I 3D printed my own Mickey Mouse ears. The 3D printing of Mickey Mouse ears is actually quite easy, I linked the files I made and used for these Frozen Disney Ears below.

To go to the Frozen Celebrations in Disneyland Paris, I wanted to make my own Frozen Mickey Ears. I made the design myself, based on the new Frozen film, I really wanted to create an Elsa feeling. I myself am very happy with my Disney ears from Elsa. You can copy them but not sell them, and if you share them on social media I want you to make a mention with link and tag to this blog and to my Instagram account. Lots of fun and enjoyment.

3D Printed Mickey Ears Frozen DIY

 

Make supplies for Frozen Mickey Ears

3D printed Mickey Ears

  • Print the ears twice..
    • I have used the normal standard settings, of course you can always improve the quality and work better.
    • You have to adjust the dimensions, I set my x to 100 mm and the y adjusts itself automatically. Then I set the z (thickness of the ears) to 10 mm.
  • Sand the ears so that they are nice and smooth, the smoother the better! Now you can paint the ears!
  • Take the diadem and position the ears, mark this so that you know where the ears should go.
  • Apply the glue to ear by ear and always press very well and wait as long as the glue says instruction.
  • In the meantime, make the bow. Take your piece of fabric and cut out a rectangle of 17 cm by 10 cm, fold double over the short side, sew it up and make a bow with a long strip of fabric.
  • Glue the bow with the glue gun exactly in the middle of the diadem between the two ears.

3D printed Mickey Ears – Make them with resin

I thought it would be a cute idea to make these ears in resin. This is how I did it!

You need these materials:

  • Material for molds
  • Epoxy resin

That is how you make them:

  • Print the ears twice..
    • I have used the normal standard settings, of course you can always improve the quality and work better.
    • You have to adjust the dimensions, I set my x to 100 mm and the y adjusts itself automatically. Then I set the z (thickness of the ears) to 10 mm.
  • Sand the ears so that they are nice and smooth, the smoother the better! Now you can paint the ears or you can make a mold out of it to make resin ears.
  • Make a mold with the ears, I myself did this in a hard plastic mold to bake bread. I use this silicone for molds. This should dry for 12 hours.
  • Mix Epoxy Resin like the proportions, mix in a color pigment, glitter, … whatever you want! Pour these mixes very carefully into the mold and this should cure for 24 hours.
  • Now you have resin ears, which you can possibly sand and some varnish for extra shine.
  • Take the diadem and position the ears, mark this so that you know where the ears should go.
  • Apply the glue to ear by ear and always press very well and wait as long as the glue says instruction.
  • In the meantime, make the bow. Take your piece of fabric and cut out a rectangle of 17 cm by 10 cm, fold double over the short side, sew it up and make a bow with a long strip of fabric.
  • Glue the bow with the glue gun exactly in the middle of the diadem between the two ears.
