It’s November! The leaves are changing color and Thanksgiving is on its way. I always love Disneyland during this time of year. The decorations are beautiful and the atmosphere gives you those warm and fuzzy feelings. Hooray for sweater season! This project is inspired by those decorations at the park. It’s a hidden Mickey for your home.
|Supplies List:||Tools List:|
|Large Styrofoam Ball||Craft Glue|
|2 Medium Styrofoam Balls||Wire Cutters|
|A ton of Faux Flowers|
First, I clipped the flowers and leaves off of their stems.
Next, I chopped my dowel into 6 3inch pieces.
I poked a hole into the medium ball and glued in a dowel. (You’ll want to have three dowels per medium ball eventually).
The time-consuming part is sticking in all of the flowers and leaves. I made sure to have a good mix of large and small flowers.
You don’t have to glue these in, but if you find that a certain flower keeps falling out, go ahead and glue it. Otherwise, they’ll pretty much stick without glue.
After covering most of the medium ball, I stuck in the other two dowels and fixed it to the large ball. The three dowels really help to stabilize everything.
Continue covering the balls with flowers and leaves.
I used three very large flowers to make a hidden Mickey on each side.
Then I finished covering the balls with flowers.
To make the Mickey head a little more pronounced, I wrapped some twine around the base of the ears. Some of you might want to stick with flowers only so you don’t have leafy bits flying off everywhere. I liked the wildness of it so I kept it.
You Made It!
I love the subtle hidden Mickey of this project. It’s beautiful and perfect for the Fall season! You can create this using smaller foam balls because this is quite large and this amount of faux flowers can be expensive depending on where you get them. Make sure you get an appropriate stand so it doesn’t fall over. I just used an empty vase.
