DIY Mickey & Minnie St. Patrick’s Day Headbands

Topped with a leprechaun hat (properly cocked to one side, of course) and a bright green shamrock bow, these Mickey and Minnie headbands are earmarked for young Disney fans to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day in fine Irish style.

What You’ll Need

  • Scissors
  • Stiff black felt for the ears
  • Regular felt scraps (yellow and two shades of green)*
  • Low temperature hot glue gun
  • Small piece of thin cardboard or cardstock (for the Mickey headband)
  • Green pipe cleaner (for the Minnie headband)
  • Thin black headband(s)

How To Make It

1. Print the template and use the pieces to cut out shapes from the specified types and colors of felt.

Note: It’s easier to cut out the center of the belt buckle if you snip through one of the corners, as shown. The cut will be hardly noticeable once the buckle is glued to the hat.

2. Working with one ear piece at a time, apply a line of glue across the center of the connecting band (specified on the template piece). Stick the glued portion to the underside of the headband, positioning it about 1½ inches left of the center point of the band. Now glue the two round ear flaps together, as shown. Attach the second ear piece to the headband in the same manner, this time positioning it an equal distance right of center (you should end up with about 2½ inches between the two ears).

3. For Mickey’s hat, first glue a small rectangle of cardboard atop one of the pieces, as shown (this will make the hat stand upright once it is attached to the band). Now glue the second hat piece atop the first, sandwiching the cardboard between them. Fold the hatband around the hat and glue it in place. Then stick the buckle to the center of the hatband.

4. To attach Mickey’s hat to the headband, glue the left edge of the brim to the left ear. Then glue the center of the brim to the headband. Do not attach the hat to the right ear — otherwise, the hat will buckle each time your child puts on the headband.

5. For Minnie’s shamrock bow, glue a 3-inch pipe cleaner stem to one of the felt shamrocks, as shown. Next, glue a 2-inch length across the lower leaves. Glue the matching shamrock piece on top.

6. Bend the leaves slightly forward to make the completed shamrock look more dimensional. Then glue it to the base of one ear.

Show off your Mickey side this St Patrick’s Day!

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
