It’s Christmas in July today! Can you believe there are only 5 months until Christmas?

To celebrate we are going to share some fun crafts you can use to decorate for the holiday!

First up is a Mickey Mouse Holiday Garland!

This amazing craft comes from Disney Family and I love it!

Here’s what you need:

  • Mickey template printed onto cardstock paper (HERE)
  • Red, green, and off-white felt
  • Scissors
  • Batting or stuffing
  • Red, green and white thread
  • Silver and gold sequins in various sizes
  • Silver or gold seed beads (Make sure they are larger than the holes in the sequins, but smaller than your smallest sequin.)
  • Jute string
  • Hot glue


  1. Download PDF and print out the Mickey Mouse template
  2. Cut out felt pieces. You need 6 pieces of each color or as many as you would like (2 pieces per Mickey head)

5. Hot gule the jute to the bottom pieces

6. Glue or sew the decorated top piece to the bottom piece. Leave an area to stuff and then close the opening.

7. Repeat the steps until the garland is complete.

Customization Options:

I am adding a couple of ideas that can help you give the craft a bit of a twist!

If you would like to make some or all of the mouse heads Minnie Mouse, just buy or make small bows out of ribbon and hot glue them onto the head between the ears!

Cut strips of holiday fabric 6-8′ X 1″ and tie them onto the jute between the Mickey Mouse heads for an extra pop.

It’s such a fun and cute craft. What I like about this one is that since you can sew or use hot glue, it could be done by various skill levels. Just be really careful about using the hot glue. If you do this with children make sure and adult handles the hot glue and cutting.
