DIY Christmas Mickey or Minnie Mouse Ears!

Something you may not know about Valerie and I, is that each Christmas we trade doing a 12 days of Christmas for our kids. This year it was my turn to do the 12 days for her kids. I put together a fun nativity themed collection for them, and then at the end I wanted to have a present for each of her kids. Since they are going to Disneyland the few days before Christmas, Valerie suggested maybe finding something they could use on the vacation. I thought about shirts, autograph books, and all kinds of fun things. 

Then, I stumbled across this great tutorial from Suburban Mom, on how to make your own Mickey Mouse ears. It seemed easy enough, and I thought the kids would love to have a Christmas version of ears to wear at the park! Be sure to watch her tutorial for full instructions, but I wanted to show you the changes I made to make them all Christmas-y!

First change was to use green felt instead of black. Easy!


 Then I added a little trim around the ears to bring in some shimmer and shine.
I used a red and white polka dot bow instead of pink.


Lastly I added some jingle bells! It's not Christmas without a little jingle!

They turned out so cute! I hope her kids enjoy them and get to wear them while having a blast in Disneyland!
Quick note- we'll be away from the blog for the next little while so we can enjoy the holidays with our families.  We hope you all have a Merry Christmas and/or a Happy New Year!
