Mickey Mouse Headband Craft

Pin It

Here's a cute Mickey Mouse headband that my older daughter made at a festival. Simple and fun to make.

Materials:

  • various colored construction paper
  • ruler
  • scissors
  • black, yellow, and pink plastic tape like electrical tape(optional)
  • stapler
  • rubber band
Directions:

headband:
  1. Cut a strip of black construction paper 21 inches long and about 2 inches wide.
  2. Fold the strip in half lengthwise and glue together for durability. Now you have a 1 inch wide strip.
  3. Fold both ends in about 2 inches. insert a rubber band between both ends and staple the folds closed. Now you have a loop connected by a rubber band.
  4. Staple the Mickey head to the middle of the headband.

Mickey Mouse Face:

  1. Trace and cut out the Mickey head with ears from black paper.
  2. Trace and cut out the face part from peach paper.
  3. For the eyes, nose, and mouth, you have 2 choices; One, simply cut the pieces from colored paper and glue on. But, my daughter got this at a festival as an activity craft. Beforehand, the teachers had laid down strips of colored electrical tape on a cutting surface and pre-cut the face pieces, eyes, nose, and mouth with a craft knife and put on a slick surface like a whiteboard or plastic folder. At the event, the kids simply stuck on face pieces on the pre-made Mickey Mouse headband.
