DIY Mickey Mouse Cake Plate Craft

I love throwing crazy elaborate birthday parties with plenty of little details – but even more than that, I love doing it on a budget!

Our DIY mermaid birthday party is probably our most popular party post, but Ella’s first birthday party was inspired by her love for the one and only Mickey Mouse so it will always be a sentimental favorite for me.

These DIY Mickey Mouse Plates would be perfect for a Disney-themed party or a special homemade gift for that friend who is nuts about all things Disney. As long as they are hand-washed, you can get years of use out of them: Disney movie nights, special playdate treats, or just a fun way to present desserts to many any occasion a bit more special.

Materials to Make Mickey Decoupage Plates

Tip: if giving as a gift, ensure that the recipient knows that the cake platter must be hand washed only.

How to Make DIY Mickey Mouse Cake Platters

Spread the mod podge onto the back of the plate in a thick, even layer using a foam brush.

Place the fabric over the plate and smooth down, ensuring there are no bubbles. (Tip: If you turn over the plate, you can see if there are any spots you missed with the mod podge. If there are any spots, lift fabric and add a bit more glue.)

Allow the mod podge to dry completely, then cut the fabric around the plate.

Apply another coat of mod podge to the back of the fabric and allow to dry 24 hours.

Completely cover the candle stick with the glass spray paint, following the package directions. You may need to apply two coats. Allow to dry overnight.

Glue the painted candle stick to the center of the underside of the plate.
