Materials you will need for Floral Minnie Ears:
Materials for Floral Minnie Ears:
- 2 small twig bird nests
- Silk flowers of your choice
- Ribbon of your choice- Choose wide ribbon for the best bow shape
- Black or White headband
- Measuring tape
- Glue gun and glue
- Pencil- choose one that you can see the markings on the headband (I chose a white crayon for the black headband)
- Wire cutters
The first step is to measure and glue the ears:
You want to measure the headband to ensure that you place the “ears” in the correct positions
Measure the the centre of the headband and then make a mark with your pencil. Make two more marks approx. 1.21 inch from the centre on each side. This will be how far apart your ears should be. Next you will glue the ears to the headband ensuring that the centre of the twig circles are the same length apart from the centre. Make sure you lay the ears flat while the glue dries!
Step 2 is to prepare your flowers:
Step 3 is to glue the flowers to the headband:
Make sure you glue enough flowers to make the headband look full! You can overlap the stems on the headband but make sure to trim the flower stems if they hang off of the headband. You will also need to glue some flowers to the twig ears to make them look perfect!
Step 4 is to finish the back of the headband:
Finish the back by adding flowers to cover up the glue and stems from the front!
Step 5: The Bow!
Final Step: Glue the bow to the headband!
Now step into Spring in style!
