Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Birthday Party Ideas




I know I'm not the only one who looks at *anything* red and imagines how it can be turned into a super adorable Mickey Mouse inspired creation.  Please, tell me that I'm not the only one....  Anyhow, I can not believe that I didn't think of this idea sooner.....Red Solo cups as Mickey's pants!!  So inexpensive and really easy to do!  Can be used as party cups or as the base of a treat bag.   


While cruising the aisles of the Dollar Tree last month, I came across these little plastic storage bins.  At the time, I did not know what I would do with them.  My inner Dollar Tree voice said...  "at 4 for a dollar, buy them now and figure it out later..."  So I bought 6 packs of 4.   I'm so glad that I did!


What you'll need


I am almost embarrassed to actually type out instructions for this...  Using a 1" circle paper punch, punch out two white circles out of card stock.  Using a low temp hot glue gun,  glue the buttons onto the cup.  Done.  Seriously, how easy is that!!




 I found black striped paper straws at Michaels for $2.  I punched out Mickey heads using my Mickey paper punch and black card stock.  I used a tiny drop of hot glue to glue the Mickey Heads about an inch down the straw.   

Finished product, how cute?!




Onto the base of the treat bag: Just like the cups, hot glue the 1" circles to the front of the container.  Fill with candy and tie with a yellow ribbon.  I added a Mickey head punch-out to the bow.

Finished treat bag :)




I made these Mickey inspired cupcakes using half of an Oreo and two mini Oreos as the ears.  Red icing and two white chocolate chips as the buttons.  So simple.  

Let me know what you think, comment below!

  17. Amazing and crafty. It's just they way I like my tasks. Just a silly question. For the mini storage bins. What size cellophane bags did you use?

I want to have Mickey mouse wedding reception and will do all the arrangements on my own so your ideas will be helpful. Now I just have to find some good NYC wedding venues for this themed bash.
