I showed you how to use these nifty Mickey-Mouse-shaped paint samples to color code your pinata! Now here are some simple ideas to use them for party hats, centerpieces and a party banner!
For the Mickey banner I got the Mickey Mouse head paint samples at my local Home Depot–as I would walk out of the store each week I would secretly pray that I didn’t get stopped by security with 50+ paint samples in my purse. I guess I could have blamed it on the pregnancy hormones and being indecisive with the nursery colors–but I’ve seen worse on Pinterest!
Carefully peel off the mickey paint sample from the paper backing–be extra careful because they can easily tear and get fold marks. Next, I used an all-purpose permanent glue stick to glue two Mickey heads together. Then, I used a standard hole punch and punched a hole on the top of one of the ears. I got some jute twine (also at Home depot–hey I had to make an actual purchase some time!) and tied each Mickey to the large piece. Hang and admire!
I bought these paper party hats at Target for $2. I just peeled off the mickey paint samples and glue-sticked them onto the front of each hat (they were color-coded to match each child’s pinata bag and gifts). Then, I found these sticker letters in my mound of scrapbooking stuff and did each child’s first initial and my birthday boy’s age. Simple!
You can find these balloon weights at the Dollar Tree (yes, for like a dollar!!!). All I did was peel the Mickey paint samples off (2 of each color) and use that same old glue stick on several of the wires in the bouquet. I used these to keep the tablecloths from flying away!
Don’t blame me if you get stopped at the door at Home Depot with your pockets full of Mickeys!
