DIY Bear Ears Headband for Halloween

DIY Bear Ears Headband Tutorial: Child at Heart Blog

I made my Mama Bear t-shirt the other day and since I’m wearing it for Halloween, I needed some great little bear ears to go with it!  These were very easy to make but be warned, cutting the black fur made it look like we shaved a bear on my bedroom carpet!  I might do this on the table next time!  🙂

First I got my small black headband and drew the ears the size I would want for my template.  I attached a template with this tutorial if you just want to use mine.

Bear Ear Template:  Click Here to Print the Template for Four Ears…print on standard sized cardstock so the ears will stand up straight and be the right size!

Then I cut out four ear pieces and two very small rectangle pieces to attach the ears on each side.  I attached the ears to the rectangle with hot glue and then I set them aside.

I bought this black craft fur from Hobby Lobby and it was in the same aisle where all of the craft pipe cleaners are.  This makes a big mess so I would recommend doing this over the trash can or at least on the table…not on the carpet like me.  🙂

I hot glued the four pieces to the white cardstock…should have used black cardstock because I had to get a Sharpie marker and color on a few white spots.  Then I folded each set of ears in half and hot glued them to the headband.

Next, I cut a long strip to cover the tops of each ear.  Just hot glue this on and you can’t see any of the cardstock.

I clipped a little gold bow in mine for Halloween but if you are making these for a boy, leave that out.  These would make a fun addition to a bear costume or just a fun addition to a dress up box!  I love them with my MAMA bear shirt I made and can’t wait for Halloween!

Cole took this picture of me at the end of our little photo shoot…I already see potential!  🙂

While we were in the store, Cole decided he needed red bear ears so I bought those GIANT pipe cleaners and just hot glued them to another head band.  He loves them!  (Cole’s shirt is from Emmi and Dean.)

      I know he loves taking pictures but I need to buy him a WAY less expensive camera to play with! 🙂
