DIY Merch to Save You Money

Something a lot of people don’t realize about loving something is that it kind of costs a lot of money! But we’re here to save you tons of money and let you show your pride for your fave things! Let’s get started!


DIY DISNEY PHONE SATCHEL

WHAT YOU’LL NEED…

Start by printing and cutting out our paper template. Trace both paper templates onto the back of the faux leather. Trace two small rectangles and two of the Mickey ear templates. Next, cut along the dotted line on the template and trace out this new rectangular shape. Cut everything out. Use a thin paintbrush to add edge coat to all of the cut edges of your leather.

 

Next, take your two Mickey ear pieces and glue them together using some fabric glue - raw sides together. Next, grab your larger rectangular piece and place that on top of your Mickey ear pieces. Next, grab your small rectangular pieces and thread them through your D rings. Slide this fabric between your large rectangle and mickey ear piece and pin to hold all of these in place. Go ahead and sew all the way around the mickey ear pieces, holding everything in place. Once everything is sewn, trim the fabric along the seam to tidy things up. Go ahead and use edge coat on all of the raw edges.

To finish this off, grab your thrifted belt and cut off the buckle ends. Wrap the belt around the D rings and fabric glue the belt into place around the ring. We used a binder clip to hold everything in place while it dries.

DIY FLORAL MICKEY EARS

WHAT YOU’LL NEED…

  • Floral foam circle (the non-crumbly kind)

  • A headband

  • Exacto knife

  • Faux flowers

  • Hot glue gun

Start by cutting your floral foam in half using an exacto knife, making the circle thinner. Use a marker to mark where your headband will sit against the floral foam and cut this small semi-circle out using your exacto knife.
