Tips to Make Frozen Mickey Ears
- Don’t be afraid to go wild and add a pop of blue if you want. It’s Elsa’s signature color and she would not mind if these FROZEN Mickey ears had a little blue. But, to be honest, I loved the sheer monotone-glitter look. So, if you add that pop of blue–look at it reeeeeally close before you do. Because straight-silvery was pretty awesome.
- Click here to download the free printable crown template. You can try to free-hand the crown, but why bother when I’ve already got it drawn for you?!
- Don’t go overboard on the literal glitter in the bubbles. No, seriously, I know what I usually say: “there’s no such thing as too much glitter” but these Queen Elsa FROZEN Minnie ears are a delicate balance of snowflake and glitter. Too much glitter and the glitter will start to hide the snowflakes, because the glitter sticks to the sides of the bubble. And while that’s cool for a few pieces to be stuck there, you don’t want there to be so much glitter you can’t clearly see the snowflakes.

How Do I Make thESE FROZEN Minnie Ears?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial. If you’re making a DIY Mickey ears playlist on YouTube, here is our Queen Elsa FROZEN Minnie Ears video tutorial.
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Scroll Saw
- Exacto Knife
- Lay headband over oval ornaments and sketch where you want the ears to sit on the headband.
- Cut out the area of ornaments that is unnecessary with the scroll saw (or your chosen cutting implement). Take care to cut off the round protuberance you’d traditionally thread with a ribbon for an ornament.
- Trace the now-open shape of the bottom of the ear onto the silver glitter canvas.
- Repeat with the other ear and cut out both shapes.
- Hot glue 3-5 snowflakes inside each ear. Use as little hot glue as possible.
- Add a portion of glitter (about ¼ teaspoon) to each ear.
- Close each ear with the other half of the clear plastic ornament.
- Make sure the opening is aligned for each portion of the plastic ornament.
- Hot glue the silver glitter canvas cut-out to each corresponding opening of each ear. Trim any excess canvas.
- Add a dab of hot glue to the top or sides of the two ornament halves to make sure it will no longer open.
- Affix each ear to the headband, with about 3-inches between them, or as desired.
- Wrap the silver ribbon around the headband, adding hot glue as necessary to hold it in place. Be sure to place the ribbon in such a way as to hide the bottom of the ears.
- Trace the free printable crown template on the back of the glitter foam sheets twice. Be sure to flip one so that you’re tracing the mirror image.
- Using an Exacto knife, cut out the two crowns. Peel paper backing off the two silver glitter crowns. Press the two sticky sides of the crowns together to form one crown. Trim any excess foam from the crowns.
- Hot glue the crown onto the headband, bending it outward so that it will sit like a crown on the head when the Mickey ears are worn.
