Disneyland Bling T-shirt DIY

Ok I am going to be honest with you, I did not come up with this idea on my own. I follow the blog InspiredbyDis.com and I love everything she posts, including instructions on how to do this t-shirt! I saw her post on how to do a Disneyland “D” t-shirt for the Disneyland 60th anniversary, and I just knew I had to do one as well.  So my friend came over and we worked on our shirts together, awesome way to spend the afternoon.

I followed Mindy’s instructions and it worked perfectly!

Materials:

1. Pre washed t-shirt

2. stencil from her blog (link to blog here)

3. rhinestones (I found mine at Hobby Lobby, and to be honest the little crowns on the collar are actually confetti found at the dollar store, so anything goes)

3. E6000

Instructions

1. print and cut out stencil

2. position it on your shirt, with cardboard under it so the glue doesn’t leak to the back

3. Start laying out your design. It took me a few tries, but I found one that worked for me. InspiredbyDis did hers in blue for Disneyland’s 60 Anniversary, but I decided on a pink and purple design.

4.  Start gluing with your E6000.

5. Because I love adding bling, I decided to add some more rhinestones along my collar. It added the right amount of sparkle to make my shirt complete.

6. That is it, wait until it is completely dry to wear and wash. I would wash on cold and line dry.

7. Go to Disney and show off your awesome shirt!

Here is my friend’s shirt, I love the blue! She didn’t add any to the collar, but she did add an iron on Tinkerbell that she printed off her computer onto iron on transfer paper (sorry the pic is fuzzy). I love the detail, it finishes out her shirt perfectly.

DIY glow in the dark Minnie Ears

Well I did a post on Glow in the dark Mickey Ears that I made for my boys. So I decided to make a set of Minnie ears for me. These are even easier than the Mickey ears!

20150725_135544

 

Here I am wearing them in my backyard during the day so you can see that they still look great in the day time.

Material

1. Headband

2. bow ( I used a premade bow, but you can make your own)

3. Glow in the dark bracelets

4. Electrical tape

5. Hot glue

 

Instructions:

1. Take the bracelet connector and tape it using electrical tape to the headband. I used electrical tape because it is black and blends in better. I did try to glue the connector, but it did not stay at all. So tape was the way to go.

2. Hot glue the bow to the head band

3. Crack the bracelet and connect it to the headband and then you are done! Easy as that!

Now you have easy DIY glow in the dark ears that didn’t break the bank!

DIY Glow in the Dark Mickey Ears

To really enhance your Disney Experience Glow in the Dark ears are a must. I just wasn’t willing to pay a ton of money for the ears. And, my husband only wanted to wear his ball cap that he already owned because he is cheap and didn’t want to spend the money for a new hat and he loves how it fits him (at least it is a Disney one.)  So I decided to create my own glow it the dark ears with a hat he already owned. It worked so well I made them for the whole family. I made a Minnie Ears for me, I will do a post on those later.

IMG_20150125_180333_956 My son is such a good sport, even though he is a teenager, he wore his Mickey ears all week! Red heart

 

By using a ball cap and some safety pins and glow in the the dark bracelets you can create an interchangeable glow in the dark hat.

We would put a new bracelet at night and enjoy the evening festivities then in the morning we would leave the bracelets in the hat even thought they didn’t glow anymore. Then in the evening we would throw the bracelet away and put a new one so we would be ready to glow the night away.

This is so easy, and the best part is when you get home you take off the safety pins and  your cap is back to normal

 

Materials:

1. Hat

2. Safety Pins

3. Felt

4. Glue (I just used hot glue)

5. Glow in the dark bracelets (here are some from Amazon) I got mine from the dollar store, 20 for a dollar!! Necklaces were too big so

 

Instructions:

1. Get a hat you would like to add ears to.

2. I used 2 safety pins and glued them to a small piece of felt. Make sure you don’t glue the safety pin closed, I learned this from personal experience.

3. Glue the bracelet connector piece to the felt. This part will stay and you just change out the bracelet part.

4. Pin the safety pins to the hat. This took me a couple of tries to get the right placement. And the ears tended to flop around until someone was wearing it.

5. Crack the bracelet to activate the glow and insert it into the connector.

6. Wear your hat with pride and love that you are glowing for just a few pennies!

We got tons of complements on our hats, day and night!

I would love to see your hats that you create!

