Fabric of your choice. (We chose faux fur because we were basing our ears off of specific characters)
Ribbon of your choice (Again, ours matched the characters we chose)
Headbands (or here)
*Print the template out. There is one labeled for fabric and one labeled for cardstock. Cut out the fabric one and trace it onto the backside of your fabric 4 times. Cut these out and put them in pairs of two. Pin each pair together so the backside is facing out (they will look inside out). Sew around the outside of the ears, leaving the bottom open. Once they are sewn together, flip them right side out through the open bottom.
*Now cut out the cardstock template and trace 2 of those out onto your cardstock. Cut them out and insert them into the ears through the open bottom. These will help keep your ears sturdy.
*Stuff the ears with the cotton stuffing, being sure to get it on both sides of the cardstock and right up around the edges inside. Once the ears are as fluffy as you like, set them aside.
*Measure your headband and cut out a strip of your fabric the same length and about double the width as it. Using hot glue, attach the fabric to the headband. It is easiest to do this in small sections, working from one side to the other.
*Once that is dry, grab the ears again. Hot glue the open bottoms shut. Once the glue is dry, place the ears on the headband where you want them. When you think they look good, hot glue them in place.
The last step is the easiest. Create a bow with your choice of ribbon and attach it to the center of the headband with hot glue. I also glued it onto the ears where they touched to add strength.
