Hi there, friends! My name is Kara and I am a creative mommy blogger over at Mine for the Making. I love to share tutorials, recipes, free prints, frugal decor, party styling, teaching ideas, and all things DIY! Thanks so much for hanging out with me today at My Favorite Finds! Carrie is so sweet to invite me over to her blog-a-roo while she’s on (my favorite ever) vacation! We are a house of Disney nuts so it won’t surprise you that my daughter’s 5th birthday was Minnie Mouse themed.
I thought I’d share one of my favorite pieces of decor from her Minnie Mouse Party…
The Minnie Mouse Wreath
Isn’t it so cute?
Here’s what you need to make your own:
-stiff black felt
-hot glue gun and sticks
1. Cut the black fabric in 2 inch strips. You can do this easily by cutting a bit at the top then ripping the fabric by hand.
2. Wrap the black fabric strips around the wreath form, securing with hot glue as needed. Be sure to cover the wreath form entirely.
3. Cut 2 circles (about 5-6 in in diameter, give or take) out of the stiff black felt. hot glue to the top of the wreath, to look like Minnie’s ears.
5. Using your marker, draw your child’s name in block letters on the red felt and cut out.
6. Draw a bow on the red felt and cut out.
7. Hot glue the name and bow to the wreath.
8. Add white polka dots to the red felt. You can dip the end of a paint brush in the paint, use a Q-tip or even a tooth pick depending on the size you want the polka dots. Allow dry time.
9. Hang the wreath as part of a display for a party or celebration.
Thanks for stopping by today friends!
