Default Eyes on a headband

I'm looking to make something like this for my daughter. I've tried searching here but haven't found anything with the search terms I can think of.

I've seen them with Elmo and a few others but I can't tell what the eyes are made from. Any ideas?

I was thinking pom poms too w/ felt in the middle for the eye ball part. Or maybe just all of it's felt.

That's what I thought too but I've never seen Pom poms that big before. Then I thought maybe it was a tulle puff or something. I'm not sure if that would hold up well enough though.

The only other thing I can think of to try is those craft styrofoam balls.

I've gotten some balls that big at hobby lobby before...

You could also make your own out of yarn I'd think.

If you zoom in on the picture it looks like cotton batting. You can see it is kind of rough around the edges.

I think it is the big pompoms with a piece of black felt for the eye center, and the eye lid is teal and gold colored sparkle tulle wrapped around them. Two smaller pink pompoms for the nose. This is really cute, and now I wanna make one...just another thing to add to the "I wanna do, but probably never will" list!!

It is really cute! I had originally thought to use styrofoam balls but looked around to see if I could find a better idea.These are cute but I wasn't quite sure what they were.

I don't have a Hobby Lobby. I'll have to try looking around again to see what I can find. I could make them from yarn I guess but I'm not sure how they'd look.
