Magically Easy Homemade Mickey Ornaments

When Chris and I moved from Los Angeles to Arkansas, there was one box that we just couldn’t fit in the trailer we were pulling behind the truck: our box full of Christmas ornaments. I thought to myself, “How do I include my two year old in our holiday decorating and not spend a lot of money restocking our supply of ornaments?”

So this year, KJ and I made Mickey ornaments out of foam sheets and hung them on the tree. This way, there are no glass balls that could put our 9 month old in danger, and KJ will get to see his favorite character, Mickey, every day!

Here are the steps to making these cute and easy foam Mickey Mouse ornaments:

DIY Emoji Bodysuits

Need a gift that you can make and give to your littlest lovebug for Christmas? These DIY Emoji Bodysuits are amazing! I’m totally in love with emojis and can hardly type a text message or Instagram without them! I love the idea of putting one on a cute little outfit for baby. (The poop one?! Oh my gosh!) With only 2 supplies (plain white bodysuits and iron transfer paper) you can make an entire wardrobe for your favorite little one…

DIY Salt Dough Picture Frame Ornaments

There’s nothing more special than a handmade keepsake ornament from baby’s first Christmas. When I first saw these DIY Salt Dough Picture Frame Ornaments, I knew I had to share them with you here. With just a few supplies (most of which you already have in your pantry) and a cute picture of your little one, you can create an affordable and ADORABLE handmade gift to give to your close friends and family.

DIY Mickey and Minnie Mouse Holiday Cupcakes

Thanks to Disney Baby and Cakes.com for sponsoring this post and for giving me the Mickey and Minnie Mouse cupcake decorating supplies for free.

The holidays are such a fun time to bake. My girls and I love to make cupcakes on the weekend. While Macks is down for his nap, it’s a good bonding experience for us, and it’s even more fun when we can eat our project at the end.

This weekend, the girls and I decided to makes Mickey and Minnie Mouse holiday cupcakes using some of the baking supplies we ordered from Cakes.com. The girls are super fans of Minnie Mouse and couldn’t wait to have some holiday fun. I was very excited to get a little bit creative and see what kind of cupcakes I could come up with.

Check out how we made them and how they turned out!
