It's almost Fall and you know what that means. It's time for Apple picking, pumpkin carving and time to decorate the house! Since I've been feeling a little Disney inspired lately I thought what's better than a Mickey Mouse Wreath for the front door?Absolutely nothing- so here it is!
Here's how to make your very own Mickey Fall Wreath
3 wreaths-1 large and 2 small (Michaels)
2 Fall leaf garlands- I also bought a Fall leaf bouquet (Michaels)
1 pack of pumpkins (Hobby Lobby)
1 pack of small discs (Michaels)
Orange paint (try to get as close to to the pumpkin color
Raffia-to secure ears (Michaels)
***X-Acto knife, scissors, and hot glue gun ***
1. Paint the discs orange on both sides (2 disc per pumpkin). I had to mix in a little red to match one of the pumpkins that were a little darker orange.
2. While the disc are drying is the perfect time to attach the ears to the head. I just eyeballed the spacing. Wrap the Raffia around the ear and head. The more wraps the better so the ear doesn't droop. I was able to get the Raffia about the same color as the wreath.
3. Once the discs are dry cut slits in the side of the pumpkins to insert the disc. I used a little hot glue in the slit to secure the disc.
4. Now the fun part: START ASSEMBLING! Start wrapping garland, pulling leaves and berries off the garland or out of the bouquet and start shoving and poking them where you like them. It's all about you now and what you want so be creative!!!!
Once the garland was secured I hot glued the Mickey pumpkins in various places. #hiddenmickeys
I love how this wreath turned out.
Can you tell where we'd rather be???
