  • tulle skirt – I had every intention of making one, but I happened to be in Goodwill and saw this red one for $4!!  Score!  Saved me time and money!
  • Minnie Mouse ears – again you can make these.  My daughter already had these from a Disneyland trip.  You can also buy one of these similar ones on Amazon

  • white iron-on vinyl
  • Teflon sheet or wax paper and iron
  • Cricut or other cutting machine (optional)
  • black t-shirt

DIY Minnie Mouse Costume

You can easily make a tulle skirt.  There are a lot of great tutorials on how to make a no-sew tulle skirt online.  Like I mentioned above, I happened to score this one at Goodwill for cheap.

To add the polka dots, I cut out a bunch of circles with my Cricut on heat transfer vinyl / iron-on.  In Cricut Design Space, I added the shape circle, you can size it 1-2 inches depending on what size of skirt you have, and cut out a bunch. 

If you don’t have a Cricut (even though I think everyone should have one, find out why here!), you can trace circles and cut them out with scissors or try a hole punch.

Alternatively, you can cut circles out of white felt and glue them on with fabric fusion or unique stitch.

I laid the white dots around the skirt sporadically, put a Teflon sheet over them and ironed them on (highest setting).

Then peel off the plastic backing.  That’s it for the skirt!
