I decided that I was going to make some "mouse ears" for her to wear on the way up. I bought some black felt that had a self-stick side and found some other items in my craft tub to use: black ribbon, red polka dot ribbon, a headband, glue sticks, glue gun, string, scissors and a lighter.
I made myself a template for my mouse ears by just making a circle and added a rectangle to the bottom of the circle to use to attach it to the headband.
Here is a template if you need it. I should about 3" across.

First, I cut out my template, then I traced it onto the back of the felt paper four times.
Next, I cut out the four circles and peeled the paper backing and cut off the circle part and left the rectangles with the paper backing because I don't want those parts to stick together.
I carefully placed one of the ears on top of the other. They will be hard to remove from each other so try to make sure they are even the first time!
Once both ears were done, I peeled the paper off of the rectangles at the bottom and spread them apart and placed them onto my headband where I wanted them. They needed a little glue underneath them to help them to stick to the headband.
