What you’ll need

  • 3 peel and stick foam sheets (black, red and yellow for Mickey or Pink, Black and white for Minnie)
  • Pencil
  • Elastic string
  • Scissors

How to make it

  1. Use a pencil to trace the visor’s shape (similar to a moon) on the yellow and red foam sheets or pink and white sheets. Use scissors to cut the foam.Cutting foam sheets
  2. Use a pencil to poke holes in each corner of the visor shape for the elastic string to pass through it when it’s ready.

  3. Cut out 4 circles of about 3 inches in diameter for the ears, as well as 4 small rectangles, as shown in the next picture.

  4. Remove the paper on the back of the ears. And use the small rectangles to anchor the ears to the visor.

  5. Stick two of the circles together, with a small rectangle poking out from in between them to use it as an anchor to the visor.

  6. Stick together the two visor shapes (yellow and red foam) and cut out the excess foam, if any.

  7. Use the elastic string to finish the back of the visor, by letting it pass through the holes and making a tight knot. And voilá, a cute Mickey Mouse craft that is also useful!
