Check out the newest theme over at My Sheri Crafts. It's all about 3D! Nothing flat, according to DT sister, Sarah. So, I'm taking this opportunity to showcase my newest addiction... making my own Mickey ears. That's right! I started making my own Mickey ears in January 2016. I participate in a lot of runDisney events and they always have a theme. As I write this blog, I'm actually on a plane to Disneyland to run the Tinkerbell 10K / half marathon challenge this weekend. This is my third Mickey ears (I will share the first two I made when I get back home).
I started off with one of those headbands you get at JoAnn's for $1 each and remove the fabric covering (you end up with a thin plastic headband ready to be covered). I take two balsa wood circle shapes from the wood aisle and clip a little portion of each so it can sit flat on the head band. All 3 pieces are then covered with felt. I just use black felt because I actually like it to be black ears. Once you get the black band/ear base... it's time to decorate!
I got the Tinkerbell cake topper from our local grocery store bakery. I took a couple of 2" silk flowers and layered them for her to sit on. The flourish and small paper butterfly in the back are Cheery Lyn die cuts. The small leaves are Sizzix die cuts. The flowers are all a mixture of silk, plastic, and rolled paper die cuts. The metal butterflies were part of some old embellishment pack I got from Michael's. I also brushed all the flowers with glitter glue to add more sparkles!
Thanks for looking!
