Easy DIY Mickey Mouse Fall Wreath

A few years ago I decided to combine two of my favorite things; Disney and Fall. This Mickey Mouse wreath always instantly puts a smile on my face. The best part is that it wasn't that hard to make. I'm sharing my process to inspire a little magic for your door.


I made the trip to the craft store not knowing exactly what I needed or wanted for this wreath. I found a beautiful grapevine wreath and two smaller ones that formed a perfect Mickey shape. I picked up some fall foliage and craft wire. I probably had way too much fun picking out fall foliage. Don't forget a glue gun too, if you don't already have one.


Next, I rushed home, laid it all out, and hoped for the best. Honestly, I had no clue what I was doing. I knew how I wanted it but wasn't quite sure how to secure it all together and make it last.
(Spoiler alert, I did somehow figure it out and it is still going strong several years later.)

I hot glued the wreath pieces to make the Mickey head. Is there a better option? Probably. Don't judge me. After it had time to dry, I wrapped the craft wire around the wreaths on both sides. This was to add some extra support.


Then it was time for the fall foliage. I kind of tucked the stems into the vines of the wreath and hot glued them. I decided on only putting it on half of the wreath and just a tiny bit on the other side to cover the wire. Why? Don't ask me but  I think it turned out pretty. You can play around with it before you hot glue it to get the look you want.


There you have it. If I can do, so can you. I am thinking this year I will try to make a Christmas Mickey wreath too and hopefully that one turns out as pretty as this one.
