Sharing helps me grow, thank you!

Looking for a unique and adorable Mickey Disney holiday T-Shirt to wear to the parks this season? Or just something fun to add a bit of Disney magic to your at-home holidays? I whipped this one up for my son in about 30 minutes and you can too, it’s really easy! This peppermint design would be really cute for the entire family to wear at Disney during the holiday season. I made this Disney holiday t-shirt quickly on Friday night. My son wore it Saturday when we celebrated Disneyland holidays! He received so many compliments on it (even from Santa’s elves!)

Disney DIY Craft for Kids - Peppermint Mickey Holiday T-shirt

You’ll only need a few things to create this Peppermint Disney Holiday T-shirt!

Solid color cotton t-shirt (Primary.com shirts and dresses are perfect. Use the code AFF20PCT for 20% off your first order).

White cotton fabric (I always use Kona Cotton White Fabric)

Fabric Adhesive (I only use Thermoweb Heat’n Bond Ultra Hold Iron-On Adhesive)

Red fabric paint & a paintbrush (I use DecoArt SoSoft Fabric Paint and Martha Stewart Crafts Detailing Brushes)

Other things you’ll need:

A print out of a Mickey silhouette. I just did a Google search and found one online. Alternately you could just make your own circles and place them in a Mickey head shape.

Iron

Sewing machine with white thread

Disappearing Ink Pen for Fabric

Instructions for the Disney Holiday T-Shirt:

Prewash and dry the t-shirt and white fabric, then iron both smooth.

Lay Heat’n Bond adhesive on the Mickey silhouette (bumpy side down) and trace the shape.

Cut around the Heat’n Bond silhouette, then iron onto the white fabric.

Cut out the silhouette carefully on the line.

Peel off the adhesive backing and center the shape onto the t-shirt. Once you have it in position, iron/press according to the Heat’n Bond instructions.

On your sewing machine, sew along the scant edge of the silhouette to secure the design to the t-shirt.

To recreate the peppermint design, I did a Google search for “peppermint candy” and found a simple image. Using your disappearing ink pen, carefully replicate the design on to the large circle of Mickey’s silhouette. Repeat the design inside each of the smaller circles of Mickey’s ears.

Using red fabric paint, paint the peppermint design. Use a thicker brush to fill in the design and a small, thin brush along the edges to create a clean edge.

Keep the shirt flat for at least 12 hours or overnight to dry.
