In order to really celebrate in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse fashion…you MUST, MUST, MUST have some ears. Here is an easy tutorial on how to combine your party hats and characters to show off your Mickey Mouse spirit…
- Cardstock (White, Black, Red, Green , Orange, Blue, and Pink with White polka-dots)
- Rubber Cement/Super Glue
- Hole Punch
- Ribbon (Pink with white polka dots, pink, red, yellow, green, black)
Step 1. Cut out pattern pieces and trace on coordinating colored cardstock. (The pieces are labeled with the colors you need for each character.) Make sure you cut out two ears for each mickey and Minnie hat.
Step 4. Glue edges of Large hat base and glue together. Make sure its tight enough that the hole at the top of the hat is as tight as possible. You will need it to keep a ribbon knot inside the hat.
Step 5. Glue large hat base over small hat base leaving 1.5 to 2 inches of the bottom color exposed.
Step 6. For Mickey: Glue ears to front sides of hat. For Minnie: Glue ears to front side of hat and tie pink ribbon in bow and glue between ears (super glue works best). For Donald: Edge blue hat with black ribbon. Glue to front of hat at an angle.) For Goofy: Glue Goofy Hat Ribbon and Brim to Goofy hat base. Glue Goofy hat to hat at an angle.
Step 7. Punch holes in the sides of the small base. Cut ribbon into pieces long enough to reach from your head to under your chin and tie in a bow (at least 12 inches). Tie one end in a knot and lace through hole so that the knot is inside the hat. Repeat on other side.
Step 8. Tie small piece of ribbon in knot and push through the top hole of the hat.
