DIY Minnie Mouse Wreath Tutorial

:) Hi y'all!

Sneak Peek at the Sweets Table! Pops and Cookies by Pop-A-Razzi

IT'S OFFICIALLY MINNIE/MICKEY WEEK! YAAAAYY!

Sorry, I get excited sometimes.

Anyway,  here is my tutorial for the Minnie Wreath I made for my Wunkie Princess' birthday!


You will need one floral foam wreath form (I got mine from the Dollar Tree), two foam discs (Yup, you got it! Dollar Tree!), some floral wire (DOLLAR TREE!) some black ribbon, some polka dotted ribbon, a glue gun, wire cutter, scissors, and some felt remnants.

First, begin by wrapping the black ribbon around the wreath form, dotting some hot glue along the way to ensure that it doesn't unwrap or come undone. Finish it with a nice dollop of hot glue.

 Next, cut some floral wire into two strips, each about 1ft long.  Cut two strips of ribbon, long enough to wrap around the foam discs, leaving about an inch of foam exposed.  Cut four circles from your felt.  I use a piece of chalk and simply trace around the discs. Fold the wire strips in half, and loop the folded wire through a piece of ribbon once you know where you want the ears to be attached.  Add a dollop of hot glue under the ribbon. Push the folded wire into the wreath form.  Add some more glue to the discs and insert the wire ends into them, one at a time.  You now have a Mickey Mouse head!

But we want Minnie. :)

Disregard the ONE weirdly painted thumbnail. -_-

So we need a BOW!  Cut your polka dot ribbon into a strip of approximately six inches. Join the two ends into a circle and attach with a dab of hot glue.  Join the middle of the circle, gluing the "front" to the inside of the back.  Then scrunch together to get a pretty bow-like center, dabbing more hot glue on it to hold it together like in the above picture.  Cut a small strip of ribbon in half down the middle and wrap it around the bow for the center.  Notice the two glue spots in the picture above?  They hold it all together.  Attach it to your wreath and you are done! :)


Here it is, hanging on my front door!  As always, if you don't want to make it yourself, you can order it from me! This is part of the "Minnie Mouse Deluxe Party Kit"!  Happy crafting!
