DIY Floral Mouse Ears

Lately, I have seen so many pictures on Instagram of floral mouse ears. Being a crafty kind of person, I thought I would try my hand at it. My first stop was to YouTube for some tutorials and they were all pretty similar. I decided to keep it simple and got some great results. This is a very easy craft to do and it takes minimal equipment to make. In fact if you are a crafter you may have a lot of these things around your house. I had to purchase flowers and it happened that fall colors were in season at Joann’s which is perfect for my November vacation.

 

Items needed:
Headband
Small piece of cardboard
1 piece of 9×12 felt
Flowers
6 cotton balls (or polyfill)
Glue gun

Step 1:
Using a glass to make circles on the cardboard. Cut out the circles and use the headband to cut the bottom part of the circle so that it will lay flat on the headband.

Step 2:
Cover the cardboard with felt and glue down. Cut around the felt making an opening at the bottom.

Step 3:
Stuff the front of the felt with some cotton balls to give it some volume. Take an additional piece of felt and glue it down around the edge of the ear.

Step 4:
Glue the ear onto the headband and then start adding flowers. I started on the inside edges and worked my way around. Once the front is dried start on the back and finally cover the edges.

Viola! You have your own floral mouse ears! You will find these are easy to customize with a bow, small LED lights, or even changing the placement of different colored flowers.
