Disney: Mickey Pirate Ears for Disney Cruise

Pirate Mickey Mouse Ears Tutorial copy

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me. The Disneyland ride, Pirates of Caribbean turns 50 on March 18th, 2017! In honor of one of our favorite rides, I thought I’d show you how to make Mickey pirate ears. I made them for pirate night on our Disney Cruise and we received so many compliments on them. Pirate night was our most favorite night on the cruise ship, especially watching the fireworks show from the ship in the middle of the ocean! Get craftin’, buckos.

I'm Vanessa and it's my mission in life to spread my love of hot glue guns and glitter to others. I suffer from craft ADHD, regularly working on at least 10 projects at the same time and my craft room looks like a tornado hit it. My first craft book, Party in a Jar, was published in 2014. I look forward to crafting with you!
