Make the cutest Minnie Mouse ornaments with items from The Dollar Tree for only $3!

Grab these supplies and some hot glue for adorable Disney-inspired ornaments.

Supplies from The Dollar Tree

You will have to spend $3 to create two Minnie Mouse ornament from these Dollar Tree supplies.

I found the little red and green bows in the Christmas section. If you aren't able to find them you can definitely make your own from ribbon (I have done this and it's super easy).

The willow balls are in the crafting section close to the flower arranging supplies.

If you want them to really hold together nicely you'll want to use high temp hot glue.

I started by using the twist tie to attached the bow.

I cut the ends of the silver twist tie off and secured it with some hot glue.

I wouldn't trust the twist tie to stay on by itself.

Next, I applied a triangle of hot glue to the larger ball where I wanted to place the first "ear" i.e. smaller ball.

I placed the smaller ball in the glue triangle and pressed down for 30 seconds or so.

After it dried initially, I went back and added a bunch more hot glue to both pieces to make sure it is secure.

I tried to do this mostly on the back so the globs aren't visible from the front.

I used a piece of twine that I ran through some of the willow stems as a hanger.

You could also use string or wire - anything you have on hand will work!

And there you have it! Your adorable little Minnie Mouse ornament is done. This would definitely cost $20 at Disney World LOL.

I love the rustic look of these ornament and how EASY they are to make.

I made some as Christmas gifts for my Disney-loving friends last year.

If you want to make a six ornaments, you'll need the following supplies:

  • Two bags of large willow balls ($2)
  • Three bags of small willow balls ($3)
  • One pack of bows ($1)

So that works out to $1 per ornament.

To make two it was only $1.50 per ornament which is an amazing price.
