I made this adorable Minnie Mouse Wreath for K’s 2nd birthday party! The Minnie Mouse theme quickly took over my house. I loved this theme particularly because I could use any pink, purple an red decorations and it would all still match the theme. Lots of bows, lots of pink and lots of mouse ears made for a perfectly perfect party!!
This has got to be my favorite piece that I made. And so super easy!!
Start with one large styrofoam craft ring and two small ones for the ears. These can be purchased at any craft store, Walmart or Amazon.
I wrapped each piece with black felt (pink for the bottom) so that the green on my ring did not show through the tulle.
You can find 50 yd spools of tulle that come in almost any color. I bought mine at Michaels and needed 3 total (two black and one pink). They are perfect because you only have to cut the length. I cut 17″ pieces and double layered the pink. The black was fine to do single layers.
Next you can attach the ears; also wrapped in felt. I used toothpicks (2) and a dab of hot clue to secure the ears.
Tie on your black tulle in single layers. The black felt underneath is very forgiving. Any knot will work but I did just a regular square knot. You can fluff out the tulle after everything is tied on. Just don’t tie too tight so that you can pull together and arrange in a way that looks nice and uniform. I cut 15″ tulle strips for the ears.
There you have it! Add a bow of your Choice and some white polka dots and your done! For my white polka dots I used foam with a sticky back and just stuck on at random. It was a huge hit an a great way to welcome guests into our home!
I went ahead and added some Amazon links since that’s the easiest way to shop! Here is a cost breakdown:
Large ring– $6.16
Small rings– $4 (2) I don’t know why these are so hard to find! I found mine at Walmart but Amazon also carries them!
Felt– already had (<–with this link – there will be leftover felt but, hey, who can’t use black felt??)
Black Tulle– $3.99 each (2)

Happy Wreath Making!
