How to make a Mickey ornament:

How to make a Mickey ornament. Buy plastic ornaments, one large and two smaller. Instructions top to bottom: 1) Measure and mark on each side the same distance that looks good for ear placement. I marked at 1" down. Remove the hook caps from the two smaller ornaments. 2) Use a high temp glue gun tip to press into the ornament to form a hole big enough for the top of the smaller balls. 3) Add some hot glue to the top of the smaller ball and then press inside the hole. Hold until secure. Repeat on other side 4) Done! You can glue other embellishments on it as well. - DesperateMousewife  877.4 #209 6:14PM

Creative, Thanks for the DIY...I'm gonna try it! - DisneyFreak  7.2 #13902 9:12PM
I think it's time for a "Craft tips from DMW" segment on MW. I might have to do this, seeing as on Saturday my daughter dropped the Disneyland ornament we got there this year, like I do every trip, and it shattered in a million pieces. They broke the one from last year, too. - Melody  21.1 #7136 10:29PM

E-Ticket - Let me encourage you to make time, just don't do something else. Like sleep. Sleeping is so overrated. Having just a little bit of creative time does so much for the soul. IMO. - DesperateMousewife  877.4 #209 12:18PM
I TOTALLY agree with this. Creative time is VERY important! - misschurro  6362.1 #17 7:25PM
