DIY Disney Crafts

These craft projects are for anyone who is a Disney fan. My son loves anything that has to do with Disney characters, so I make sure to create projects that he will enjoy.

1. Disney Snow Globe

I made a snow globe with a Snow White figurine, canning jar, glue gun, white glitter, and glycerin.

I poured water, glitter, and one drop of glycerin into the jar.

Next, I glued the figurine to the lid.

Then, I turned the figurine over into the jar and screwed on the lid.

How cute is this? It really does look like snow is falling on Snow White!

 

2. Disney Character Magnets

I found some packs of glass stones, Disney stickers, and Mod Podge at a dollar store to help create these adorable magnets.

I began by spreading Mod Podge on the back of the stones and front of the stickers. Then, I glued the two together, let them dry for about two hours, then added the adhesive magnets.

I cut out the Mickey Mouse shapes with the hole punch.

Then I glued the shapes on the ring with Mod Podge. After a few minutes, I got tired of waiting on the Mod Podge to dry, so I used my hot glue gun instead.

Mason Jar Snow Globe

I love Christmas, and I enjoy making decorations for my home. This is the first Christmas since my son was born that my family and I will get to spend at home without traveling, so I plan on making our house look as festive as possible. I am working on lots of DIY decorations, and I hope to share them with you all as time permits.

For this blog post, I decided to make a snow globe. I already had a case of mason jars at home, so I only needed to buy a couple of other cheap items.I used the following supplies to complete this project: mason jar, glue gun, glue sticks, water, fine glitter, miniature Christmas figurines. All of the supplies were really inexpensive because I bought them at dollar stores.

Step 1:

Turn the lid upside down. Then, hot glue the figurines to the lid. Make sure the figurines are centered on the lid so that they do not cover the seal.

Step 2:

Fill the mason jar almost to the top with water. Then, pour in the glitter. (You can either pour in the glitter first or the water, it’s just personal preference.)

***FYI: A lot of tutorials called for using glycerin in the water because it can make the glitter fall slowly. It made my glitter lump together, so use at your own discretion.

Step 4:

Turn the figurines over into the water. Then, tightly screw on the lid.

I really enjoyed making this snow globe. The supplies were inexpensive, and it didn’t take a lot of time to complete. I look forward to making more of these for family and friends.
