Mickey Flower Pot DIY Craft

Here is a fun craft with some beautiful flowers to enjoy and even display your love for Mickey. When it came time to contribute to WDW Magazine recently, we took inspiration from our baby shower 2 years ago, which was Mickey-themed, and decided to recreate a Mickey Flower Pot that was the centerpiece of the food table.

Mickey flowers

 

Here is what you’ll need to get started:

1 flowerpot
Acrylic paint
Paintbrush
2 White Buttons
Hot Glue Gun / Glue
Skewer Stick
3 Styrofoam Balls (1 medium, 2 small)
Pretty flowers

Mickey Flower Pot-1

I was lucky enough to find a red flowerpot, so I didn’t have to paint it, but you can use any flowerpot you have or find and just paint it red using acrylic paint or spray paint.

To make the flowerpot look like Mickey’s shorts, just hot glue the 2 white buttons on the front of the flowerpot towards the top.

Place the flowers into the pot, adding additional dirt if necessary. Viola…you’re done with that part!

Mickey Flower Pot-3

Poke the skewer stick into the medium Styrofoam ball then remove it, put some hot glue in the hole and then reinsert the stick. This will help the Styrofoam ball stay in place. Then, make the Mickey ears by attaching the two smaller balls to the medium ball using hot glue. By using hot glue, it allows the two balls to mesh together.

Paint the Mickey head and the stick black.

Then, finish up by sticking the skewer stick with the Mickey head into the dirt.

Place in a spot to enjoy your own little Flower & Garden Festival at home!

      Walmart! We hadn’t been in Walmart in so long, but we knew we could find at least a few of the items in one place, but we found everything and that flower pot was super inexpensive!

    Thank you for the recommendation. You have some very good information on the blog. I have many plants and I really like your idea because now I can turn them all in pots like these. Take care!
