DIY: Mickey Mouse Silhouette Tutorial
I recently transitioned my boys to separate bedrooms and with the change, I’ve had the pleasure of doing a little redecorating in each of their new spaces! I wanted to add some Disney magic to Duncan’s room and I decided to take on a DIY. I was super happy with how his Mickey silhouette turned out, and I think it completed his gallery wall with a sprinkle of pixie dust. From start to finish, this project took about 20 minutes. I did use my Cricut to complete it, but you can easily add in an extra step if you don’t have one to do this project.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 photo frame (I found mine at Michaels)
2 pieces of contrasting cardstock
Cricut (or scissors if you don’t have one)
Step 1. Download a printable silhouette. I found mine here, but there are so many amazing options to be found on Pinterest or Etsy if this one doesn’t suit your fancy.
Step 2. Size the printable to your frame. I did this after I converted the printable pdf to a png and uploaded it onto Cricut Design Space. Don’t know how to convert your pdf? You can easily do so here!
Step 3. If using a Criuct, prepare your materials, set your machine to cardstock, and let your machine do the work! If you do not have a Cricut, print your image on a piece of printing paper, trace it onto your cardstock, and cut the image out with scissors.
Step 4. Cut your “background” cardstock to a size that will fit your frame.
Step 5. Position your completed silhouette onto the background cardstock piece. Glue to secure.
Step 6. Slip the finished product into your frame, and you are done!
This project was so much fun! And bonus - the total cost ran about $10.00 - it doesn’t get more magical than that!
