Mickey Earth Day Suncatcher

Happy Earth Day and Happy 23rd Birthday to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park! Today I am sharing an easy Earth Inspired craft (with a Disney twist, of course!).

To start, you will need:

White Poster Board

Tissue Paper

Tracing Paper

Glue (I used Elmer’s Clear Glue)

Scissors

Tape

To start, trace and cut out a Mickey shape from your poster board. This Mickey can be as big or as little as you want it to. Then, cut out the middle of the Mickey shape, leaving about one inch of poster board around the sides. Set this aside.

Next take out a piece of tracing paper. Depending on how big your Mickey head is, you might need to tape two pieces of tracing paper together like I did.

Cut your tissue paper into small squares.

Using a minimal amount of glue, carefully glue your tissue paper onto your tracing paper. You can either do this randomly or in a specific pattern (I made one random and one to look like planet Earth). When you are done with the tissue paper, glue your poster board Mickey cutout on top. Allow this to dry.

Once the glue is dry, carefully cut around the outside of the Mickey shape.

Using tape, hang these on a window in your house and enjoy!

Sending love and magic.
