What better way to add a touch of Disney magic to your home than with a Mickey Mouse-inspired wreath?
Combining the enchantment of Disney with the warm and cozy vibes of the season, this delightful DIY project will not only fill your home with festive cheer but also create cherished memories with your kids.
In this article, we’ll take you through a step-by-step guide on how to make a Mickey Mouse-inspired Fall wreath with your little ones, so grab your crafting supplies and let’s dive into a world of imagination and seasonal fun!
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), or three grapevine wreaths (I used 1 24 inches $5.99 at Michaels and 2 14 inches $2.99 at Michaels). You can also check your local dollar store for materials.
Place the larger wreath in the middle and position the two smaller wreaths on each side to make Mickey’s 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.
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.
Have your child help you arrange the flowers on the wreath, and 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.
Have your child help you stick the flowers onto the wreaths by placing the stems through some 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 lights and string them around your wreath. You can also add ribbon and some glitter.
