DIY Mickey Mouse Valentine Garland
Adorable Disney Valentine decor doesn’t need to be expensive. Save some money by doing it yourself. Gather supplies around the home for this project and then it won’t cost you a thing! It’s super easy to show off your love of everyone’s favorite mouse and Disney with this DIY Mickey Mouse Valentine Garland!
You will need cardboard cutouts of Mickey heads and some hearts. Search online for “Mickey head template” and you can find tons to print and copy. Recycle an old cardboard box for your cutouts, and don’t stress about the cutouts being perfect. It will turn out great in the end, trust me! You will also need some twine in the length that you want your garland, white yarn, red twine, scissors, and tape. If you don’t have yarn or twine, experiment with supplies that you do have around the house like ribbon.
Begin by taping the start of your yarn to the back of the Mickey cutout to secure it. Start wrapping the yarn around the cutout in different directions. Make sure to keep it tight, or it will come unraveled. Always be careful with Mickey’s ears, because you don’t want to bend them!After you have wrapped a good amount, place your garland twine across the back, just under the ears. Continue to wrap the yarn over the garland twine until no sign of the cardboard is visible. Take your time to make sure your yarn doesn’t slip off or get tangled up. When you are satisfied, tie off the end of the yarn to another piece in the back.
Repeat steps for the heart, but use red twine instead of yarn. Place the garland twine just under the top dip in the heart. This helps the heart so it doesn’t lean over when hanging due to weight. Continue to repeat steps for the remainder of Mickey heads and hearts that you want on your garland. Make placement adjustments by simply sliding your Mickey heads and hearts across the garland twine. Tie a loop at both ends of your garland twine to easily hang.
