DIY Yoda Ears

Last weekend our local library hosted a Star Wars event. The boys wanted to dress up and since Yoda (who they insist on calling "Master Yoga") is their favorite character, we whipped up some green pointy ears.

pouty lips and dimples! seriously, my heart could explode!

Our Supplies: an old orange juice carton, scissors/x-acto knife, green acrylic paint, paint brush, pipe cleaners, & hot glue

Step 1: Use scissors or an e-xato knife to remove corners from the bottom of the orange juice carton - you need two corners per set of ears.

Step 2: Paint inside and outside of corners, allow to dry. 

Step 3: Twist two pipe cleaners together and shape ends into circles to go around child's ears. Pipe cleaners should be sized to fit comfortably around the back of child's head. 

Step 4: Hot glue triangles to circle parts of pipe cleaners. Also adding glue to the top of pipe cleaners ensures that they will stay in place. 

Step 5: Once glue has dried, slip pipe cleaners around the back of the head and over the ears. 

Little Lady and I stayed home and napped instead of going to the event. Jeremy was very impressed with all the work they put in to it - our library is one our town's best assets. The boys both reported having a fabulous time.
