Frozen Mouse Ears
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we spend a lot of time letting it go, because, frankly, that’s what my daughter sings ALL.THE.TIME. It’s a good movie, so I don’t mind, and let’s face it – it’s one of the best Disney soundtracks. When she asked to make some Frozen mouse ears, I didn’t even hesitate to say “yes” to my little one’s request.
If you’re ready to let it go and make some Anna and Elsa Minnie ears with your kids, well, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Anna and Elsa Minnie ears
- Be careful with the hot glue gun while the kids are making these. We use a lo-temp gun most of the time.
- Take a few minutes to let the kids practice drawing with the fabric paint on a piece of paper, or even a piece of scrap felt. Anna’s dress embroidery is not as easy as it looks. If you’re letting the kids do it on their own, you might draw out a pattern with chalk on the felt for them first.
How Do I Make this Frozen Mouse Ears?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial and if you have any questions, please let me know in the comments section.
- Comfortable headband
- Black, Dark blue felt
- Green, blue, purple/pinkish craft paint
- Icy blue glitter foam sheet
- Silver bead trim
- Gold bead trim
- Snowflake buttons or stickers
- Cardstock or cardboard
- Hot glue gun/sticks
- Something with which to make a circle (a wide-mouth mason jar lid)
- Trace your circle on the back of the glitter fabric and the felt, then cut them out BUT also cut a small 1” x ½” tab on the bottom of each piece. This will be where you attach the ear. You will need two pieces for each ear – 2 dark blue and 2 glitter icy blue.
- Cut one black circle using the same template so that the size matches the ears, then cut it into a “bodice” shape like Annas gown. Essentially it is just a stretched-out heart shape with the rounded parts squared off, Hot glue it down to one of the dark blue felt pieces.
- Practice with the fabric paint on paper until you or the kids are comfortable using it. Then, create a design similar to the one on Anna’s gown with green, purple, and blue fabric paint. The kids can be as true to the outfit or create their own design. Set the bodice piece aside to dry.
- Glue snowflake buttons or stickers to one of the icy blue glitter circles. Then glue the two circles together - do not glue the tabs yet.
- Once dry, repeat and glue the two dark blue felt pieces together, leaving the tabs unglued.
- Open the tabs on the ears, apply a generous amount of glue, and press the open tabs onto the headbands. Hold until the glue is hardened and cool. Repeat with the other ear.
- Run hot glue a little at a time around your ears and press gold bead trim onto Anna’s side and silver bead trim on Elsa’s side. This will finish off your edges and also add a pop of shine.
