This method was a quite a convenient way of putting together a sturdy pair of Minnie Mouse ears, it even offers alternatives for people with different head sizes by suggesting an adjustable template of allowing at least an additional 2 inches of black felt so that you can completely cover the headband. It does require quite a lot of preparation though as you will need to cut your own foam circles and black felt dumbbells.
