  1. Cut out the Mickey template and use it to trace onto the cardboard. Repeat for as many tags as you need.

2. Use your pen to draw circles on the inside of Mickey’s head and each ear.

3. You may need to use a craft knife to cut out the inside circles if you are not able to get them with your scissors. Cut out these circles, then cut out the whole Mickey shape. It’s okay if the edges are rough! It will all be covered by yarn.

4. Choose your first color of yarn and cut a piece about 12 inches long. Designate one side of your Mickey shape as the back and one as the front. Glue one end of the yarn onto the back, then start wrapping! Glue the other end down when you get to the end and start a new color.

5. Wrap up your gifts, then use yarn as ribbon. To attach the Mickeys, I like to thread the yarn through a loop in the back or glue it right onto the top so that they aren’t covered at all by the rest of the yarn.

You can use these amazing string toppers to decorate presents or to add some fun to any decorations.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
