Tutorial: Disney Mickey Hair Clip


When I visited Disney World, I noticed several little girls wearing these beautiful jeweled Mickey hair clips. I asked one of the mothers where they got it since I hadn't seen them in any of the gift shops. She said they were given to them at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. Unfortunately, you have to be 12 or under to get your hair done there, and they weren't selling these clips separately.

I searched online stores and eBay for them but came up with nothing! I read on one message board that you can find them at Disneyland. Well since I probably won't be making it to Disneyland any time soon I decided to make one myself. ^.^

Edit: I made this several weeks ago, and this website says they have some in stock now! But if you don't want to spend $35 then you'll love my easy Mickey Hair Clip Tutorial! :)

The first thing I did was draw the shape onto a sheet of white craft foam. I cut it out carefully then painted it pink, blue and green.

Next, I glued down jewels on top of the corresponding colors. For some reason I didn't have blue jewels the same size as my pink and green so I had to use a size bigger for them.

After the jewels have dried well, position an alligator clip to the back. Try to make sure you can't see it from the front.

Now you can create a magical style of your own! Perfect for any fairy tale. :)


If you make a Mickey hair clip please share it with me! :)
