Half & Half Pattern Tips – Creating a ‘Mouse Ears’ Ornament


In this video, Monica talks about tips for creating adorable ornament designs featuring some famous ‘mouse ears’... (and minions too!)

In the video she show variations of three patterns: Half & Half, Parasol, and the Basic Star. (Click on each name to learn more about these patterns).

 Monica covered a lot in this video! Here is a list of the resources she mentioned...


The Wrapped Ribbon Ornament tutorial (used to make the 'ears') can be found HERE.

HERE are the large, flat black beads she used for another version of 'mouse ears'.

Extra long pins to attach the ears can be found HERE.

And, here are the foam shapes mentioned (we carry these SOFTfoam shapes in our OG Shop):

3" SoftFoam Round Balls

3-1/4" SoftFoam Ovals

SoftFoam Hemis: Medium (3-1/2") & Large (4")

4" SoftFoam Cones


Some Inspiration!

    Hi I was wondering if I purchase the half and half tutorial from Sugar Plum thru Ornament Girl, does it include all of the variations or just just part of them?? Thanks, PJ
