Minnie Mouse loving, craft enthusiasts, I’ve got the craft for you! In less than 15 minutes I created a very simple, very adorable rolled felt Minnie Mouse headband. Using a short list of supplies and zero sewing necessary, you’ll have an awesome headband for your mini Minnie. Imagine the possibilities: Minnie Mouse birthday party favors, matching headbands for Baby and friends’ first Disneyland visit, a collection of headbands with different colored bows to match all of your little girl’s outfits! Once you see how simple it is to create, you’ll probably make one for yourself!
Mini Minnie Style
You’re minutes away from creating a super simple, super adorable Minnie Mouse headband. Click through to see the easy steps!
What you’ll need:
1 – 1/2 in. x 18 in. black, felt strip
2 – 1/2 in. x 9 in. black, felt strips
1 – headband
1 – 4 in. pink (or red) grosgrain ribbon
Begin by rolling the longest felt strip first. Apply a thin line of hot glue along the very center of the strip. Immediately roll tightly and hold the finished circle between your fingers for a couple of second to set.
Repeat step 1 with the two shorter felt pieces. These will be the ears.
Attach the two ears to the head (the first rolled piece of felt). For the best look, make sure you glue the seams of the ears onto the head piece.
From a separate piece of felt, cut out a Mickey silhouette to attach to the back to strengthen the overall piece. Glue this to the back of the finished head and ears.
Tie your ribbon in a knot. Then notch the ends of the ribbon to create the look of a bow.
Hot glue the bow onto the head. Just one drop of glue will do! I choose it attach it off to the side. You can glue it directly centered above the head if you wish.
Decide on the placement that you would like, then glue the Minnie Mouse head directly onto the headband.
Using a small felt piece, hot glue it to the inside of the headband to strengthen the hold of the Minnie Mouse head to the actual headband.
Done! That’s it!
