Step Three: Place the headband down on a table and position the template ears a couple inches apart under the headband. Trace the headband onto the template and cut out the half moon shape. We’ll be gluing our ears directly on the headband, so you’ll need to it fit perfectly. (For children, ears should be approximately 1 inch apart. For adults, ears should be approximately 2 inches apart.) Or come up with your own fun way to put the ears on.

Step Four: Trace the ear template onto the foam board 4 times and cut using an X-Acto knife. Please be careful when using the knife.

Step Five: Trace the ear template onto the green sequin fabric twice and cut slightly larger than the trace line.

Step Six: Hot glue 2 layers of foam board together. You’ll have 2 ears with 2 pieces of foam board each.

Step Seven: Spray one side of foam ears with spray adhesive and wrap the green sequin fabric around one side of the ear, just overlapping slightly on the sides. Repeat for the other side and other ear.

Step Eight: Wrap green ribbon around the sides of the ear to cover the fabric “seams”. No need to wrap ribbon around the bottom, half moon part.

Step Nine: Hot glue the fabric covered ears to the ribbon a couple inches apart. Press and hold for 30 seconds until the glue cools and the ears are secure.

Step Ten: Decorate the ears with a red sequin fabric bow, seashells, and pearls.

To create the Mickey heart design in Cricut Design Space

  1. Select the outlined Mickey head from the Cricut design library.
  2. Ungroup the design.

Step One: Download the rainbow art (go to site hyperlinked above).

Step Two: Print rainbow art on printable shrink plastic.

Step Three: Set up the cutting design you’d like in Cricut Design Space. Line up the cut designs with the placement of the color blocks on your printout. Just measure the placement on your printout and then align the cut lines on the virtual mat in Design Space.

Step Four: To cut the shrink plastic you need to just the shrink plastic through repeated cuts. I did 3 cuts at the cardstock setting and then 2 cuts at the poster board setting. The cut pieces then need to be carefully removed. Using the weeding tool is helpful, just be careful not to tear the plastic.

Step Five: Once you have all your plastic cutouts removed, place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and back for 5-10 minutes until completely shrunk down. You’ll know the shrinking is finished when the plastic is no longer bent, smaller but flat. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

Step Six: Add the jewelry findings to create earrings.

Step Seven: Optionally apply sealer to both sides of each earring. I really like the Decoart brand Triple Thick. When it’s dry it looks like a resin, high shine finish… very pretty.

4. DIY Disney Princess Duct Tape Hand Mirror

The best part about going to Disney Land is getting those souvenirs that you get to bring back with you. With this DIY craft, you might be the only one bringing a souvenir into the park.

See more at dollarstorecrafts.com.

What You Will Need

  • Hand mirror, $1
  • Patterned duct tape, $9 (you can get it on Amazon)
  • Scissors, on hand
  • Ribbon (optional), $1 and up

Step One:  Cover the back of the mirror with overlapping strips of duct tape. Since the Disney Princess Duck Tape is a continuous pattern, you can match up the pattern if you want. Leave about 1″ overlapping duct tape around the sides.

Step Two:  Trim the tape around the mirror so the duct tape is an even distance around the outside of the mirror.

Step Three:  Cover the front of the mirror handle with duct tape.

Step Four:  Cut slits into the duct tape around every curved area (I just cut slits into the whole thing, about 1″ apart from each other).

Step Five: Gently wrap the duct tape tabs you cut around the edges of the mirror, smoothing to eliminate creases, wrinkles, and bubbles.

How To Make The Fringe:

Step One:   First, cut a strip of duct tape and fold it lengthwise (long way), leaving about 1/2″ of the sticky part exposed.

Step Two: Cut slits into the duct tape on the folded side. Cut up to the edge of where you folded, but leave the sticky part of the tape intact.

Step Three: Using the sticky part of the fringe, apply the fringe to the edge of the mirror. Because of the fringing technique, these pieces have a bit of give, so they go around the curved mirror pretty easily.

  • Chalk
  • Glue or adhesive (*optional)

Step One: Cover the frame of the chalkboard with the tape that you chose.
