Love Disney? Me, too! Create this fun Mickey Pocket Hoop Craft for a fun decorative wall display for your craft room, home or office.
Keep all those Disney memories together in one place with a Mickey Embroidery Hoop Pocket craft. Quick and easy with supplies from the craft store.
Note: You can also purchase these material items at The Dollar Tree store for less.
Trace two 3” circles (on the back) onto to black craft felt with a white chalk pencil. Plain white chalk or even a white crayon would work for this step.
Cut out the two circles with scissors, inside the lines, so you have a clean finished project. Loosen the screw at the top of the embroidery hoop and separate the inner and outer hoops.
Layer the red felt on top of the black felt, so that 4” of the black is at the top and 3” of the red is at the bottom. Fit the felt loosely into the embroidery hoop. Pull felt gently from the back to ensure the felt is taught and then tighten the screw at the top of the hoop.
Trim the excess felt from the back of the embroidery hoop with scissors. Apply a thin line of glue with a glue gun to the cut edge of the felt to secure. Felt craft sheets are the perfect way to get a variety of colors without spending a lot of money. NOTE: You can use liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for the glue to dry.
Paint the top of the outside and front edge of the embroidery hoop with black acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary.
Paint the bottom of the outside and front edge of the embroidery hoop with red acrylic craft paint. Set aside to dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary.
Thread black embroidery floss into the holes of a large yellow button. Secure in the back with a knot and trim the tails. Repeat with the second yellow button.
Slide a piece of scrap paper into the pocket so that the glue doesn’t seep through. Attach the yellow buttons to the top edge of the red felt pocket with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Glue Mickey’s ears to the top right and top left of the embroidery hoop, using the metal screw as your center point.
Flip the hoop over and secure the ears to the back of the embroidery hoop with a glue gun and glue sticks. If giving as a gift you can certainly finish the back with a circle of red or black craft felt.
Layering the red felt over top of the black felt creates a small pocket that can be filled with all your Disney keepsakes. Quick and easy to make for family, friends, or even the kids’ teachers. Your family and friends will never know how quick and easy this trendy Mickey Hoop was to create!
