I need to make 25 headbands that look like bear ears, on the cheap. But not too cheap - the "hats" primary teachers make with sentence strips are a little too low-budget. Any ideas?

Dollar store headbands - there are usually several for $1. Then ears from construction paper attached with hot glue?

I made them once with fuzzy fabric from the costume section of the fabric store. I made little round pouches by sewing two sections together right sides together, and then stuffed a pipe cleaner in them to make the shape right and make it stand up. I sewed them to the headband.
Not sure it would be cheap, I only had to make 1 pair, and we used a headband we already had.

I was going to suggest the dollar store headbands as well, but use felt for the ears- hot glues onto the headband. You might could just do elastic (not sure how much that would cost) in place of the headbands with ears sewn or glued on.

Now take the edge, on either side of the slice, and slide one over the other and glue it. it makes the ear "cup" and gives you a little flat spot to glue it to the headband.
