  • How to make an ear / horn. Kitty Cat Ears - Step 1
    Step 1

    Start by drawing out a template of your ear, make sure to make it slightly wider so that you can curve it like a real cat ear. The measurements for my ear were 3.5" x 3.5" x 4.5".

    Cut a length of wire (if you're using my measurements, cut it at 12"). Bend the wire, in the middle, at a 90" angle. Lay it on top of the ear and bend the two tails, so that they match the curves of the ear.

Wow! I love this idea very much =3 how do you keep the ears from dangling or moving? Hair clips and stuff always end up moving or falling out on me v-v
