There’s no secret that kids love Mickey Mouse. He was here when I was little and he’s still here with his friends for my children. So when a good friend of mine asked me to design her a mickey mouse centerpiece for her little prince I was super excited to do so. The ultimate goal was to keep it budget friendly so I opted for minimum items. Let’s get started….

ITEMS NEEDED:

items needed   Black Acrylic Paint

Three Styrofoam balls (2 at 2.5 inches and 1 at 3 inches)

Wooden Dowel

2 small Popsicle sticks (You can use one and cut it in half if you like)

Small rectangle of Styrofoam (to serve as base)

Gable Box or terracotta pot

STEP ONE

base

Take your gable box and fold the flaps down on all four sides

STEP TWO 

styrofoam to the base

Place the Styrofoam in the box. This will keep the flaps down and serve as the base for the centerpiece

TIP: You can also add a piece of card stock to cover the white.

STEP THREE

mm ear with toothpick

Take the small 2.5 inch Styrofoam ball and stick a small Popsicle (or halve of Popsicle) inside.

TIP: Once you place the stick in the ball, take it out and use hot glue to fill the hole. Place the stick back in the hole to adhere it to the ball.

 REPEAT THIS STEP AGAIN WITH THE OTHER 2.5 STYROFOAM BALL

STEP FOUR

add mickey ear to face

Take the small Styrofoam balls with stick and stick it in the bigger 3 inch Styrofoam ball. Make sure it is placed were you want it and than repeat step 3 TIP.

STEP FIVE

mickey ears

Added the second ball so that the mickey mouse ear and you have the head.

STEP SIX

Paint the Mickey Mouse Head. Allow 24 hours to dry.

Once it has dried,  you can do whatever it is you would like to do.

Here is some examples of what I did with mine.
