you go.

Step Five: Cut Off the Excess

Once the yarn is attached, cut off any excess yarn. Then, use scissors to trim off any loose strands of yarn or felt.

Step Six: Attach the Ears to a Headband

Finally, you’ll need to attach the ears to a headband. To do this, use a hot glue gun to attach the ears to a black headband. Make sure the ears are secure before wearing them.


Making your own Minnie Mouse ears is a fun and easy craft. With just a few materials and some basic crafting skills, you can make a pair of ears that are perfect for any costume or party. So get out your supplies and get ready to make your own Minnie Mouse ears!
