DIY this cute Disney inspired ears headband for your Snow White fan. This easy tutorial will walk you step-by-step to creating the perfect set of ears for your next Disney vacation.
When my daughter was born, people would tell me she looks like Snow White.
Dark hair, blue eyes, pail skin.
How did she get so lucky?!
She still receives this sweet compliment with grace, and truth be told, this always excites me because Snow White is one of my favorite Disney princesses.
I still remember being a little girl and watching Snow White kneel down and say her prayers before going to bed.
This was my favorite part of the movie.
So, it’s no surprise that the Snow White Disney ears headband was my favorite to make (and so far, this headband has been my daughter’s favorite to wear).
Today, I’m going to show you how to make this Disney ears headband (with and without using the Cricut Maker).

The instructions are simple and easy to follow (and involves glitter…lots and lots of glitters).

Let’s dive in!
DIY this cute Disney inspired ears headband for your Snow White fan. This easy tutorial will walk you step-by-step to create the perfect set of ears for your next Disney vacation.
How To Make Disney Ears Headband Without A Cricut:
- Find a cup/glass with at least a 3-inch circumference diameter (or the size you'd like the ears to be).
- Place your glitter craft foam upside down on your table (glitter side down).
- Trace two circles using a pencil and your cup.
- Cut out your circles and keep following along to make your beautiful Disney's Snow White headbands.
How To Make Disney Ears Headband With A Cricut Maker
- Insert two 3-inch* circles into Cricut's Design Space. (*For this tutorial we are using ears 3-inches in diameter. Feel free to make bigger ears if you'd like).
- Set the ears to cut and click "Make It!"
- Select Your Material + Knife Blade
- The first thing you'll want to do is move the white glider rolls to the side. You won't want them getting caught on your glitter craft foam when this runs through your machine (trust me, it's not fun).
- For this project you will need to use the knife blade. I tried the fine point blade and it was barely scratching the surface to the craft foam.
- Once you're ready to cut out your ears, you will need to change your materials in Design Space.
- Select "Browse All Materials", "Craft Foam", and change your tool to "knife blade." (For some reason, when you select "glitter craft foam" it doesn't give you the option to use the knife blade - go figure, right?)
- Cut your circles and begin working on your ribbons.
How To Make The Double Ribbons
- I personally love this tutorial for making my bows (it's so simple to follow along, especially if you've never made bows before). You'll want to use this tutorial for the basic structure of your bows.
- You will need to glue the blue ribbon on top of the yellow ribbon before "closing" the two together.
- First, cut out 2-pieces of yellow and blue ribbon. (The picture shows four yellow and four blue, this is because I was making two headbands - one for the sturdier headband and the second for the nylon headband).
- The larger back ribbon (in our case, yellow) will be 8-inches long.
- The smaller front ribbon (blue) will need to be 6-inches long.
- Don't forget to cut out your 2-inch piece of yellow ribbon.
- Fold the ribbon in half and bring both ends to the middle. Superglue together and do the same until all of your ribbons are secure.
- Place the blue ribbon on top of the yellow ribbon and secure (glue) in the center. Press together for at least 5 seconds (or until the glue starts to secure the ribbons together).
- Repeat until your ribbons are made.
- Take two ribbons and place a dob of glue on the top of one. Secure together and press down until the glue secures both ribbons together.
- Wrap your 2-inch yellow ribbon around both bows and secure in the back (see the above picture for what your final bow should look like).
If You're Making A Sturdier Disney Snow White Headband, Don't Forget To Do This!
- Take your glitter craft foam circles and lay them glitter side face down on the table.
- Put the headbands over the circles and move the headband to where you'd like your ears to lay.
- Trace (with a pencil or pen) and cut the bottom portion of the circle off for an easier gluing experience.
Sturdier Headband or Nylon Headband
- No matter what type of headband you're using, you will want to glue the bow on first.
- Then glue and place the ears accordingly.
- I like to glue the ribbon to the ears for added support (and so the ears don't "flop" around and can maintain their structural integrity).
And there you have your new and exciting Disney ears Snow White headband!
