DIY Spider Web Minnie Ears

Between the chilly weather, the countless decorations, and pumpkin-flavored everything, there’s plenty to love about October. If there’s one thing we’re fans of in particular though, it’s the excuse to give our Minnie Ears a seasonal makeover.

Watching The Nightmare Before Christmas and Hocus Pocus on repeat gave us some serious spider web inspiration, so we’ve decided to add a spooky twist to our Wire Minnie Ears DIY. Whether you’re planning a trip to the Parks this month or looking to get extra crafty for a #FallIntoDisneyStyle photo, this quick craft is a chic way to rep’ your Disney love. Scroll below for some simple steps!diy-spider-web-ears

  1. Cut a length of wire 6-7 inches long and bend it to the shape pictured in figure A. We wrapped ours around a sturdy cup to get an easy, circular shape.
  2. Begin coiling thinner wire around the base of your thicker wire, continuing until the thicker wire is completely coated.This will help ensure that your “spider webbing” stays put.
  3. As pictured in figure B, knot white yarn vertically across your wire ring, beginning at the base to give your spider web a point of origin.
  4. Add horizontal support strings by stringing yarn across your vertical strands and tying a knot at each point of intersection.
  5. Tightly coil white yarn around the entirety of your ring to hide your wire base and knot it at the base. Your first spider web Minnie Ear is complete!


  1. Repeat steps 1-5 to create a second ear and affix to a headband using hot glue, or by wrapping it with more yarn.
  2. With your spider web ears complete, have fun adding any extra hints of Halloween as you see fit. We opted for purple and black ribbons, as well as a tiny, glitter-coated spider.
