Tips to Make This Mickey Farmhouse Mantle Decor

What Mat should I use with the chipboard?

I recommend using the strong grip mat and tape the corners down to cut the chipboard while using the light grip mat for the vinyl.

What if I can’t find those faux flowers?

Whatever type of faux flowers and such you already have on hand will work. I’m not big on running to the store (or Amazon) for every little thing and try to recycle what I can. If you have flowers that don’t match the theme, spray paint them, and they’ll have a whole new life!

Do I have to use the Cricut?

Sometimes when the kids are crafting with me, I don’t want to drag out the Cricut. But, because the Mickey silhouette is so simple, you can use regular scissors to cut it out, too. We love doing easy crafts!

Cheer up your mantle this holiday season with some Disney Magic! This simple DIY Buffalo Plaid Mickey Centerpiece to add a touch of disney to your farmhouse decor.

Materials

  • Buffalo Check Vinyl (I used Heat Transfer Vinyl because that’s what I had on hand)
  • 1 12x12 Sheet Chipboard
  • Floral Wire
  • Buffalo Check Poinsettia or other Faux Flower Element
  • Two Large Faux Pine Boughs
  • Mickey Silhouette Cut File
  • Floral Tape

Tools

  • Cricut EasyPress or Easy Press Mini (that’s what I used)
  • Cricut Maker
  • Deep Cut Blade
  • Masking Tape
  • Strong Grip Mat
  • Light Grip Mat
  • 1 Sheet Parchment Paper
  • Wire Cutters
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue

Instructions

  1. Download the Mickey silhouette cut file and upload it to Cricut Design Space. Follow the prompts to cut the shape from the buffalo check vinyl AND from the chipboard. I recommend that you use the strong grip mat and tape the corners down to cut the chipboard while using the light grip mat for the vinyl.
  2. Weed the unnecessary portions of vinyl from the vinyl design and discard. Place the design on the chipboard Mickey silhouette and, using the heat press, affix the vinyl to the chipboard. Allow the chipboard to cool completely (about 1-2 minutes) before removing the plastic protectant sheet.
  3. Place the two large faux pine boughs end-to-end with the ends overlapping. Use the floral tape to secure them together.
  4. Use the buffalo check poinsettia pick to cover the join of the two pine boughs and secure the poinsettia in place.
  5. Flip the Mickey silhouette element face-down and hot glue two pieces of floral wire about 6 inches long each to the back of the silhouette, about 1 inch from the bottom.
  6. Slip the Mickey silhouette between the poinsettia and the pine boughs and use the floral wires affixed to the silhouette to attach the silhouette to the pine boughs. Secure with hot glue if desired.
  7. Place on the mantel or add a hanger to the pine boughs to hang on the door!
