Mickey Mouse Christmas Ornament Craft

One of my favorite times to visit the Disney parks is during the Christmas season when the parks get decked out for the holidays, the cast members outfits change to old-timey carolling style outfits, and all of the fun Christmas snack options pop up on the menus.

There are also these little Christmas shops that pop up with incredibly cute and fun Christmas decor and gift ideas, all with creative Disney theming.

But, the ornaments all come with park price tags, maybe making it reasonable to buy one as a special family souvenir, but definitely not affordable enough to buy one for everyone in the family or attempt to decorate your whole Christmas tree with.

To make 12 of these Mickey Mouse ornaments yourself comes to about the same cost as buying just one at the park! Plus, you can customize your own ornaments in so many different ways.

Ideas to Customize these Mickey Mouse Ornaments

  • add family member’s names, using paint or Cricut vinyl
  • customize Mickey’s colors to your Christmas decor
  • use jingle bells instead of ornaments (like this one from Shop Disney)
  • make nods to your other favorite Disney characters with different color schemes or designs (like adding roses for ears for a Belle ornament)
  • make a few of these ornaments into a bunting banner

Materials for Mickey Mouse Ornaments

Tools

Tip: you can swap out the colors to make red and green Mickey ornaments, black and pink Minnie ornaments, etc.

How to Make Mickey Mouse Ornaments

With the painters tape, make a line across the middle of the ornament, leaving the bottom half of the ornament un-taped.

Place the ornament upside down in the paper cup to hold it steady and paint the bottom of the ornament with the red acrylic paint. Allow the paint to dry completely.

Once dry, coat the red acrylic paint in a thin layer of the mod podge. Allow the mod podge to dry completely.

Once dry, turn the ornament over in the paper cup and remove the tape.

Place 1 tbsp of mod podge into the ornament using the funnel.

Add 1 tbsp of black glitter to the ornament then swirl it around, turning it and covering the entire interior of the ornament with the black glitter. Allow the paint to dry completely.

Remove the metal pieces from the mini black glitter ornaments and hot glue them in place on either side of the larger ornament, on the top.

Hot glue the two yellow buttons to the front of the ornament and enjoy!
