Simple DIY Disney tree ornament – Mickey Mouse

Easy DIY Disney tree ornaments - Mickey Mouse

Beautiful DIY Disney tree ornaments featuring the popular Mickey. They are very easy to make, but look extra pretty on the Christmas tree.

What you need:

  • Plastic ball ornaments
  • Glass paint
  • Soft brushes, large and small
  • Large paintbrush
  • Silver gilding
  • Ribbon

This Mickey Mouse Christmas ornament is very easy to make and looks wonderful on the tree


  1. First, prepare your surface. Clean and dry the clear balls.
  2. Apply 3 coats of paint and allow to dry for a few hours between coats. (Note: Some paints require more coats than others. Be aware of this when painting and repeat the process if necessary).
  3. You can paint one of the balls with silver gilding. If you use the gilding, be sure to have brush cleaner on hand, as it will not come off with soap and water. Also use the silver gilding to paint the tops of the ornaments.
  4. For the Mickey silhouettes, use black paint and a large brush. Draw a circle with the brush and then use a small brush to expand the circle. Make sure you have a steady hand when you do this. Don’t make the Mickey Heads if you just drank coffee.
  5. Tie the ribbons closed and you are done!

These ornaments are so cute that toddlers are instantly drawn to them! Make sure you hang them high on the tree!
