It’s graduation season and many birthdays are coming up. That means time to come up with gift ideas.

After going to Disney World and buying more Minnie Ears to add to my collection, I was inspired to create my own Money Minnie Ears for gifts.

Homemade gifts are always special, but even better if those gifts are literally made out of money!

Money Disney Minnie Ears Supplies

Here’s what you’ll need

Mickey Mouse Ears Headband – I found some padded Mickey Ears on Amazon and they were perfect!

Cash – Various dollar bills are needed for this gift.

Push Pins – Sewing pins with a ball on the end make it easy to push into the dollar bills. 

Twist Ties – This will be how you attach to a few of the items together.

How to Make Minnie Ears from Money

Decide how much money you want to give. Break it down into one dollar bills, five, ten or twenty  dollar bills. I used 1 twenty dollar bill, 2 five dollar bills and 10 one dollar bills for my ears.

Begin by wrapping a one dollar bill around an ear and carefully pin it to the back of the ear. Be mindful not to let the pin go all the way through the ear. 

Take a larger bill, such as a five or ten dollar bill and cover the rest of the ear. Make sure the front of the ear is smooth and contains no pins.

Repeat the process on the other ear.

Wrap bills around the headband. Secure with push pins on the outside of the band. Make sure none are sticking out of the headband.

How to Make a Bow with Money

Make a Minnie bow by using all of the bills you have left besides one. You’ll need that extra bill for the bow later.

Stack the bills and wrap a twist tie around the middle. Fluff out the bills that make the bow.

Fold the last bill into a strip and wrap it around the middle of the bow. Secure with a push pin.

Slide a twist tie under the strip in the middle back of the bow and attach to the top of the mouse ears headband. Trim the twist tie with scissors. 

Arrange the bow to your liking and secure the bottom of the bow on each side of the headband with more push pins.

Try your money Minnie ears on as a test, then wrap your gift!
