Since my birthday is coming up in may and the theme is Hawaii & Disney i decided to make some fitting minnie mouse ears. While i was making them i came on the idea of making a DIY blog post about it with pictures and everything so let's get started!
1. When you have collected everything you need, you will start by cutting 4 pieces of the wire of about 25 CM, do this two times you will need those for the ears. Second you take two of the 4 wires and start twisting them around each other, do this with the left over 2 pieces too and fold it into a ring. Do the exact same thing with the other 4 pieces of wire. Grab your headband and start putting the ears on there at first they will not stay in place at all but that can be fixed by grabbing a long piece of the wool and tie that around the ear and the headband and start twisting it around those two until the ear stays in place. Do this for the second ear too!
2. After you attached the ears to the headband. You start adding the flowers i worked from big to small to big again because i liked it that way. I chose to put the lily on first, on the left ear (right when you put it on). I took a piece of the wire and attached it to the lily and started to wrap it around the headband and i did this for all of the flowers, because i thought that would stay better than glue. for the flowers i used a pink (and yellow since i made three headbands) lily, orchids, some cute pink flowers and white cherry blossom i also used two of the leaves that were attached to the fake flowers to give the headband a little more colors.
3. Finish adding the flowers you like and then go and work on the back i used some sort of thin rope (don't know what it is called in English) and worked away the wires on the back so you couldn't see those anymore. I also added some more flowers with the glue (it will stick because of that rope) and for fun i also added some shells and cute pearls.
4. Then go back to the front and stick some shells and pearls on there too to finish it off! Down below you see two out of three headbands i made and i love the yellow lily because it reminds me of the magical flower from Rapunzel!
I hope you like this DIY and will try to make the cute hawaii ears and if you do please let me know! tag me in it on instagram @chloes_balloon or just send it on our Facebook page!
Lots of love,
