    First you need two colours of felt . For the inner & outer part of the ears .

Oh I meant to ask, is the basic hair band a plastic or a material one? I've got a plastic one and I want to make one of these. Do you think it will work if I stick material ears to a plastic hair band if I use hot glue??
