Mickey Mouse Wreath DIY
Here we go! Let’s dive into the Mickey Mouse Wreath DIY. It’s super simple to follow along to, and I think you are going to love it. The best part is the end result. The minimal work gets you the maximum benefit. You will see what I mean in the end. Let’s start with supplies!
So the list below is the things I am going to use for my wreath. But keep in mind that you can make this craft your own. So please switch any of these with something that fits the style you are going for. The important part is that you are getting one bigger wreath form and two smaller ones. Other than that…it’s up to you!
Step One: Lay Out Your Supplies
I like to lay out all of my supplies so I can really see what I am working with. This step is extra important with this project because you are going to want to lay out the ears where you will be tying them to the main wreath. I am guessing you already figured out we would be doing that. The power of deduction!
Once everything is laid out and you have the Mickey Wreath structured the way you like…we can get started! This is where the real fun begins. Although, to me, the whole project, from inspiration to finished project, is fun to me!
Step Two: Start Tying the Ears On
Take your twin or jute chord and start to tie on the ears. Really make sure that you are fastening them on tightly. They are going to be a little wobbly, but try to make it as stable as possible.
I did this by making my initial knot and then wrapping the chord around the ear and the head several times back and forth so I covered as much area as I could. Then I tied it off again. Mine barely moves! So just keep trying until you get yours to be sturdy enough that you feel confident in it.
Step Three: Add Decorations
Now here is my favorite part: adding the decorations. You can add as many or as few as you want. I was feeling minimalistic today, so I am going to add one bow in the center bottom of the Mickey Wreath. This way, it looks like his bow tie!
You can add tinsel or perhaps wrap burlap around the wreath forms. Who knows? The sky is the limit. Just have fun with it!
Step Four: Add Hanging Ribbon
Now you will need to add one ribbon to the top. This way, you have something for it to hang from. Unless you are planning on hanging yours via command strips, then you can skip this step.
Loop the ribbon around your wreath and then tie the ends together, so you have a big loop. I recommend making the ribbon tall enough to go past the ears. That way, you don’t have any trouble hanging them.

Mickey Mouse was the staple figure in all of our childhoods. I cannot think of one bad memory that had a Disney movie in it.
