Mickey Mouse Wreath for under $5

Mickey Mouse Wreath for under $5

We are so excited to be hosting another Disneyside party this year. For the most part we will be keeping with the same theme but we are still awaiting our box of goodies so that will change. I have started making our DIY Mickey Mouse Invitations  but thought we would add a few new decorations into the mix. After making this Valentine’s Day Wreath I got a touch of the crafting bug and created this Mickey Mouse Wreath for under $5. It took less than an hour and it is simple but screams MICKEY.


What you need to make this Yarn Mickey Wreath:IMG_4773

  • Straw or foam wreath ( I wish I got foam
  • black and red thread ($1 bin at craft store for small sizes)
  • 2 large white buttons ( Spray paint ones you have at home)
  • Black ribbon to hang the wreath

Staring with the Black carefully wind it around half of your wreath. Trying to keep the yarn spacing as evenly as possible. There is really no wrong way to do this. 


I found it easiest to keep one finger near the looping. Be sure to pull it taught. 


Go backward and fill in your spaces, being sure not to miss anything.


Tie it off in the back or you could use a glue gun to adhere it to the back of the wreath. 

Repeat with the Red Ribbon.


Add your Buttons with glue to really show off your Mickey Mouse Wreath.

With your black ribbon make a wreath hanger.

If you wanted to do Minnie Mouse wreath, I would add a bunch of small white buttons to the red and make a red wreath hanger.

I told you this was such an easy craft and you can make it as small or large as you need. We decided not to add any ears as we like the simplicity of the wreath.
