 Everything's better with mouse ears!

Today I'm sharing a super easy tutorial is sure to add a little magical flair to your hat collection. Read on to find out how to create your own Mouse Beret!

A Magical Style Staple

Throughout the holidays and the colder season months I've found a style staple of mine has been the ever classic beret! It started with a fun Halloween accessory with my Mickey Mouse Pumpkin inspired creation, then evolved into a holiday Mickey Gingerbread hat. As fun as the two quirky hats were, I wanted to create a simple, yet chic version that could be worn anytime. Enter the DIY mouse beret! I'll show you how to create an easy, no sew magical beret. All you need is a few easy supplies, a glue gun and literally 10 minutes to create your own adorable beret confection. Here we go!

What You'll Need
-Black beret (I found mine on Amazon)
-Black felt
-Hot glue gun

How to put together your Mouse Beret

1. Gather your supplies. Some notes to help with your DIY if you want to go the extra mile: I made my beret in a basic black color, but with whatever color you choose, but try to color/texture match your ear fabric  as much as possible. Also, using a heavier weight fabric like a wool felt will help your ears stay "perky" on your beret.

2. Cut out your "ears". I used a 3 inch round measurement, but you can go bigger or smaller depending on how you want your "ears" to show. Cut off about <1/4in from the bottom in a straight line to make it blend when you glue onto your beret.

3. Position your "ears" onto your beret. Before you glue, I recommend taping the ears and try on your mock set up. Adjust widths/location, if needed.

4. Glue your "ears" onto the top edge of your beret. See photo for the example of where I glued mine.

5. Poof! You've got your easy to create, chic and magical Mouse Beret ready to wear!
