Mickey Head Christmas Ornaments

I made similar ornaments a few years back when I also made a Mickey shaped Christmas wreath.  I decided to make some more of these this year to add to a package that I was shipping overseas to some friends that adore Disney as much as I do!  Here are just a couple of the ornaments that I ended up making.  The pictures are not that good.  The lighting was poor and the ornaments are very glossy and shiny. 

I purchased these Shatter Proof Bulbs at Home Depot.  All I did was measure each side of the hanging part of the bulb and mark it with a Sharpie marker to make sure that the 'ears' would be even.  I then took a paper piercing tool to break through the large bulb where each of the smaller bulbs were going to be placed to make the ears.  Finally I took a small glue gun and pushed it through the hole made with the paper piercing tool to make it large enough to fit the stem of the small bulb in place adding a little glue to secure it into place. 

I have quite a few of these on our Chirstmas tree every year!  I loved these bulbs because I thought the larger bulb kinda looked the Space Ship Earth at Epcot!

These are great! I have a few of the "official" ear ornaments that I bought at Downtown Disney in Orlando, but you have inspired me to do some of my own! Love them!

Thanks ladies! They were super easy to make! Heather, I too have MANY of the "official" ear ornaments from WDW, but these large ones were much cheaper! lol Give it a shot, you won't be disappointed!
