Quick and Easy Puppy Dog Ears for Your Preschooler to Wear
As I may have mentioned before, my almost-four-year old simply assumes that I can make whatever it is she happens to think of at any given moment. Sometimes, of course, it’s impossible. Other times, a little creative thinking and some basic craft supplies get us where we need to be. A couple of weeks ago, she got it in her head that she wanted “doggie ears,” so I came up with a quick and dirty craft to make that a reality.
What you’ll need to make this dog ear craft project:
- Hot glue
Super simple craft materials to make this scrap craft.
At our local dollar store, I can buy 7 plastic headbands for $1. I keep a bunch on hand for all kinds of crafts and costume elements, such as the piggy ears we made last summer.
Draw your ear shape onto your scrap felt. Go for a straight edge on one side, and nice rounded corners on the other. Ours were about 6" long.
Place the headband on your kiddo and mark where you want the ears to go.
Place some hot glue on the headband, and more along the edge of the felt before wrapping the fabric around the plastic and pressing together.
Personally, I would have embellished this scrap craft by adding white or pink felt in the middle, but my daughter insisted this is how she wanted them.
It's really hard to argue with that much cute.
