Here’s a costume topper inspired by a pair of true Halloween party animals. Fashioned from stiff felt, these distinctive headbands can be whipped up in no time flat, making them great last-minute props. To complete the get-ups, simply have your kids choose outfits from their own wardrobes and provide them with white gloves.

Time: 30 minutes

What You’ll Need

  • Scissors
  • Stiff black felt
  • 2 black headbands
  • Hot glue gun
  • Polka-dotted ribbon

How To Make It

  1. Print and cut out the template. Then use it to cut two black felt earpieces for each headband.
  2. Hot glue the center portion of one of the earpieces to the underside of a headband (about 1 1/2 inches left of the headband center). Then hot glue the rounded ends of the earpiece together, matching up all the edges. Attach the second earpiece in the same way, spacing it 3 inches from the first one.
  3. To complete Minnie’s headband, use the ribbon to tie a big bow around the band between the ears.


Cutting and gluing should be done by an adult.