Easy DIY Mickey Button Earrings!

20150630_130943These are super simple, and are easy enough to make a bunch or have your kiddos help.

So simple to make

Materials:

2 larger buttons

4 smaller coordinating buttons

earring backs

hot glue

20150630_131343 20150630_131335

All you do is find some buttons that go together and glue them in a Mickey shape. (This is my favorite part, I love digging through buttons. It reminds me of when I was a little girl, my mom was always sewing something for us and we were always digging through her buttons)

Then glue it on an earring back. Wear them with pride!

See easy, right

I think I will need to make more in all the colors of the rainbow and make a bigger one for a necklace.

Disney Bottle cap Jewelry

I love going to Disney, I think I have mentioned it once or twice:)

20150611_070727

So every time I go I make new things to take with me. Well, we are headed to Disneyland in a few weeks so I decided I needed new jewelry. These are so easy to make.

Materials

Bottle caps (I found a bunch on Amazon)

Bottle caps prints (I just Googled for free images, but you can purchase some really cool images from Etsy). After I found my prints I just printed them up on my little photo printers so that the images were glossy. You can send them out to print or print them on you home printer. If you use regular paper in an ink jet printer I would coat the top with mod podge or some kind of sealer.

Circle punch about the same size as your image, or if you are steady you can free hand cut out the image

glue, I hot glued the image to the bottle cap and used e6000 to glue the cap to the jewelry. But you can use what works for you.

Directions:

This is so simple:

  1. print images
  2. cut out images
  3. glue to bottle cap
  4. coat image if needed (I didn’t with the photo paper)
  5. glue the bottle cap to your ring or
  6. punch hole in the top of the bottle cap and add a jump ring for a necklace or add a hook earring for earrings or glue a pin back on for a pin. The options are endless!

That is it, pretty easy right? Now you have really cool custom jewelry to wear at Disney, or all the time.

Here are some I completed. I can’t wait to wear them at Disney!

Steampunk Disney Magic Band

We went to Walt Disney World in January so we got to try out the new Magic Bands. This was my first time using them, and overall I was impressed. But I couldn’t just leave it plain, oh no! I needed to decorate it!

I decided on a Steampunk tribute to Beauty and the Beast.

Update 4.4.2017: I just uploaded a video to You Tube describing this in more detail. Check it out: Steampunk Magic Band You Tube Video

Here is the finished Magic Band! I have to say, I really love how it turned out!

Finished Magic Band

Top of finished magic band

I think it turned out pretty cool. Unfortunately there are no pictures of me during the creation processes, but I do have the finished product. I wore it every day for a week and it held up great. I was gentle with it, but not overly so. I only had 1 piece fall off and I just replace it that night. I brought with me a small bottle of E6000 and some spare pieces for just such an occasion.

Material needed

  1. E6000
  2. Steampunk pieces ( I found mine in the jewelry section at Michael’s)
  3. Watch face (I found mine on Etsy)
  4. Rhinestones (again, Michael’s to the rescue).
  5. Nail polish and top coat
  6. Empty water bottle to hold Magic Band while you are working

Here is what I did to decorate the Magic Band

  1. I cut the band down to size so it fit me.
  2. I put the band around a water bottle so that I could work on it.
  3. I painted the band with nail polish in 2 colors. I can’t remember what the colors were but one was a Sally Hansen and the other was an OPI. I used several coats to get the color I wanted. The inside part is a different color from the outside edge.
  4. Then I put a few layers of top coat of nail polish on.
  5. Then I started gluing on the pieces with E6000. I started with a few pieces and then started adding a few more. I wanted a layered look that had a lot going on, but not too much…
  6. I went over the top of the rhinestones with top coat so that they would stay down. This did take away from the shine, but they stuck better.
  7. As you decorate make sure you don’t cover your Mickey head, it won’t work if you do (believe me, originally I did have something covering the Mickey and it didn’t work so I had to take my repair kit out and fix it…)
  8. I added a watch face to my Magic Band. I wore it on my left wrist, right where I wear my watch and I didn’t want to have to wear both, so I added a watch to my Magic Band. It worked great! The watch stayed on perfectly and worked the whole time!

I think that is everything I did. Let me know if you have questions and I will be happy to answer. I would love to see your versions of your Magic Bands!

Here are a few more pictures from all different angles. I wore it with the Mickey facing out and the watch face on the inside so I could see it.
