Mickey Mouse Centerpieces

Another super cute (and super inexpensive) project to add some Mickey Mouse fun to your party!

Mickey Mouse Centerpiece


Items Needed:

  • Small metal buckets or bins
  • Dried Beans
  • Small Doll Rods (1/4” or smaller)
  • Styrofoam balls in 2 sizes (an assortment package at Dollar tree has enough for one centerpiece)
  • Black Paint
  • Embellishments (Pinwheels or star stakes etc.)
  • Gift zig-zag party packaging
  • Hot glue/Glue Gun

I purchased everything but the doll rods & Black paint (that I already had) from Dollar Tree!

1.  I started out by hot gluing 2 smaller Styrofoam balls onto a larger one to create Mickey’s Head. I painted the Mickey Head black, using black acrylic paint and a stencil brush.

3.  I cut the doll rods to the appropriate length (height) and then inserted one end into the bottom of the Mickey Head.

4.  I used another Styrofoam ball as the base and then inserted the other end of the doll rod there and then inserted the pinwheels on both sides, a little lower than the Mickey Head.

5.  I placed the base Styrofoam ball into the metal bucket and then filled it with dried beans to hold the ball and sticks in place

I topped the beans with the zig-zag gift packaging material and A Mickey Centerpiece was born!

So Easy…but so cute!

      Lydia, They are actually bandanas that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. They have a huge selection of open stock bandanas in all different colors, patterns and characters!
