Cute Mickey Mouse Fall Wreath Family Craft

My daughter is a huge Mickey Mouse fan right now, so when I saw a variation of this wreath on Pinterest I knew I had to come up with my own version.  This wreath came out beautiful, the picture doesn’t give it justice.  My 2-year-old daughter and I had so much fun making it, we can’t wait to make one for Christmas.  It was easy and now my neighbors all want me to make them one.  It makes a great door decoration for the Fall season.  Follow  the step-by-step directions below to create your very own Mickey wreath.

Materials: Artificial fall flowers (I found mine at Michaels for 50% off), Hemp Cord (I found mine in the jewelry making aisle at Michaels.  You can use any natural color thick cord), wire cutter (dollar store), 3 grapevine wreaths (I used 1 24 inch $5.99 at Michaels and 2 14 inch $2.99 at Michaels)

 

Step 1: Place the larger wreath in the middle and position the two smaller wreaths on each side to make the Mickey ears.  Using your cord tightly tie the ears (smaller wreaths) to the head (larger wreath).  Make sure you pull the cord as tightly as you can to prevent the ears from coming loose.  Don’t worry if you can see the cord.  It will be covered up by the flowers later.

Step 2: Using the wire cutter, cut the stems of the flowers until they are about 1 1/2 inches long.  You want them to be long enough to stick into the wreath, but not too long that they stick out the back of the wreaths.

Step 3: Have your child help you arrange the flowers on the wreath, keep adding flowers until you get the look you want.  They had a large selection at Michaels.  Some of the flowers even have fall embellishments such as pumpkins.  I picked up a couple.

 

Step 4:  Have your child help you stick the flowers onto the wreaths by placing the stems though some of the openings on the wreaths.  Once all your flowers are on you can hang your wreath.  For an added touch, you can buy battery operated Fall light and string them around your wreath.  You can also add ribbon and some glitter.
