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….
Three Styrofoam balls (2 at 2.5 inches and 1 at 3 inches)
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
Take your gable box and fold the flaps down on all four sides
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.
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
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.
Added the second ball so that the mickey mouse ear and you have the head.
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.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial.
