These DIY Mickey ears are perfect character Mickey Mouse ears to make for Disney. From classic princesses to modern characters, you can make your own Mouse ear headbands and hats!
DIY Mickey Mouse Ears (aka Disney Ears)
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, I’ve shared many ways to make your own Mouse Ears. I love to DIY Mickey ears using headbands and hats.
I love the more involved ears with character faces but I’ve also shared Mickey Mouse ears and Minnie Mouse ears the kids can make themselves! They are so focused on when making them and are so proud when they wear them to Disney or on a cruise.
Below you can find the Mickey ears I’ve shared here and if you leave a comment with your favorite character, I’ll try and make those next.

How to Make Your Own Mickey Ears Headbands or Hats
There are a number of ways I’ve made mouse ear headbands. I’ve used Mickey ears templates, bowls, and even made my own cut files and templates for everyone’s favorite characters. In each tutorial below, I go into detail on how I formed the ears so you don’t have to work with random templates (which might not work with YOUR headband or hat).
I’ve also included Mickey ears templates and cutting files for each of my ears that have a lot of detail. You don’t have to be a great artist to make your own mouse ears!
Disney Princess Minnie Ears
We started with the iconic Snow White and are working our way through my daughter’s favorites.
Princess Snow White Minnie Mouse Ears
With the help of free templates, making these iconic Princess Snow White Minnie ears is a snap! They are bright, gorgeous, and are made with inexpensive materials so you can spend more in the parks. ;)
Moana Mickey Ears – coming soon
The water is such a powerful part of the story, so we made it the feature for these Moana Minnie ears. They are going to wow everyone with their florals and I can’t wait to share it with you!
Ariel Minnie Ears – coming soon
Unlike The Little Mermaid ears below, these are made by and for adults!
Star Wars Mickey Ears
Princess Leia Minnie Mouse Ears
The very first Star Wars movie (Episode IV – A New Hope) is my favorite. These Princess Leia Minnie ears only take a few supplies and are amazing in person and I might be wearing them for the Galaxy’s Edge opening when we go this year.
Star Wars Mickey Ears – Chewbacca and Han Solo
One of the world’s most iconic duos, Chewbacca and Han Solo, are represented in these Star Wars Mickey ears. Felt, fur, and some amazing accents come together for this set of Disney ears anyone would love.
Ewok Mickey Ears – coming soon
Friends, I’m not going to beat around the bush – these are my favorite Minnie ears and I cannot wait to share them with you. If you’re like me and grew up on vintage Star Wars, these Ewok Mickey ears are going to blow you away!
Yoda Minnie Ears – coming soon
Pretty amazing, they are. If you’re a fan of Star Wars, I know you just read that in the Master’s voice, right!? These floral Yoda Mickey ears are posable and adjustable depending on your mood.
Deathstar Mickey Ears – coming soon
If you find yourself humming the Imperial March throughout the day, show your support for the Dark Side with these Deathstar Mickey ears. Psst: they are really easy to make, too!
Character Mickey Mouse Ears to Make at Home
If you’re not familiar with a sewing machine, don’t worry – you can still make amazing Mickey Mouse ears that are solid and high-quality. You don’t have to worry about floppy ears using these templates, Disney character cut files, and tutorials.
Lilo and Scrump Mickey Ears
Because it’s no small feat finding these characters in the parks, I made these Lilo and Scrump Mickey ears for my daughter. You can put a bow in between these adorable character mouse ears or use the “Ohana” template I made – they look great both ways.
Angel and Stitch Mickey Mouse Ears
The adorable, large-hearted Stitch is my daughter’s favorite Disney character, so I had to come up with a design that wowed her. These Angel and Stitch Disney mouse ears feature a side view of the adorable aliens joined with hearts. You can also use a bow in between!
Big Hero 6’s Baymax Mickey Ears
I really believe this is one of the biggest silent wins for Disney. Most people don’t mention Big Hero 6 as a favorite Disney movie, but we love it around here. One of the easiest sets of ears to make were these Baymax Mickey Mouse ears. One thing – these were my first EVER DIY Mickey ears and I’ve learned the ribbon should cover the entire headband. :)
Deadpool Mickey Ears – coming soon
Okay, admittedly Deadpool is not a kid’s movie and 99% of the imagery isn’t appropriate for the parks. But friends – he’s my favorite comic book “hero” ever, so I made them for me. That’s right – I made these Deadpool Mickey ears so that I could rock them.
DIY Disney Cruise Mickey Ears
Heading out on a Disney cruise soon? No matter which boat you’re on, these Disney Cruise Mickey ears are going to be some of the most fun you’ll have preparing – it sure beats packing!
Preppy Cruise Mickey Ears
When I sketched these, I had a primary red, white, and blue color scheme. Something kept me from making them, and wow – am I glad I did! These preppy Cruise Minnie ears came out just the way they were supposed to.
Open Rope Cruise Ears – coming soon
When an idea comes together perfectly, you celebrate. And friends, I did a full-on touchdown dance of epic proportions on these when I finally figured them out!
Disney Villain Mickey Ears
Iconic. Scary. Necessary. Where would we be without some of the best-known Disney villains? Below are a few of our favorite Villain Minnie and Mickey ears we’ve made.
Ursula Minnie Ears – The Little Mermaid’s Sea Witch – coming soon
Oh, what a powerful, conniving, and bad little witch she was. These Ursula Mickey ears feature the tentacles of the famous sea witch.
Maleficent Minnie Ears – Sleeping Beauty, Beware – coming soon
These. Are. Impressive. There is no other way to describe the amazing Maleficent Minnie ears. And better yet, they are lightweight, so they won’t get in the way of your Disney fun!
Loki Mickey Ears – Frenemy of The Avengers – coming soon
Much like Deadpool, I’m all for rooting for the guy most people love to hate. Comic relief and well, a darn-impressive helmet, inspired these Loki Mickey ears that will wow everyone.
Mickey Ears Kids Can Make Themselves
We’ve only just started these mouse ears for kids by kids, but so far they are working well. The secret to these is definitely finding the right materials.
As you can imagine, they won’t be heirloom-quality Mickey ears, but the kids are so proud of them. These styles are great for movie nights, Disney birthday parties, and the parks.
Aladdin’s Jasmine Minnie Ears Headband
This is one of the easiest set of Princess Jasmine Minnie ears to put together because of the supplies used. There’s no sewing because it’s built with hot glue, so depending on the age of the child, you might need to help with this.
Dumbo Mickey Mouse Ears Headband
Stiff felt and the cutest little hat make these DIY Dumbo Mouse ears a snap to make. And the feather – oh, the feather. Isn’t that the cutest?
DIY Frozen Minnie Mouse Ears (coming soon)
Oh, these are the sweetest Minnie ears the kids can make! A little puffy paint and a lot of love goes into making these Frozen Minnie ears. They feature an ear for each sister in their quintessential colors and symbols.

Don’t you just think the kids would LOVE to make their own Minnie ears? These Ariel Minnie ears are a perfect craft for the kids to get ready for their Disney vacation.
Mickey Mouse Ear Hats and Ball Caps
The sun can be harsh at both parks, so consider turning any of these DIY Disney ear headbands into Mouse ear hats.
Star Wars Mickey Mouse Hat – coming soon
If you need a ball cap and you have a Star Wars fan, these are your answer. Just like the headband above, this Star Wars Mickey Hat is perfect for the parks.
Rapunzel Minnie Ears Hat – coming soon
