Mulan Mickey Ears Ornament Crafts
What You Will Need:
- Cardstock or Construction Paper (cardstock would be better because it is a heavier material). For Mulan, you need the following colors: dark blue, peach, dark green, pale pink, dark red, and pale green.
- Glue stick (like kids use in school)
- White school glue (like Elmer’s glue)
- Optional: paper plate or small tray, paintbrush
- Optional: Black marker or sharpie (for tracing)
- Scissors with sharp edges (so, adult scissors, not kid scissors)
- Glitter in the following colors: green and red
- String or Ribbon; preferably a basic color like black or white.
- Mulan Ornament Craft Template (see below)
How to Make the Mulan Ornament
- Download and print out the Mulan Mickey Head ornament template. Before you print, check out the instructions on the PDF download. If you choose, you can print each page of the template out on the corresponding color for each of the different parts of Mulan’s dress.
Alternative: You could also print out the PDF template on white paper. Then cut all the pieces out, trace them on the color paper needed, and then cut them out again. This method does involve more steps (and twice as much cutting), but if you can’t figure out how to print the template one page at a time on colored cardstock, this might be an easier option for you. (to be fair, that’s the option I choose. ha!) The only part of the ornament this would not work for is the flower in Mulan’s hair.
Once you have cut out all the pieces set them aside.
Now let’s start assembling the Mulan ornament!
First, take the two smaller blue circles and glue them to the back of the larger tan circle. These are the Mickey Ears. You might want to use the Elmer’s glue (as opposed to the glue stick) for this step… just to ensure the ears stay stuck.
Next glue on Mulan’s yellow dress piece, followed by the blue dress piece as shown below.
After the two base dress pieces are glued on, glue on the red belt, the yellow pants piece, and the green collar piece as shown below. Finally, glue the pink flower to the top left center of the ornament base. Use the photo as a guide.
Time to Add Glitter!
Add glitter! So, there are two options with the glitter. You could glitter your pieces before you glue them together or you could glitter your pieces after the cardstock elements are already glued together. Either way, you will want the glitter to dry completely before you move onto the next step.
Pro tip: You don’t want to use too much glue or the glitter will be clumpy. You also don’t want to use too little glue or the glitter will not stick to the cardstock evenly. Definitely use Elmer’s glue (or glue like that). Best crafting practice: squirt glue onto a plate or tray and then use a small paintbrush to paint the area you want to add glitter to.
Then, sprinkle the glitter onto the area, shake off the excess, and let it dry.
For Mulan, add red glitter to Mulan’s sash. Then add green glitter to the collar of her dress.
Finally, flip over the ornament and add a bit of white school glue to the back. Loop a piece of string or ribbon and glue in place.
Allow the glue to dry completely.
