I want to make some cute Mickey Mouse ears like these:
I have the template to make the ear headbands, its affixing the rhinestones I’m scared about. if you’ve done a rhinestone covered anything I’d love it if you could give me some tips and answer some questions
1. WHat sizes shuold I use to ensure maximum coverage?
2. Is there a pattern or way that helps with maximum coverage? (Starting in the center and going out, spiral, ect) What worked for you
3. What glue would work best on felt?
How would I go about doing the names? My idea is to take a printout of a name in a font I like and glue the rhinestones to it, then glue THAT to the ears when they are dry.
3. Should I do the name on top of the rhinestone’d headband (Rhinetones on Rhinestone action :P) or Do the Names in Black and use a different color arround them?
Thanks for the tips ladies!

How many are you planning on doing? Rhinestones is going to be such a lot of work.. I would suggest mod podging glitter on instead..

@leafgum: The ears would be made out of felt, would glitter stick to that? Any ideas on what to use instead of felt? I don’t think foam would hold up too well.
I plan on making 4

E6000 glue is what I used for my shoes and sticks really well. Not sure how it would stick to felt, but I would imagine it would work really good. I strassed my wedding shoes for my upcoming wedding. :o)

If you want to cover the ears with rhinestone I wouldn’t recommend felt…maybe plastic or plain old cardboard. The E6000 works great as JJsGirl_09 mentioned.
From the photo it looks as if they used one size of rhinestone, and my suggestion would be to start glueing from the outter edge and move toward the center.
Hope this helps!
