It’s craft time again, and today, I’m showing you how to make a floral Mickey Mouse wreath out of embroidery hoops!
I’m a big fan of subtle, classy Disney references in every day life. While I love some in your face Disney decor, sometimes it’s nice to add really beautiful, subtle touches without going overboard.
This Mickey Mouse wreath really hits the mark for me. It’s beautiful, my style, and screams Disney without feeling at all “little kid” (not that that is always a bad thing!).
I could see this wreath hanging at a wedding, or as a piece in a Disney-themed nursery. Of course, you can also use it on the front door as a spring or summertime wreath!
Plus, this was a super simply, quick craft. It probably took me 30 minutes to put everything together!
Here’s how to make your very own Mickey Mouse wreath!
What You’ll Need
You only need a few things to make your wreath:
- Two embroidery hoops – one for the body and one for the ears
- Fake florals
- Hot glue gun
I got my embroidery hoops from my mom, who has all of these things stashed away. You only need two because you separate the smaller one to make two ears. If you have a hoop that’s missing an inside or outside, now is a great time to use it!
I bought a 6 ft. string of florals from Amazon. I wanted greenery and blooms, and this was the cheapest way for me to get both.
Put It Together
It was really easy to put this all together.
First, I arranged my hoops into a Mickey Mouse shape I liked. Then, I hot glued the ears to the main hoop.
Next, I cut the blooms and leaves that I wanted to use off of my string of florals.
I arranged the flowers and leaves how I wanted them to be on my wreath, and took a picture for reference before removing everything and gluing it all down.
All you need to do is make sure you like the way it looks, but if you’re struggling, here’s a couple things to keep in mind:
- Keep it balanced: I put my florals on the bottom left, and then I did flower on the right ear so it wasn’t left or right heavy.
- Be odd: odd numbers typically feel a little nicer than even numbers.
- Don’t overdo it: keep it light and simple, don’t try to get too much on your wreath.
I glued all my florals together, and then glued it all onto my wreath. Some pieces are glued on the inside of the wreath, with others glued on the outside, to make them go in different directions and look more dynamic.
For the most part, I tried to keep it natural looking by not gluing in a lot of places, but if I wanted the leaves to face a certain direction, I glued them how I liked.
In one spot, I even wrapped the florals around the hoop for a different look.
Once everything is glued down, you’re all finished! Hang your Mickey Mouse wreath and enjoy your handiwork.
