Minnie Mouse Veil Headband

My best friend's wedding theme was Disney. So I thought it would be fun to make her some Minnie Mouse ears for her bridal shower. That ended up falling through do to lack of time, so I decided to make them for the rehearsal dinner. I was also playing around with the thought of making Mickey Mouse ears for the groom, but decided that would be too hard to accomplish.

In my research, I came across the blog, "The Suburban Mom" that had a cute tutorial for making Minnie ears. Bingo! Awesome tutorial for sure!

I tried changing it up by using ribbon to wrap the head band, but found out felt definitely made a cleaner and easier way since I was using my hot glue gun. I added a bird cage veil and a bow in the wedding color purple. So fun! I think Minnie Mouse would approve.

While in the process of making the Minnie Mouse ears, I went to my local craft store to pick up a few needed items. I decided Mickey Mouse ears would be way too hard and impossible, so I nixed that idea. I mean where in the world would I find a top hat? Then it happened, I randomly came across a small black top hat. There it was looking at me and telling me I'm a wimp for not making an attempt. What is Minnie without Mickey? 

Reasoning with myself, I decided that if I failed no one would know any different. So I decided to give it a go. Not sure how in the world I did it, but it actually turned out pretty good! The ears were the hard part, because I had to shape it to fit the contour of the hat. I ended up not being able to hide the hot glue on the back of the ears, but decided that durability was more important than the back looking perfect. 

I just love it when a plan comes together!
