- Terra cotta pots
- Paint in red, black and white (I recommend Patio Paint for terra cotta)
- Paint brush
- Round sponge brush
- Red twine
- Red and white polka dot ribbon (NOTE: I bought this ribbon after the picture below was taken)
- Black felt
- Circle cutter
- Hot glue and glue gun
Start by painting your terra cotta pots. Paint the bottom portion red.
Allow the red to dry then paint the top portion black. Allow to dry completely before continuing. NOTE: Patio Paint usually covers in one coat but multiple coats may be needed if using another paint.
Add white dots with paint as shown below. I used the round sponge brush for Mickey and the wrong end of the paint brush for Minnie.
While the dots dry, you can make your ears. Cut round circles from the black felt.
Use hot glue to secure to the top of the pot as shown below.
Once dry, add red twine to hang your ornament through the hole in the bottom of the terra cotta pot. Knot the end as shown.
Minnie gets a pretty bow on top that is secured with hot glue.
These Disney inspired ornaments are ready to hang on your Christmas tree.
Your kids will love Mickey and Minnie hanging from the tree. Let them help with the painting of these easy to make holiday ornaments.
