I love how cute this set of Christmas Mickey ears turned out! They’re one of the funnest DIY Mickey ears I’ve ever made and I’m definitely wearing them this holiday season.
Christmas Mickey Ears
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we love the holidays, Disney and DIY Mickey ears. I mean, there’s just something about those ears that are so fun to make–and wear. So, of course I had to make a fun set of holiday Mickey ears to go with my Christmas-obsession.
And one of the best parts about this set of Christmas Mickey ears is that they’re so quick to come together. There’s about 10 minutes from start to finish, which is a wonderful craft for me. If you’re ready to make some holiday Micky ears, let’s get started.

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.
How Do I Make this Christmas Mickey Ears?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 1 Black Satin Covered Headband
- 7 Mini Bows
- 1 Strand Chunky Christmas Lights from the Dollar Store
- 1 Strand Pine Bough for a Wreath
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Wire Cutters
- 4-inch Diameter Container or Form
- Wrap one end of the pine bough around a form 4-inches in diameter. I had a cornstarch container that worked well.
- Cut the wreath to barely meet where wrapped around the form.
- Remove the pine bough from the form and wrap the ends of the pine bough onto the headband to one side.
- Repeat to make a second wreath ear.
- Wrap the Christmas lights through the wreath.
- Affix the battery pack in the center on the back side of the wreaths, between them.
- Hot glue the mini bows onto the front of the Mickey ears.
- Cut off several short lengths of the pine bough extra bits and hot glue them on top of the battery pack to further hide it.
