    Use these to trace onto the cardboard box. Cut out a second set of ears.
    • If desired, use pink markers to create an inner ear area and color it in completely pink. This step is optional but adds dimension to the ears.

    Glue the ears to the cardboard box card. This will strengthen them in the wind and as the wearer walks about.

    Either glue or staple the ears to the band approximately 5 inches away from each other. Glue or staple the band into a circle that slips easily onto the head of the wearer but isn't too loose. It's now ready to wear.

  • To jazz up the ears, use glitter, sequins, buttons, ribbon, etc.
