Kim loves almost anything Disney lol. Originally it was Tinkerbell but it sort of expanded from that. Now that she has a little one of her own I think it is going to blossom even more!
When I started to think about making them a Countdown to Christmas sign, a Disney character popped into my head. Knowing how much she likes Minnie, and considering that was the theme for my granddaughter’s first birthday, it seemed the perfect theme!
I was able to purchase and download a “Disney” font package from etsy.ca which helped tremendously and there are a ton of Free Minnie Mouse “heads” you can download on Pinterest.
Armed with all of that, and some of the fonts in Design Space, I put together the pattern for this Christmas Countdown sign for them!
Here is the pattern as shown in Design Space….
I bought a wooden canvas from the dollar store and base painted it a light blue colour. Don’t ask me why… for whatever reason, blue seemed the right colour for a Disney themed project lol… even though it is a Christmas sign… weird, huh?
Once the paint dried, I also gave it a quick, watered down a bit, coat of glitter glue…. just because it is a Christmas sign lol.
While the glue was drying I did the cutting and weeding of the vinyl.
I laid out my design on the now glittery blue wooden canvas to firm up the layout.
To apply the vinyl and make sure it stayed where I placed it, I held the piece down while folding back almost half of the backing paper. I stuck it to the surface and then removed the rest of the backing paper and the vinyl stayed where I wanted it to be! I did the same with all of the pieces, except for the stars because their placement didn’t have to be as exact.
Here is the finished Minnie Mouse Christmas Countdown Sign for Kim and Family!
