In my last post about DIY Disney ornaments,
the ornaments were super easy to make and cute as can be, yes? Let’s
do it again today – make more Mickey ornaments, but this time, we’ll go
“intermediate” level – I think you’re ready!
While shopping at my favorite craft store (again, yes, I like it
there and yes, Christmas decorations were still 50% off) – I spotted
these babies and thought – hey! With a little help from Raymond and his
manly tool-wielding-ways, I can really make some fancy new ornaments.
would have it, Raymond was with me. So, I shot him a look (no words
required) and he held out his hands to carry the ornament boxes for me.
Gotta love a man that’ll shop and carry at your favorite craft
store…and I do!
Buy shatterproof ornaments only. On sale. (Hey, my tutorial, my rules.)
Use a hack saw (or another favorite saw of your choice) to remove the ornament-hook-holder-part from each small ornament.
Same deal as last time, fire up the glue gun and apply the glue in a donut shape where the sawed-off part used to be.
Eyeball the ears (yup, just had to say that again) and, after waiting
a few seconds for the glue to cool down a smidge, slap those ears on.
So, a teensy bit more difficult this time (what, with the sawing and
all), but well worth the trouble. Minty Mickey Mouse ornaments. Made
