DIY: Make your own Mickey Wand

The following Do-It-Yourself post was written by Disneymooner Lianne.  Lianne made her own Mickey wands for her wedding and shared this easy to follow how to guide. On the Disneymooner Private forums you can find many other ways to save for your wedding.

I got the styrofoam balls from Michaels. The big one was about $3, but I had a 40% off coupon (YAY)…

the smaller ones (ears) were in a pack of six, and were about $3 for the pack.

The flowers were silk pink hydrangeas from Michaels the “Summer Blends” collection (or something like that). They were $5.99 for a bunch, and you need about two bunches to make them.

(I bought four different color ribbons (hot pink, light pink, iridescent and ivory),
pearl corsage push pins ($5.99 for 150) – in the bridal section at Michaels and two longer push pins (can’t remember what they are called, but they may be hair accessories, there were four in the pack and they’re about 4-5″ long) to secure the ears onto the “face”.

The “wand” is a pink plastic knitting needle… it’s one of the longer ones…

I stuck the knitting needle into the center of largest styrofoam ball to make the “wand” part.

I took the silk flowers off the greenery (pulls right off)

and secured each flower with the pearl push pins onto the styrofoam balls, and kept going until all sections were covered.

I then secure the ears onto the face with the longer push pins.

I then tried ribbons around the knitting needles.

It was really quite simple (I’m not the most creative person). So if I can do it, ANYONE can!!!

It took me about two hours to make… Hope this helps!
