Foam Mickey Pumpkin Head Ears

Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, it’s the worst kept secret that I love to make Mickey ears. I’ve made them for Disney vacations, parties, dress up, and even just because I had a great idea and wanted to see if I could pull it off! If you’re interested, you can see all of our DIY Mickey and Minnie ears here.

We’re heading to Disney World soon and, as you might know, they throw a little get-together called, “Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party.” If you’re heading there, too, whip up a set of these fun Mickey pumpkin head mouse ears. You can make them with basic craft supplies you’re likely to have on hand. Let’s get started.

Tips When Making Mickey Ears from Foam

I’ve been so many mouse ears, I figure it’s a good thing to share what I’ve learned with you beyond the tutorial. Here are some of my favorite tips when making your own Mickey ears or Minnie ear headbands.

  • Use the tutorial as inspiration and add your own style. I often use what I have on hand but trust me when I say, craft stores and Amazon are FULL of options.
  • Leave off the bow or use any bow material you want or have on hand. Check out our DIY Disney ears page for inspiration.
  • If you can’t find orange sparkle foam or glitter sheets, you can make your own. Grab orange foam, add ModPodge and a lot of orange craft glitter. Finally, seal with a couple of layers of ModPodge and use them. We did this with Ursula’s Minnie ears and it worked out very well.
