T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Some Disney DIY Just In Time For Christmas!

A few years ago, I wrote about some DIY Disney Christmas Crafts that are fun, easy, and a great way to spend some time with family this Holiday season! Well – I loved those ideas so much, that it got me thinking about even MORE great Disney crafts you could try!

TGIFXmas EarsMaking snowflakes is a great craft for kids and adults – and these Mickey Ears ones are amazing! Check out the template here

TGIF Xmas cookies

I love hosting cookie parties at holiday time – it’s a great way to spend time with family and friends while enjoying deliciously sweet treats! The only thing that could make a cookie party even better? Disney-fying it, of course! Check out ways to incorporate Disney into your Holiday gatherings and traditions here

TGIF Xmas Garland

I love this idea – easy to do, and would make a great addition to doorways and windows! Check out instructions on how to make your own Disney Christmas Garland here

Hopefully these ideas have inspired you to get in the “Christmas Spirit” – since Christmas is only two weeks away – eek! I better go finish up my wrapping (with Mickey Mouse wrapping paper, of course…)

DIY Some Disney Love This Valentine’s Day

Ok so Christmas is over (boo) and we are in the middle of another cold, cold winter (double boo). BUT – luckily Valentine’s Day is coming up (well, luckily for those of you who love this holiday – like me!). I know many think it’s just a Hallmark holiday or a waste of time – but I love it! I love the hearts and pink and red decorations and flowers and candy – and I especially love homemade gifts – they really show how much you care, and since I am a huge Disney fan, I love when my man makes me Disney gifts for Valentine’s Day even more! Here are some ideas/things he has made me that I hope can inspire the romantic in you:

DisneyGifts Cards

Even if you don’t celebrate or enjoy Valentine’s Day, a card saying “I Love You” is great any time of the year – and if you have the time and talent, making one yourself is always the way to go. Over the years, my husband has drawn me several cards featuring some of my favorite characters (mainly Disney ones of course!), and they are some of the best things I have ever received! If you aren’t sure you can make a card, a store bought card with a heartfelt message works too

I couldn’t believe it when I opened this one – talk about awesome! My guy had seen a similar crayon art piece online, and decided he wanted to do one with Mickey and Minnie on it for me! Check out the instructions on how to create your own Melted Crayon Art here

DisneyGiftsArt2

Isn’t this one fun? My favorite Disney movie of all time is Cinderella – so my husband made this for me, and I just love how he incorporated pictures from our fun times in Disney! Something like this would be easy to create for the one you love – or you can do something simpler and get a great Disney photo frame and put a picture of the two of you in it. Or you can always check out photo websites like Shutterfly.com which have tons of photo gift items that you can personalize (with pictures from your Disney vacations perhaps?)

Another idea that can really be personalized is a Disney gift basket – there’s tons of Disney merchandise out there, from the Disney Store (both online and in malls!) to almost any local store near you – Grocery stores, Target, Wal-Mart, Department stores like JP Penney – all of them carry an assortment of Disney apparel, toys, accessories, food, and more! Especially around the holidays – places like Target will have Valentine’s themed cards, candy, mugs, plush toys, snacks etc – grab a bunch and put them in a nice basket and boom you’ve got yourself an easy DIY Disney Valentine’s gift! Of course, if you wanted to get a little more creative, you could do a basket themed after their favorite Disney movie, or make one full of stuff for their next Disney trip – the sky’s the limit here!

While the main purpose of this post was to brag about how awesome my husband is and how he gives me great gifts (just kidding – sorta!) – what I really want to impress upon everyone is that making your own Disney gifts for your Valentine doesn’t have to be hard or expensive, and you don’t have to be the king or queen of crafting to put together a nice, personalized gift that shows them how much you care!

   Disney-4th-of-July

Happy Independence Day! I hope everyone is getting a chance to enjoy the warm weather, attend some picnics, and that you’re enjoying a day off from work (I know I am!). But more than that – I hope you remember what this day is about – and that without those who fought for our freedom, we wouldn’t be here today!

It’s a great holiday isn’t it? BBQ’s and fireworks and sparklers and red white and blue…and Mickey? Yes – it’s possible to even infuse some Disney into your 4th of July celebrations with these easy DIY Disney crafts:

MinnieHeadband

Wouldn’t this be a cute headband for your favorite little Mouseketeer to wear on the 4th?

Coloring 4th

And what kid (or adult!) wouldn’t love to color this adorable scene?

StarfishCOokies

And since you will probably need to make something to bring to that family picnic, why not whip up Ariel’s adorable Starfish cookies?

Disney DIY – Make Your Own Custom Disney Shirts!

onesies

I mentioned already that my husband and I are pending a new arrival – a future Disney Addict in the making will be joining our family in early October, and we are thrilled! Last weekend we got a little crafty and made our little one some fun onesies – can’t wait to see them on him/her (and for them to probably be puked/spit up on 5 minutes later ha!). Of COURSE we had to make a disney one – I just love the future mouseketeer one, don’t you?

You can easily make onesies or t shirts at home – just get yourself some iron – on transfers (these can be bought pretty much anywhere, I think mine came from Target) – and get to work! I got lucky as ours are the ones you don’t have to reverse the image for, which made it even easier! But even if you have to reverse your image, that is easily done in photoshop or another photo editing program

Basically we just found some pictures we liked, printed them on the iron-on sheets, ironed them on, and that was really it! You can use all kinds of images, like a picture you have taken or a funny saying or a name or anything!

Making shirts to commemorate a baby’s/kids first trip to Disney is always fun, or you can announce your anniversary, engagement, honeymoon, family reunion…the list goes on! Using bright colored t-shirts with a bold pattern/picture are good for kids so you can spot them and easily keep track of your whole family

I wanted to post about the onesie idea because I know a lot of people want to have something special to wear while at Disney, and not everyone can embroider or sew (or afford to pay someone who does!) – so using iron-ons is a great alternative!

Now, if only we can fast forward a few weeks so we can know the sex of our little future Disney lover so I can make more outfits for him/her!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney DIY

There is so much anticipation and excitement that lead up to a Walt Disney World vacation, and once you are there it’s amazing, and fun, and exhilirating. But once it’s over, there is definitely a bit of a let down, because not only is your vacation over, but you have to leave the Happiest Place On Earth!

So how can you beat the post-Disney blues? By bringing some of the magic of Disney into your own home, of course! There are TONS of Disney DIY projects you can do that are easy, fun, and great ways to remind you of just how special Disney is!

Pin-Shadow-Box For those of you who are into Disney Pin Collecting, here’s a great way to display those pins – here are the step by step instructions on how to create this great Disney Pin display case

MickeyCookiesBake up some Disney fun with a Mickey Cookie cutter and these Chocolate Sugar Cookies – my man made them for me as a surprise, and let me tell you – it doesn’t get more delicious or cute than Mickey shaped cookies!

delicious_disney_coverThere are a few different Disney Cookbooks out there that feature recipes from the various Parks and Restaurants on Disney Property, and it’s a great way to recreate that delicious meal you had on vacation. Personally, I have this Delicious Disney book and love the graphics and recipes

GiantMickeyPumpkinDisney loves the holidays, and so do I! I love them so much I did a recreation of this giant Mickey pumpkin last year for Halloween using one big and two little pumpkins – it was actually really easy, and Mickey’s smiling face might not have been spooky, but it certainly was a great holiday addition

There are plenty of things you can do with your vacation photos too – from collages to decoupage to scrapbooks and albums – picture gifts and crafts are my personal fave, they’re the best way to relive the greatest vacation moments!
