Disney Pixar Blog Hop June 28th - Mickey Welcome Sign

Welcome to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!


If you love Disney Pixar and crafting, you came to the right place!  We have been sharing Disney or Pixar inspired projects ALL MONTH.   If you missed the first three weekends, you can still go back and see all of those projects too.  Just click HERE to see the projects from the first weekend, and click HERE to see the projects from the second weekend and click HERE to see the projects from the third weekend.  

If you came here from Bobbi Jo's blog, then you are in the right place.  If you just happened upon this Blog Hop, make sure to head over to Shawn's blog so that you see the full hop from the very beginning.  

For my project, I made Mickey Mouse signs for our entryway!  I made a Mickey and Minnie Mouse themed sign for our bathroom and I loved it so much that I had to make a few more!  They're really easy to make and they add the perfect touch of Disney magic to your house!  Here's how I made my Mickey signs:


Supplies
Wood Mickey Shapes (I bought mine in a custom size from LaserBird on Etsy)
Small Wood Letters (make sure they'll fit on your Mickey shapes)
Acrylic Paint and Brush
1/4" Ribbon
Hot Glue Gun
Acrylic Sealant (optional- but recommended if you're going to put your sign outside)


First, paint your Mickey and letter shapes in your selected paint colors.  (You'll probably have to do two coats of paint for the best coverage.)  If you'd like to, paint the backs of the Mickey shapes as well.  Once they're dry, use your hot glue gun to attach the letters to the Mickeys.  Optional: Seal the paint with your acrylic sealant so your sign won't get damaged if you leave it outside.  Make sure that you're in a well ventilated area!


Lay your Mickey shapes out so they're stacked vertically in the correct arrangement. Pull a length of ribbon a little bit longer than the Mickeys and then double it.  The "center" of the ribbon will be the top part of the sign that you use to hang it up.  (Leave enough space to hang it with a push pin, screw, or wreath hook.)


Arrange the Mickeys along the paths of ribbon.  Leave a little bit of room between the Mickey shapes.  I arranged mine so the ears would be attached to each pathway of ribbon. Finally, hot glue your Mickeys to the ribbon once you're happy with your layout. (My welcome signs are about 30" long.)  If there's any ribbon left over, cut it off at the bottom of your last Mickey.  You're done!  Hang it up and enjoy your new Mickey sign!
