I had no clue what I was getting in to, because other than a headband I didn't know how to do anything remotely close to mickey ears.
I had an excess of ribbon spools from a bridal shower I had worked on, so I thought "excellent" in that creepy voice and forged on using those as the supports for my ears.

What you will need:
Empty ribbon spools
Anything you want to decorate with (Ribbon, Paint, Glitter, Etc.)
How I did it:
I traced the two circles plus a strap in between (the width will depend on how wide your headband is, I needed about an inch-inch and a half) so I could secure each ribbon spool to the headband. You'll need one of these for each ear, so make two while you have both ribbon spools to trace around.

So here was a slightly more complicated set of my favorite fur ball Rocket. For the fur I just brushed yarn until fuzzy, and hot glued it on. Then I trimmed it into the right shape.
