We love making our own DIY Disney Ears for wearing to DisneyWorld and our newest addition are these adorable Aristocats-inspired Marie Ears!
Marie Disney Ears Craft
Why must I wear new Mickey ears everytime we head to the parks?
Because I’m a lady, that’s why.
I catch myself repeating that line from Disney’s Aristocats often – and I just adore Marie. Even when my daughter couldn’t have been less interested in lining up to meet the cutest of the Aristocats, I lined up by myself and gave her a big hug!
(And why, yes – I am wearing an Elsa-inspired dress. My daughter and I went matching as Ana and Elsa because DisneyWorld is an extra mom’s dream.)
These Marie-inspired Ears are a sweet take on the classic Mickey Mouse ears that you will see many park-goers wearing. Some wait until they are at the parks to pick up a pair, but there is a whole cottage industry of Etsy Ear sellers and you will see some gorgeous and unique ears being worn around the parks.
My daughter and I love wearing our own unique ears to the park – and they are a lot more budget friendly than the $22 and up Disney offerings (and the Etsy prices can get up to $65). This headband cost me less than $8 to make and there was plenty of jumbo chenille stem (pipecleaner) left over to make a second pair. (Or you could even make your child a cat tail, if you so desired.)
Materials for Marie Aristocat Headband
- 1 package jumbo chenille stem/fur wire in white
- 1 pink bow
- 1 headband
- 2 sticks hot glue
Tip: if you cannot order/purchase the jumbo chenille stem, gluing white pompoms or white fake fur to a wire circle would work well. You can get thick wire cut to size at hardware stores.
How to Make Aristocats Marie Disney Headband
Start off by forming the white chenille stem (giant pipecleaner) into two 6-8″ circles. (I suggest holding them against your head and looking in a mirror or holding them against your child’s head to determine the size you’d prefer.)
Trim the pipecleaner about 4″ extra to wrap around the headband, leaving a 3″ gap in between the ear loops. Secure in place with glue.
Use hot glue to attach the pink bow to the center of the headband, covering up the blank space between the ears.
Wrap additional pipecleaner around blank areas of the headband, as desired. Ensure that sharp ends are tucked up and away from where they will touch your head.
