Jazz up your Thanksgiving table this year, Disney style, with this simple DIY. Place setting cards are a functional and festive way to dress up your tablescape, so why not incorporate our favorite mouse?
- 2 different sizes of round wooden beads (large for the head, and smaller for the ears)
- wooden spacer beads
- black acrylic craft paint
- paint brush
- hot glue gun
- assorted craft feathers
- gift tags or similar for place setting cards
- string or ribbon
*The number of beads you will need will depend on how many turkeys you are making. Remember each Mickey head needs two ears.
STEP 1: PAINT BEADS Paint beads with the black acrylic paint and allow to dry.
STEP 2: MAKE IT MICKEY-SHAPED Carefully assemble the Mickey turkey using the hot glue gun.
STEP 3: FEATHERS Carefully attach the feathers to the Mickey turkey body using your hot glue gun. Get creative.
STEP 4: PLACE CARD With string or ribbon, tie the personalized place card around the turkey’s neck. (I find it easier to personalize the place cards before attaching to the turkey.)
DO I HAVE TO PAINT MY BEADS? Absolutely not, you can leave them natural or paint them any color you’d like.
WHAT IF I WANT TO GET RID OF THE BEAD HOLES? If you don’t like seeing the bead holes, you can always fill them in with wood filler before painting.
