New EasyPress Mini
Before we move on to the project, allow me to share some infomration on the new Cricut EasyPress Mini! Here are some fun facts of this small but mighty crafting tool!
- Cricut EasyPress Mini is the newest addition to the Cricut EasyPress family, and is a great companion to whatever size Cricut EasyPress you have in your current collection.
- Cricut EasyPress Mini is perfect for small and/or unique projects like hats, shoes, shirt sleeves, cuffs, and pockets. It even works great on stuffed animals!
- Cricut EasyPress Mini offers the same benefits and technology as the Cricut EasyPress 2: even heat plate and easy-to-use heat settings for effortless heat transfers.
I really love the EasyPress Mini, I can’t wait to use it on my Halloween costume and holiday crafts! Now, let’s start the project!
How to make DIY Nightmare Before Christmas Minnie Ears
Start by loading the design in Design Space. Load your Cricut with Everyday Iron On Vinyl and cut the image on your machine per usual. Make sure to mirror the image since you will be ironing.
Weed the images and place Oogie Boogie on the right ear of the headband.
Align Jack Skellington on the left ear.
Set your EasyPress Mini on the medium.
Using slight pressure, iron on the images on both ears. This shouldn’t take but a few seconds. The Everyday Iron On adheres fast to the velvety fabric. Remove the clear transfer sheet to reveal the image.
Repeat on the other ear.
You can stop there or if you want to add a little bit of a feminine touch, add a pretty bow!
Trim a length of striped ribbon and tie a simple bow. Place it in the center of the ears and secure it with hot glue.
And that’s it! Your own DIY Nightmare Before Christmas Minnie Ears made in minutes!
I hope you give this fun project a try! These aren’t just for Halloween Time, these ears are perfect for Disney fans all year long! Be sure to check out all my Nightmare Before Christmas projects for more craft ideas!
