CRAFTS ARE SUCH A WONDERFUL WAY TO ADD INDIVIDUAL STYLE TO YOUR HOME. AND WHEN YOUR STYLE HAPPENS TO BE INSPIRED BY DISNEY, ALL THE BETTER!
So here we are in February and no trip to Disneyland in sight! So what are we to do? It’s quite simple, really – learn how to find the magic in your home! We are continually looking for fun ways to bring Disneyland home to us and this easy Mickey Mouse wreath is perfect!
This super-cute, quick and easy Mickey Mouse wreath can be made in no time, using items from the dollar store! Say what? Magical AND budget-friendly? Oh boy, that’s music to my ears!
What You’ll Need
As I said, this wreath can be made using nothing but dollar store supplies! If you’re not near a dollar store, I’ve included links to similar products on Amazon. Here’s what you’ll need:
- Grapevine Wreaths – one large and two medium-size – these can be any size you like, as long as they are proportionate
- Floral Wire & Wire Cutter
- Spanish Moss
- Artificial Flowers
- Hot Glue Gun
- Wood Heart Cutout
- Acrylic Paint
What You’ll Do
This is such a quick craft! You’ll love how little time it takes to make this easy Mickey Mouse wreath.
Start by painting your wooden cutout. This way, the paint can dry while you put together your wreath. I chose a little wooden heart and painted it red, but you could do anything you like here!
I simply brushed the paint onto the cutout with a paper towel, as I wanted very light coverage and NO MESS to clean up! Paint your cutout and set it aside.
Now you will create the head and ears – simply wrap the floral wire around one small wreath and the large one. Once the first ear is in place, determine the placement of the second and wire it in the right spot.
If you plan to hang your wreath, be sure to create a hook on the back at this point. You don’t really want to be fussing with it once your floral pieces are attached. I skipped this step, personally, because I knew that the wreath would be sitting on a shelf!
Next, you’ll want to figure out how much or how little embellishment you want on your wreath. I used several stems of flowers cut from one larger stem to cover the top of my wreath. I then laid out the Spanish moss to figure out how much I wanted to attach.
This is the point to start warming up your glue gun!
Glue each individual stem to your wreath where you like them. Once the flowers are in place, glue the Spanish moss. After gluing on my moss, I decided to tuck a few more flowers into the moss, just to break it up a little.
The final step is to attach the wood cutout. Decide where you like it best, and use a liberal amount of hot glue to attach it.
And voila! You just made a quick and easy Mickey Mouse wreath! How cute is that?
