DIY Mickey Pom Pom Clutch

Spring is almost here ( or at least I know so many of us hope so). It’s  time to think about Spring and Summer Style. I love a good straw clutch for Spring and Summer. When I saw these straw clutches at Michaels I knew they were perfect for adding some fun of my own too. 


Find the clutch in Michaels stores or on line here

I decided to use Pom Poms for this one to add some Disney Style fun.  You can find Pom Poms at Target, Michaels as well as here on Amazon. Pinks and White are what I went with as I knew it would be perfect paired with several of my Lilly Pulitzer pieces. I debated threading the Poms or using hot glue and just decided to go with hot glue since I have a more industrial hot glue gun. To determine sizes and colors I  laid them out how I wanted them before I made any decisions. These would also be super cute with an assortment of colors. 

Once I had them arranged I added glue to the back of each one going down the line and pressing them down firmly. 

This was packed in my suitcase and easily survived the trip there and back. 

The clutch itself cost me under $6 when Micheals ran them 50% off. The Poms cost me around $3 or $4 and I hardly touched them it feels like so I’ll use them for other projects.  I’m actually going to grab another clutch next time I am in the store and try to make one with assorted color Poms or tassels that will look great all Spring and Summer long. The possibilities are endless as to what you could do. 

I styled it with one of my Lilly Pulitzer (see similar dress here) dresses, Tory Burch Millers, Lillian and Co Bracelets, and Kendra Scott earrings which all tied together perfectly for a little Disney date night with my husband. This is such a fun and easy way to add a little hidden Mickey into your style. What are some little ways you add a little  Disney into your style? 

Valentines Inspired Mickey Mouse Sun Catcher

I’m always looking for new things or crafts for us to do at home. Adding in Disney just peaks my girls interest so much more, and keeps her engaged. What can I say we are definitely a Disney family. 

These sun catchers are something fun for the kids to do. They can hang on the window to catch the beautiful rays of sun in a fun way. If you have older kids they can do most the work, with younger ones like my toddler you will need to do most the work. 

Here is what you need: 

A fun paper plate- these were themed to Valentines Day but you could use anything

Big Pieces of Glitter or Confetti 

Clear Contact Paper 


Mickey Cookie Cutter (you can also just use a cut out) 

Pen or Marker 

Ribbon (optional) 

To start flip your plate over to trace your Mickey head onto the paper plate. 

Poke your scissors through to cut out the Mickey shape. The plates I used were super thick and harder to cut. I might recommend using something a little less thick. 

Cut 2 pieces of contact paper to fit the middle of plate. 

Add contact paper to back side of the plate then flip over and add the glitter or confetti. Once that’s added top with the other piece of contact paper, and make sure to smooth it down really well. 

I decided to add some ribbon but you don’t have too. To add it I just poked a hole with my scissors and strung it through. 

Now you have a fun sun catcher you can make with supplies you probably already have at home. If we could get some Sunshine here so we can use ours that would be great! Make sure to show me all your creations. 

DIY Disney Pin Board Ornaments

We have finally been setting up our office space and I came across all our Disney pins. I decided to  make  some pin boards to add some more art to the office, and actually display our pins. 

When I started thinking about Christmas I thought why can’t I display some of our pins on our Disney tree? So the idea for cork ornaments for my pins came about. 

To make these I used cardboard and cork contact paper which you can find here. You could also use this type of cork but I used what I had at home. The pins popped right through and stayed put. 

Use a large mug or something round to trace the circle on both the cardboard and the contact paper. Cut the shape out and peel the back off the cork and apply to the card board. Trim any excess off. 

I like the look of the plain cork but I also wanted to add a little more so I glitter and modge podge for a few others. To do the glitter, apply modge podge onto the cork and then top with glitter. I dump a ton over top a paper plate and then dump what I don’t use back in. Which is usually like half the container. I really like extra fine glitter for projects like these but regular size works too. Once the glitter has tried top with another coat of modge podge to seal it. 

You can use ribbon or hooks to hang your ornaments. I used a bakers twine for most of mine and ribbon for the purple one I did since my red and white bakers twine didn’t match. 

It was fun to pick out some of our favorite pins to add onto to the tree. We collected the pins from Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party for several years and they have Just been sitting getting no attention. The Christmas Forever Pin aka Cocoa Queen pin are from Oh Yeah Apparel! 

Garland is from The Fickle Felt Tree

After doing the Christmas Pins I wanted to do some themed with our other favorites. I love Ariel so the purple glitter made since to me and the pins were perfect on there. 

We both love all so many of the Pixar movies so a collage of our favorites was the perfect fit. My husband loves Eeyore so of course I did that one for him.

When we are there in a few weeks I’ll have to do some trading for some Minnie Mouse pins to do one for my daughter. I had planned too but I didn’t have very many to fill an ornament. What is great about these is you can customize them however you want to with pins, glitter and even paint. 

If you collect Disney pins these will be the perfect addition to your Disney tree, or any tree. Do you collect Disney pins and trade them when your in the parks?

DIY Disney Inspired Mini Pumpkins

DIY Disney Inspired Mini Pumpkins

I set out to paint pumpkins with my toddler this week. Ya it was kinda a mess, but of course I got inspired to make some fun Disney inspired pumpkins. 

I had 3 mini pumpkins, and I’ve been all about the glitter so that became a part of what I dreamed up. My toddlers 2 favorites are right now are Minnie Mouse and Ariel so that made it easy to choose for me. Plus Ariel is really my all time favorite. 

I started with the Minnie inspired pumpkins. I did two Minnie inspired ones, one in classic colors and one in a shimmery white and gold. 

*print from Happily Ever Tees, Tumbler available here in my shop.

These are pretty simple to make. You need paint, glitter (I used extra fine glitter) and modge podge. I started by glittering the stem. Apply modge podge to the stem and then coat in glitter. Once it has dried apply another layer of modge podge to seal. I should have gotten a white pumpkin for the white one because this one took a million coats but after the paint is dried, paint the dots in modge podge and coat with glitter. Shake the excess glitter off the best you can. Once you seal the dots you can wipe off excess glitter. 

Next up is the Ears. I used basic card stock scrapbook paper you get a Michaels. I used a bottle of acrylic paint to trace the ears. Then I cut them and made sure they matched. (because as you can see they did not at first) I then folded a small part and hot glued them to the pumpkin. 

After completing the classic Minnie Pumpkin I just felt it needed a bow. I used some scrap polka dot fabric I had and hot glue to make that happen. Then I hot glued it right on and fell in love. 

For the Ariel inspired one it was pretty simple. Green and purple paint. But then I felt like it needed a little something else and I found these green sequins in what I like to call my Mary Poppins box and that added Exactly what was needed. 

These were super easy and fun to do! One day my daughter and I can really design these together. Do you have Disney inspired pumpkins? Happy Halloween!
