Disney DIY Home Decor Projects

Happy Tuesday! I hope that you’re all having a wonderful day!

A few weeks back, I saw a few Disney DIY decor pieces on Pinterest and YouTube that I wanted to try for myself. Like I’ve said multiple times, I used to craft all of the time, but I really got away from it in the last few years. But, with the thought of finally filling my home with some decor (I’ve really been slacking in the decor department since we moved in last year), I thought I’d give it another try.

While Stephen was at the beach last weekend, I took a trip to Michaels, The Dollar Tree and Walmart to pick up some crafting supplies for a “DIY Weekend.”

My goal was to make the following decor pieces from MissAllieCakes on YouTube:

I also wanted to add something else to our dining room table to help tie in our two household themes (which are currently wine and Disney), so stay tuned to see what I created!

Beauty and the Beast Vases via MissAllieCakes

What you’ll need:

  • Two small glass vases
  • Sharpie Markers
  • Fake flowers

Instructions:

  1. First, use a black Sharpie marker to draw geometric shapes on the vases.
  2. Then, color in the shapes with various colored sharpie markers.
  3. Finally, add fake red roses, and you’re done! Easy as pie!

I just love the way that these turned out!

Mickey Head Floral Centerpiece via MissAllieCakes

What you’ll need:

  • Three styrofoam balls, one large and two smaller ones (for the ears)
  • Two wooden skewers (I used toothpicks and they worked just as well)
  • Roughly 75-100 fake flowers (depending on how big you want to make your Centerpiece – I used 75)
  • A glass candle holder (I used a wooden one that I found at Michaels because it matched my dining room better)
  • Hot glue gun

Instructions:

  1. Hot glue the largest styrofoam ball to the candle holder.
  2. Skewer the two smaller styrofoam balls into the larger one to create the ears. Again, I used toothpicks, which worked well for my centerpiece. I reenforced the toothpicks with some hot glue so that my ears would stay in place.
  3. Rip the top of each flower off and layer the bottom with hot glue. Stick the flower into the styrofoam balls until they are covered. It’s that simple!

HOW CUTE?! This is by far my favorite craft that I’ve ever made!

And, finally….

Shimmery Gold Wine Bottle Vases

What you’ll need:

  • Gold glitter spray paint
  • Two wine bottles, cleaned
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam paint brush
  • Burlap string/yarn
  • Fake flowers

I really went on a limb for this craft and did not follow any specific instructions.

  1. First, I spray painted the wine bottles with the gold glitter paint. I used two coats, and I let the bottles dry overnight before attempting the next steps.
  2. After the paint was dry, I covered both bottles in a layer of Mod Podge to keep the glitter from falling off of the bottles.
  3. After the Mod Podge dried, I took the burlap string and cut four 12-inch pieces. Then, I took two of the pieces and tied them around the tops of each bottle.
  4. And finally, I added three fake sunflowers to each bottle.

I am so incredibly happy with how this craft turned out – especially because I made it up as I went along.

I am so in love with how all three of these crafts look in our house! And, I can be proud that I created these by myself – how cool?!

I’d like to thank MissAllieCakes on YouTube for her wonderful tutorials on the floral centerpiece and stained glass vases. Be sure to check out her channel for even more DIYs!

I plan to do a few more DIY projects in the near future, so I’ll be sure to share those with all of you as well.

Happy crafting!
