When SavEar Shelby saw a super cute Mickey Wreath on Etsy she was in love. Not so lovable? The $60 price tag.
But Shelby did what SavEars do and found a better, more cost effective option. Her totally gorgeous wreath cost $2o in materials and definitely looks as good, if not better, than something you could find on Etsy.
Do you have some craft loving kids who need a new project? Do you need something to do to keep your spirits up? Would you love to bring a little Disney magic to your house? This wreath would be a perfect project to undertake right now. Lucky for us, Shelby agreed to tell us how it is done!
*Shelby got her materials at the Dollar Tree and Walmart, but most craft stores or online sites should have these materials.
- Two 8 inch styrofoam wreath forms (Dollar Tree)
- One 14 inch styrofoam wreath form (Walmart)
- 1.5 yards fabric (Walmart)
- Hot glue gun
- Two sets of silk roses (Dollar Tree)
- Two paper clips
- Cut fabric into 4 inch wide strips.
- Hot glue one end of a strip to the first wreath form and wrap the fabric around tightly. Hot glue the other end when you run out of material. Repeat this process with another strip until the entire form is covered. Try to keep all your ends on the back.
- Repeat Step 2 for the other two forms.
- Straighten out the paper clips and cut them in half. Insert one end of a half into the large wreath form, the other into one of the smaller ones. Repeat with the second half of the paper clip on the same ear. This holds the ear steady while you got glue it to Mickey’s head.
- Repeat Step 5 with the other ear.
- Tie a piece of twine between the ears to hang your Mickey without squashing the flowers you’re about to attach.
- Remove the blooms from the silk flower stems. Hot glue them to your wreath however you like. Shelby added a few leaves as an adorable accent for the flowers.
This wreath is such a stunner. I love Shelby’s aesthetic of the charming rustic gingham with the delicate chic flowers, and you could do so many different themes with this! Do you want classic Mickey colors of red, black, white, and yellow? Do you want to go a little colder and do an Elsa wreath with blues and whites? Maybe you’re thinking best wreath ever and full Rapunzel with purples and gold? Make this with materials you have on hand or tailor them to your favorite Disney character.
