One fun extra thing you can do while cruising on a Disney ship is decorate your state room door. I might have gone a little overboard this trip but I was excited to try out a few ideas. The first idea was just making little mickey ears with everyone’s name written on the hat. This idea went to the next level when I decided to make a little Donald hat for my mom’s Mickey ears (because this is her favorite character). I had a lot of fun with this one so I decided to try a few more. <!–more–>
I LOVE how they turned out! All of this just out of some card stock and rubber cement.
Make sure to check out the current ship rules about hanging thing up on your door. Currently you must only use magnets, no tape allowed.
Mickey Ear Name Signs
Materials / tools
Use your Silhouette studio software to create the hats and cuts. Make sure to use a stencil cut for the names so it will all be in one piece.
After they are cut, remove them from the cutting mat.
Cut strips of yellow card stock so it can cover the name hole. Use rubber cement to glue it in place.
Once rubber cement is dry, rub off the excess.
Add an adhesive strip magnet to the back and they are ready for your cruise ship door!
What to have more fun? Create little hats for your Mickey Ears! We even had hats made for pirate night theme.

This is yet another Christmas present that I made last season. I have to give full create for the coaster idea over to Megan at Polish the Stars. She made some wonderful Super Mario coasters that I fell in love with. After talking it over with my brother we decided that I should make ninja turtles for my cousin instead. Here is what I came up with: Continue reading
After last year’s Christmas gifts my brother made a request that I make gifts for him every year. This would be so much easier if I lived within driving distance. Trying to figure out a homemade gift that will travel well is hard.
I have wanted to try to make string art for a while now so I decided to combine that with staining pallet wood. I decided to try to stain my bother and sister-in-law’s wedding date in the center and weave a string art heart around it. Continue reading
First of all I would like to apologize for the long break between posts. After the holiday season we had a whirlwind of activity with our move to Oslo, Norway! We are now getting settled in our temporary housing so that I have some free time to post about all the Christmas gifts I have made for friends and family. I will post more about our Norway move later this week. Continue reading
I recently got the opportunity to be sponsored by My Vinyl Direct. I love working with vinyl and have used it on multiple Christmas gifts this season. I am going to have a flood of craft posts as soon as all these gifts are given. Continue reading
Recently I got the honor of attending my cousin’s 1st birthday party. As soon as I got the invitation I set off to make this little princess something special for her big day. I ended up coming across a modern rocking horse design on Ana White’s website and decided this would be the perfect gift. Continue reading
This past weekend I went on an adventure with a few friends to cut down Christmas trees. Did you know you can cut down a Christmas tree from a national forest? All you need to do is get a $10 permit from the ranger’s station before heading up into the forest. Continue reading
Alex and I attended a couple beautiful weddings this summer and I wanted to make a fun gift for the two couples. After a quick search for wedding gifts on Pinterest I came across different variations of using paper hearts arranged in a shadow box. I loved the look of these and decided to take the idea a step further and used the lyrics for their first dance song for the background. Continue reading
We have way too many dog treats for our dog. Yes, we do spoil her but she is so much happier when she has a large variety of flavors and types of treats. We recently started subscribing to BarkBox, so Zoey now gets new treats every month. We keep her treats on the counter and my husband (who hates any kind of clutter) pointed out with the expansion of dog treats was not looking very presentable.
Really, what is better than a patio table with a built in cooler! Who really wants to get up to get another beer? Continue reading
