Who doesn't love Winnie the Pooh? I mean, he is probably the most lovable Disney character ever made. He is easily the most cuddle-able, best-friend-forever-able, quotable bear in television.
I absolutely love the novelty Mickey Mouse ears, and I had to create some for such a lovable little guy!

Headband, in Mustard, Make 2
**Special Note: Because keeping track of sts and rnds at the same time can be a struggle, I have included the total number of sts for each section where there are no increases, so all you need to do is count the sts, and not the rnds! Also, before each inc rnd, be sure to test out the fit on the headband. It will be tight, and it should be, but if you don't stretch it out a bit, as you go, it will be very difficult to fit on when finished.
Begin with magic ring.
Rnd 1: 6 sc in magic ring; 6 sts
Rnds 2-8: sc in each st around; 6 sts (42 sts)
Rnd 9: inc, sc in next 5 sts; 7 sts
Rnds 10-16: sc in each st around; 7 sts (49 sts)
Rnd 17: inc, sc in next 6 sts; 8 sts
Rnds 18-24: sc in each st around; 8 sts (56 sts)
Rnd 25: inc, sc in next 7 sts; 9 sts
Rnds 26-35: sc in each st around; 9 sts (90 sts)
Put them on the opposite ends of the headband, pulling them to meet in the middle. Seamless sew them together (pictures below). But to seamlessly sew, you will be sewing into each st twice. Line them up so that the final sts of the rnds align with the first sts on the opposite side. Insert your hook into the first open st across from where the tail begins. Insert hook into same st on bottom, new st on top. Then new st on bottom, same st on top; same st on bottom, new st on top. Do this, always going through the same piece first, so that you're not going back and forth, but always start by going through the piece on the said where your tail began. Knot and weave in ends on the bottom side of the headband.

Use your puff paint to paint "HUNNY" onto the light blue center. This may take up to 24 hours to dry! You can sew the ear on first if you'd like. I wrote on mine first, then let dry before sewing.
To sew the ears on, I flattened the bottoms just a bit to give them a more stable base, and make them easier to sew.
