Minnie Mouse (or Mickey Mouse) Headbands

Do you love the Minnie Mouse Headbands we are wearing in our Disney Party Planning video?  We do!  I am so thankful to have found the most AMAZING tutorial, both in written and video form, for making these over at The Surburban Mom!  I am not going to begin to try to replicate it, I'm just going to send you over there and let Jen teach you how to do it.  I know there are people you could purchase from on ebay or etsy but these really are not difficult at all and the supplies are not expensive.  This is a totally perfect DIY that creates a finished product that your little ones (and YOU) will love.

Here is what you'll need:
  • Plastic headbands - I used ones similar to these
  • Black felt - buy it by the yard at the craft store
  • Foam Sheets
  • Hot glue gun and lots of glue
  • Pink polka dot ribbon
  • Chalk
  • Marker
  • Ribbon or rubber bands

Here is what you'll do:
  • Go check out The Suburban Mom's tutorial and follow along!  She will give you more details about the supplies you'll need as well as the process.

The only thing I did differently with our headbands was the bows.  Rather than securing them with ribbon, I used small rubber bands, the kind you might have in your Rainbow Loom kit.  I just wrapped one around the middle and then slipped it over the headband.  It's probably not quite as secure but I have plenty of rubber bands and can fix it if needed.  I'm all about using what I already have on hand (in case you hadn't figured that out about me yet)!

Once you've mastered these, you will become a themed-headband-a-holic like me!  I can't plan a party without creating a themed headband now!  Stay tuned to see what else we've made following this general outline.

I can't wait to see what you create!
