Snow White Minnie Ears Tutorial
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we love crafting for Disney. From our popular princess costume DIYs to our fun Disney family movie nights, we sure do love that mouse and his friends.
These Snow White Minnie ears are going to impress everyone. They are easy to make and use basic craft supplies – like, seriously basic! First, let’s decide how you’re going to make them. My requirements for ears are:
- lightweight – I’m making these for my daughter and I and some park ears are just too heavy for her.
- water-resistant – Yes, it rains at Disney (the horror) and the felt helps absorb some of the moisture.
- easy – I am making quite a few of these for ourselves and family and I didn’t want to spend years on them.
- no-sew – Although I know how to sew and will likely share a few sewn ears with you, I have a lot of requests for no-sew items (like this mermaid costume).

How to Make Snow White Mickey Ears
I draw each and every design, albeit a quick sketch with the use of my daughter’s Crayolas. Below is how I envisioned this Snow White ears headband and I think I was able to hit the mark.

Cricut, Silhouette, and Cutting Machine Users
If you have a Cricut or Silhouette machine which cuts felt (or bonded felt), this is going to take you no more than about 30 minutes from start to finish. It’s a super fast Cricut Disney craft. Scroll to the tutorial and download the free files. Size the ears (as a group) in the software to match your base and cut BUT do not cut the background as you’ll need to size that for the foam core ears you cut.
I have included Snow White SVG files but have also shared the EPS, DXF, and PNG files for use with machines other than Cricut.
For Those Without Cutting Machines (Hand Cut)
But what if you don’t have a Cricut or Silhouette machine and can’t use the Disney cut files? Don’t worry, I’ve got you covered! Download the PNG files into a program (Word, Pages, PowerPoint, etc.) and size them down to your ears. Just like above, do not cut the background pieces until you’ve cut your foam core ears.
That’s it. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
Tips for Making a Snow White Minnie Mouse Headband
I’ve now made 5 of these Mickey or Minnie Mouse ear headbands with this method, and I need to share with you what I’ve learned. It was a LOT of trial and error to figure out what worked best with this style.
- The directions below might seem intense, but watch the full video – it’s really easy to make these. I can make a set in about 30-minutes after the felt pieces are cut.
- If you want to save time, start with premade ears. It reduces hands-on time but they won’t be as sturdy.
- Make a template for your headband. When I changed headbands, I had to adjust the curve of the bottom. See the video to see exactly how to get this right every time.
- Go slow when cutting the foam core. It’s best to use a razor blade or craft knife, not scissors – they won’t be as accurate because it will bend the foam core.
