DIY Minnie Mouse Knee Patch Pants and Shirt

If you have been a semi-long time reader, you know that we have a thing for Disney. I mean, who doesn’t? Saying you don’t like Disney is like saying you don’t like Santa Claus! Our love of Disney definitely skyrocketed when we became parents. Our little Disney loving princess made quite the impression on our family. In fact, on a phone call with Dave yesterday the point was made that there was no way he would have known that Minnie Mouse’s nieces ¬†were named Millie and Melody prior to being a dad. Gotta love the useless information kids put in our brains sometimes!

Speaking of that Disney loving child, I made her a new little outfit inspired by her favorite Disney diva, Minnie Mouse!

I love creating character inspired clothing because I know I can make it in a way that is modern enough for mom to like, but is character enough for the little to like!

These Minnie Mouse patch pants and shirt were the perfect combination of both! They were insanely easy to create!

Disneyland Character Dining Guide

When we went to Disneyland and California Adventure in November, I wanted it to be an extra special experience for us since it was the first time that my husband and daughter would be at Disneyland. I also wanted to try something that I had never done at Disneyland before, so I decided that character dining might be a great option for us. I did a lot of research before choosing our Disneyland character dining experiences and want to share what we experienced and what I have learned about them.

This quiet book has been highly anticipated at our house and has already been a huge hit! The great thing about most of these busy book activities is that they can easily become pretty gender neutral. Most of them aren’t incredibly obvious that they are themed after a Disney princess, but they make any princess loving little girl a happy one! The part that will make you happy is knowing that there is very minimal sewing! I am SO not one to sew much, so I did the bare minimum. To make your own, you need…

Frozen Elsa and Anna DIY Vinyl Cups

Frozen Elsa and Anna DIY Vinyl Cups are so easy to make!

DIY Frozen Cups on www.girllovesglam.com

You may remember my post about my Disney Princess cups I made. I have really loved those cups, but I kept getting requests for Frozen characters. Can I let you in on a little secret? That Disney princess cup project was something I did in early 2013, before any of us knew Anna and Elsa! After I started getting requests for Frozen cups, I knew I needed to make an Anna and Elsa to join the rest of the Disney Princess cup gang.

These are both pretty darn easy to make. I didn’t use any vinyl cutters for these because I wanted them to be something that ANYONE could make!

Here is what I used to make these… [Read more…]

Minnie Mouse Ears Toddler Hairstyle

I have a major Minnie Mouse fan at my house. One day as I was trying to think of something to do with her hair, she wasn’t really cooperating. I was kind of desperate to come up with an idea for her hair that she would sit still for. When I couldn’t think of anything, I asked her what kind of hair she wanted that day. I was not at all prepared for what she was about to throw at me… Minnie Mouse hair! Say what?! Minnie Mouse doesn’t even have hair! That is when I came up with the idea to do Minnie Mouse EARS as the toddler hairstyle instead of her hair that doesn’t actually exist.

Minnie Mouse Ears Hairstyle on www.girllovesglam.com

There are a few really great things about this hairstyle. One of the great things is that it is really easy to do, but what is probably the greatest thing is what happens if you do it when the hair is wet! If you do this hairstyle when the hair is wet, it turns out really smooth (Unlike the photos I have of the hairstyle. We were kind of a hot mess all together that day.), the hairstyle will usually stay looking good for at least another day after you have done it, AND when the buns start looking a little bent out of shape you can take them out and they leave the most adorable ringlets behind that make for a super cute ponytail on the last day. If your girls are anything like mine, they HATE getting their hair washed. This hairstyle is a saving grace that it lets me get away with not washing her hair for about 2 days, so we can enjoy bath time without the dreaded hair washing fight. [Read more…]

DIY Snow White Disney Princess Cup on www.girllovesglam.com #tutorial #vinyl #project

For the Snow White cup, I used vinyl that was dark blue, light blue, white, red, and yellow. I measured how big I wanted the pieces to be and cut the dark blue and yellow strips with a paper cutter. Then I added the white collar strip using the same technique. For the sleeves, you can cut them out with a vinyl cutter or scissors. I cut out a light blue circle then two red rounded diamond shapes to put on top of the sleeves. It was super easy and it turned out really well!

For the Rapunzel cup, I cut a strip of light purple and dark purple using the paper cutter. Then, I cut the pink vinyl into a bow shape and two smaller strips to look like to bow is lacing up. Lastly, I cut two dark purple circles out for the sleeves and put them on the sides of the cup. Cute and simple!

DIY Cinderella Disney Princess Cup on www.girllovesglam.com #diy #tutorial #disney #craft

For Cinderella, I used two different shades of blue vinyl. I cut one large strip of vinyl to cover the entire cup. I cut two circles out for the sleeves and a long scalloped piece to go around the bottom to mimic her dress. The easiest one to do for sure!

DIY Ariel Disney Princess Cup #tutorial #diy #littlemermaid #disney #craft

Although it isn’t a princess gown, I wanted the Ariel cup to be her mermaid bikini. To make this one, I used beige, green, and purple vinyl. I cut the beige vinyl into a strip and then the green vinyl into a strip below the beige. I cut out two circles out of the purple vinyl for the bikini top and a small purple strip to go along the back for the back of the bikini top. This one makes me giggle every time I look at it!
