A set of Princess Leia Minnie Ears that you can make at home and wear when you’re visiting Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge!
If you follow me on social media, you may have figured out that I am a giant Star Wars fan. I’m also a big Disney fan, so when Disney took on the franchise and decided to make more movies I could not have been happier.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the latest and greatest to be added to the list. It was everything and more. The one moment I was looking forward to more than anything was getting to see Princess Leia at the very last moment. I was so devastated when Carrie Fisher passed away this past year, so I wanted to make some Minnie Mouse ears in her honor.
I also found these super adorable Lightsaber Chopsticks because I didn’t have enough geeky stuff in my life…NEVER ENOUGH!
Here is what you will need:
Mickey Mouse Headband (I found mine in the party section of Target)
Hot Glue Gun
Measure 30 inches of brown yarn. Layer about 10 pieces of yarn. No need to cut each piece, just make sure they are 30 inches long. With the cut piece at the end, tie all of the pieces together.Twist the yarn together like you would hair for a bun.
Hot glue the knot into the center of the Mickey ear and twist and glue the bun to the whole ear. To make the bow I followed this video to make a double bow. Then, I placed a metallic piece of ribbon in the back of the double bow.
I then wrapped the silver ribbon around the center of the bow and attached it to the headband.
Super simple, super adorable!
