This Mickey Mouse Wreath is some really Easy Home Decor. I made this cute and easy DIY Mickey Mouse wreath in about 10 minutes. Seriously, this is such a simple Christmas Decor craft, you’re going to love it!
Easy DIY Mickey Mouse Wreath
The one thing you have to know about this easy Mickey Mouse wreath is that it’s the easiest projects. Like easy easy.
If you’ve never made anything with floral wire or those little grapevine wreaths before, you should not be intimidated in the least. Because this is, seriously easy. You’ve got this.
This wreath will go amazingly with these Winter Hat DIY Christmas Ornaments and especially these Cruella and 101 Dalmatian Disney Christmas Ornaments.
What Do You Need to Make Super Easy Minnie Mouse Easy Home Decor Wreath?
If you ONLY want Mickey wreaths, you don’t need to bother with the red polka dot ribbon. But if you want Minnie wreaths, you gotta have the ribbon. A black bow or a pink one would do in an absolutely horrible pinch.
But seriously, the red and white polka dot ribbon is Minnie’s signature style, so let’s stick with that, shall we?
If you do decide to only make Mickey Mouse wreaths (how sad, he’ll be lonely for his little girlfriend!), you also won’t need the hot glue gun. Pretty sweet project if you don’t have one of those. But seriously, they’re all of $4.99, so get one.
What Paint Can You Use on Your DIY Disney Christmas Wreath?
You could go completely off the rails and paint your little grapevine wreaths black or red (or even green, I suppose), but be sure to do that after you’ve assembled the whole Mickey head wreath and before you put on Minnie’s bow.
Some wreaths require a lot of wire along the bundled branches in order for them to form a nice curve when bent into a circle. Just take small pieces of florist wire and wrap it around the branches while trying not to smoosh the leaves.
The reason for this is simple: you want to paint the floral wire when you paint the wreath.
If you decided you definitely wanted to paint your little Disney Mickey Mouse Wreath, you’d want to hit your local craft store for some paint. Although I love a good Dollar Tree run or Dollar Store haul, I don’t trust the paints there.
I definitely prefer the acrylic paints you get in your local craft store because they are pretty good about affixing to everything and anything.
I’m not talking about tempura paints or watercolors, or even the expensive acrylic you get in the tubes but the little containers (they’re like $4) that you get on the aisle with the crafty type clay and things.
That paint is pretty good for all sorts of crafts.
Can I Put Glitter on My DIY Mickey Mouse Wreaths?
Oh, my yes! Don’t I wish I’d thought of that before I shot these photos?! What a great idea!
You could do something quite fun and make the glitter look like a little drizzle off the top, like snow…oh, that would be too cute!
But how would you do that? Easy.
You’re going to build up a little layer of hot glue where you want the “snow” to sit. If you have a high-temp hot glue gun, this will be pretty quick. If you don’t, it might take you a minute, so decide where you want the “snow” to be before you start going at it.
Then, when the hot glue has dried, you’re going to paint it white. You can use tempera paints for this or acrylic, whatever, just be sure to do two coats, letting them dry completely in between.
After that, you’ll want to paint the hot glue shaped snow area again with glitter glue. Easy. Peasy.
Although I feel like this easy Mickey Mouse wreath is a little too big to be an ornament, it certainly could be that on a bigger tree. You could totally make this into an amazing Christmas tree decoration.
And I’ll hang it in such a way that it doesn’t dangle down on one side, but rather sits straight because it’s more of a wreath than an ornament.
How about you? Will you hang yours on your tree or your door? Let me know in the comments!
