D.I.Y. Cat Ear Headphones

Ever since I saw this item of the day on HelloGiggles, I knew I couldn’t rest until I had a pair of earphones with ears in my life. I thought it would be fun to try and make my own, and that’s when I came up with this fun and easy D.I.Y. You need barely any crafting skills to make these and the effect is extremely satisfying. Leave a comment if you decide to make some and I hope you like my D.I.Y!

Step One: Fold your felt in half and draw the shape of your ears onto one side of the felt. I made mine with cat ears, but you could do anything from a mouse to a dinosaur (actually, I don’t think dinosaurs have ears).

Step Two: Cut out your ears, making sure you cut both sides of the felt. You should now have a shape that looks a bit like this:

Step Three: Sew on any other parts of the ear you want. I added little white bits to the middles like this:

Step Four: Wrap one ear around your headphone, making sure to pull it tight. Sew around the edges using a tight blanket stitch (you can find out how to do this on YouTube) or just a normal running stitch.

Step Five: Do the same with the other ear.

Step Six: Pop your headphones on, wack on some tunes and show everyone how awesome you are.

    I’m sharing this again for my friend Kimmy. Plus I think a couple of steps need to be added. One wrap piece of felt around the middle of the headphones. Then, use glue to affix the ears to the felt. The ears will stand up instead of sliding forward or back. If you aren’t a sewer, you could use glue to make the two sides of the ears stick together.

    I loooove this tutorial! i made them out of “moosgummi” (i don’t know the english word for this, I’m from Germany) and covered it with white fabric so the pink moosgummi can be seen through the fabric, it looks awesome ♥ :3 oh an mine have exactly the same pink shade as yours, just another brand of headphones^^ (sorry for my bad english^^)
