Happy Everything Mini Mickey

One of my all time favorite decorative items is my Happy Everything Plate .  There aren’t many things in my cabinet that can take on so many different celebrations with just a quick change of a topper!  The company makes darling attachments for everything from holidays to sports to seasons to just plain every day, but they don’t have one for Disney.  Since we celebrate the Mouse so frequently, I set out to make my own.  I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out and can’t wait to use them as a count down before our next trip to Disney!!

For less than $6, I got four 5” wood Mickey silhouettes from this shop on etsy.

While I had all the paints out for my custom painted TOMS shoes, I threw a base coat of chalkboard paint on two and then dressed up the other two with Mickey’s signature red “shorts” and a couple of buttons.

I started out with the intention of using them as Christmas ornaments, but think I’m going to hold off on that and might use them as place cards or plate attachments for a while longer.

I simply glued a small strip of velcro to the back of each one to get it to attach to the base.  Since these are so lightweight, it is just enough to hold them secure.

  1. Hope you have a wonderful time at Disney! I'm jealous, I'm ready to go back. Enjoy all the Christmas decorations, rides, and fun & may all the lines be short.

  2. Have you seen the Pandora disney charms? They could go on a leather bracelet as well as the silver. I was choosing a charm for my birthday, and saw the Mickey and Minnie charms…very cute.

  3. Great idea to make your own when your occasion is not available! Will have to remember this since I'm giving my DIL one of the mini platters as a Christmas gift!
