If you hadn't heard by now… WE WERE JUST AT DISNEY WORLD! Again. I mean, it's a tradition for us after three years of going every January but we were still STUPID excited.
This year though, we changed things up a bit and rented an RV to stay onsite at Disney's Fort Wilderness (a RV and camping resort). My husband was so excited about this – plus, the golf cart we rented to tool around the resort in.
At the suggestion of veteran Fort guests, we bought some battery operated lights to string up along the sides of the golf cart. This makes it easy to find in the parking lot (lots of people use golf carts).
But I thought, “Hey, if we're putting up lights – why not add a cute Disney themed garland, too?”. So I made one! Here's how to DIY a Mickey Mouse garland for your Fort Wilderness golf cart.
Mouse Banner For Fort Wilderness Golf Cart
- Click through this link to pull up the project in Cricut Design Space.
- Click the "Customize" button to change the size of the project OR click the "Make It" button to start cutting.
- Take the protective film off the 12"x12" fabric mat and adhere your piece of felt on it. Be sure to press it down all over to make it stick completely.
- Next, select the pink "Felt" option from the "Select Material" option. Then, be sure to load your rotary blade (gears in, plastic cover out) securely into the slot on the right in your Cricut Maker.
- Now, use the arrows button on your Cricut Maker to gently load the mat. Once the loaded, the "Cricut" button on your Cricut Maker will blink - push it to begin cutting.
- Repeat the loading and cutting steps as needed to cut all your banner pieces.
- Use your wedding tool and/or scraper to remove the felt pieces from the mats (the weeding tool is really helpful with the tiny threading holes on the letters).
- Cut a length of baker's twine (however long you need) and use the small holes in the felt pieces to thread them on the twine.
- Hang your banner and enjoy!
I just love it and Melanie thinks it's one of the greatest things I've ever made. It was super easy to transport on the plane, too. I just brought a plastic baggie with the cut outs and a long length of baker's twine in it.
I hung it up using the same 3M hooks I hung the lights off of. E A S Y.
