If you are also a huge lover of Disney and of crafting you have come to the right place. If you have already read our 11 Christmas Crafts For Kids To Make, then you can adopt any of our ideas here to them. We’ve listed some fun Disney related crafts you can do with your friends and family the days following up to Christmas Day.
While you are creating these magical crafts you could even watch some classic Disney films on Disney+ if you have it or listen to a Disney soundtrack on Spotify to keep the Disney spirit high.
Disney obviously has a fair few franchises within the company such as Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars and Disney itself (Princesses, etc.). with the following ideas listed you can change and apply your favourite Disney theme or franchise to the craft to make it personal to you.

When it comes to creating baubles you can do anything to them in regards to decorating and making them Disney related. You could create a bauble with Oogie Boogie from The Nightmare Before Christmas, Captain America’s shield from Captain America: The First Avenger or even Tinkerbells wings from Peter Pan-like they say ‘all you need is faith, trust, and pixie dust’.
All you need is some clear baubles, or coloured ones if you know exactly what you are going to make. Then gather the materials you think you’ll need for any accessories; paper or card to cut out and make wings if you choose to make a Tinkerbell bauble. All you will really need is either paint or pens and a pencil to sketch out your Disney Christmas Bauble design.
To make your baubles a little more magical, if you choose to buy clear baubles, by pouring some glue with water or floor finish into your baubles swirl it around and leave to drain. After you can pour some glitter in and swirl that around so that the glitter sticks to the inside of the bauble. Or just simply fill the bauble halfway or less with glitter so that when you shake it the glitter shakes around inside.
By purchasing two or three (just in case) Christmas wreaths, carefully removing one of the wreaths garlands from the wiring and then distributing the garland across two small circular forms to represent the ears.
You will be left with one intact wreath which is Mickey’s face and with your new handmade wreath ears, you can attach the ears to the face of Mickey. Leaving you with your Mickey Mouse Wreath to hang on your door or even decorate further with some ribbon or small baubles.
Toy Story Christmas Tree Toppers
Rather than sticking with either the traditional Angel or Star Christmas Tree Topper, this Christmas top your tree with something from your favourite Disney film. This could be Ellie and Carl’s House with balloons from UP, The Sun from Tangled or the Luxo Ball from Toy Story.
The Luxo Ball from Toy Story still has a star on the decoration, so this is perfect if you want to incorporate the classic star aspect within your Disney craft creation. All you need is red, yellow and blue paper, some glue and some scissors. This easy and fun Christmas Tree Topper will be a great alternative for your tree this year!
Mickey Mouse Sign Posts
To help your guests and Santa find their way to your house, make some signs to guide them to gift central. If you are able to you can buy some planks of wood and paint them to make sturdy long-lasting signs to not only last you through this year but following years after. If you are unable to purchase planks of wood, poster board or even cardboard will do just as well.
By painting your design onto your chosen material you will be able to create large signposts for your guests and Santa to follow. Your signposts could even be specifically for the kiddies of the family, guiding them on a quick scavenger hunt before they open their presents.
