Make merry magical with this adorable Disney Minnie Mouse Glitter Ornament. It’s an easy DIY craft for your Christmas tree.
Hi friends! I hope your holiday season has been delightful thus far. The season tends to get a bit hectic so I am making it a point this year to stop, breathe and enjoy the beauty of the season. Speaking of this beautiful season, I just finished putting up my Disney Christmas tree. I have the cutest pencil shaped tree  in my kitchen that I have all my special Disney ornaments on. Some of them are from past trips to   I shared a few weeks ago. Well, Mickey needed his partner in crime so I whipped up this Minnie Mouse Glitter Ornament over the weekend. Isn’t she purrrty??

  • Clear plastic ornament
  • Red Acrylic Paint
  • Black Acrylic Paint
  • Red Glitter Paint
  • Black Glitter Paint
  • Chunky White Iridescent Glitter
  • Red Glittery Ribbon
  • Polka Dot Ribbon
  • Glue Gun
  • Mod Podge or Craft Glue
Paint Brush
Begin by sectioning off the ornament with a rubber band. Place rubber band about 2/3 from the top. You can also use painters tape. Paint bottom half with red acrylic paint. Allow to dry and then add a layer of the red glitter paint. Remove the rubber band and repeat the process for the top portion using the black paints. Once the ornament is dry, dip a paint dabber  in the Mod Podge. Then, sprinkle with the iridescent glitter

Her skirt should look something like this. You can make her polka dots smaller by using a smaller dabber.
I finished her off by adding a pretty bow at the top. Minnie always has a bow in her hair. I also glued a piece of glittery red ribbon around the center where the two colors meet.
