Tips to Make DIY Christmas Mouse Ears

  • First, get everything you need at the Dollar Store. You might not think you can, but I did. Yeah, this is a set of Dollar Store Mickey ears and I’m proud of it!
  • Be sure to leave a little extra wire on the end of the lights near the battery pack. If you don’t leave a little slack, you might have trouble positioning it to be hidden behind the wreaths. So, just keep that in mind when you’re wrapping the lights around the wreath.
  • When you place the battery pack on the back of the Christmas Mickey ears, be sure to leave yourself space to turn the switch on and to get at the screw to replace your batteries. Think practical.
