How To Make Disney Christmas Ears

Sharing is caring!

Do you want to learn how to make Disney Christmas Ears? Whilst it is always great to collect the Disney ears which they sell in the Disney Parks and on the Cruise Line, it is so satisfying to make you own Mickey ears!

Not only are these Disney Christmas ears easy to make, but they are also so much cheaper than the ones that you buy in the parks, which are usually around the $30 mark. Depending upon what materials you use, you can customize them to your own tastes. And you will probably still get quite a bit of change out of $10 – all whilst having fun making them!
