Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies
1- 28 gauge wire.
2- 16 gauge wire (no bigger!!!)
3- pliers
4- round nose pliers

Step 2: Two Wire Pieces

They don't have to be a specific length, just cut one a LOT smaller than the other.

Step 3: Curl

For this step just simply curl up the end. You can curl it up more if you want to, but you can just leave it like this

Step 4: Outline

Bend the outline of your ear and sculpt it with your fingers so it looks nice

Step 5: Hold On!

Now you need to make the part that 'holds on' to your ear. Bend it back with your round nose like shown above.

Step 6: Another Curl

Cut it off and curl the end to finish it off nice. Slide it onto your ear and clamp down. You can just leave it like this or you can continue.

Step 7: Separate Piece

Remember the piece we put aside earlier? Well you going to curl each end and make sure it's not to long by putting it up against the base

Step 8: Wrap Around

take your 28 gauge wire and wrap starting from the bottom

Step 9: Beads And Attachment

You want to line up the separate piece with the base and wrap. After 5-7 wraps, string a bead. Wrap one more time, string a bead. Wrap another time, string a bead the next. You want to wrap it once in between each bead because it keeps them sturdier

Step 10: Try It On And Fit

You've got to put it on your ear and make sure it's going along the outline of your ear. No more, no less. Just make sure it looks nice on and change anything you might need to

Step 11: Finish!

THANK YOU! I've been looking for a tutorial like this for quite a while. All I could find were things like "How to apply synthetic elf ears" or "How to make your own elf ears" (I checked that one out, but it was about how to CUT YOUR EARS and medical tape them together so they heal into elf shaped ears!) I believe this will turn out much better than my last attempt.
