When you can’t go to Disney, you can always bring the magic home with these Disney crafts. They’re great for entertaining the kids on a rainy day, when they’re bored or when they just need a little pixie dust sprinkled around.
Want your kids to get creative? Break out the paper, glue sticks and glitter and watch them go. It’s a great way to get them off of the screens on a rainy afternoon at home, when someone has the sniffles or when a serious case of boredom breaks out among your crew.
Make the crafts more magical by sprinkling a little pixie dust in the form of Disney-inspired crafting fun. My kids always love Disney themed crafts. Here is a roundup of some of their favorites, many of which also work as Disney character-themed birthday party ideas. At the end, we added a few Disney craft ideas for Disney-loving adults, too!

DIY Disney Crafts for Little Ones
Baby Yoda Paper Craft
Baby Yoda is the hottest thing in my house right now. Star Wars fans know Baby Yoda from The Mandlorian on Disney+ . This paper craft is easy enough even for the craft-challenged. All it takes is green, brown, white and pink colored paper, scissors, glue and a black marker. Print out the free template and make a houseful. I’ve always been a fan of paper crafts because they’re typically less expensive and messy than other craft projects. The world needs more Baby Yoda!
Inspired by the Disney Pixar movie Toy Story 4, this is another super easy Disney craft. My Disney family thinks watching the movie and making a Forky is the perfect way to spend a Disney-at-home evening together. This Forky craft project starts with a spork, of course. The other craft supplies needed are Popsicle sticks, googly eyes, modeling clay, pipe cleaners, glue, scissors, and a marker. Forky is anything but trash and we’re going to prove it by continuing to make our own little Forkys at home!
Toilet Paper Roll Olaf
Another easy craft for the littles, they will want to make an army of Olafs! Entertain the kids at home or use it as the craft for a Frozen-themed birthday party. Making Olaf is easy and all it requires is a toilet paper cardboard tube, some craft paper and a glue stick.
Customize Your Disney Bands
When it comes to a Walt Disney World vacation, one size does not fit all. The same holds true for Disney MagicBands. There are many online shops to choose from, whether Etsy-based or standalone, that offer decals or “skins” to decorate your bands. If your kids are older and a little more crafty, there are DIY instructions for painting and jazzing up MagicBands at a minimal cost. We have an entire article on Ideas for Making Your Disney MagicBands Uniquely Yours. Start there if you’re in need of help as you take on this fun project. It’s one of the best ways to rev up excitement about an upcoming Disney vacation.
DIY Disney Crafts for Big Kids
DIY Mickey Mouse Ears
If you have girls, chances are you have headbands at home! That’s the first step to making these DIY Mickey ears and Minnie ears. The craft instructions call for black paper plates. But if you have white ones at home, let the kids paint them black. Or color them with a marker. Then simply cut and glue the paper plate “ears” to the headband. If you have red and white polka dot ribbon, glue on a Minnie Mouse bow. This is a great, cheap way to make Mickey Mouse ears for a Halloween costume.
Beauty and the Beast Paper Plate Craft
I’m obsessed with the Beauty and the Beast Disney movie. I’m also obsessed with this easy but oh-so-pretty Beauty and the Beast Paper Plate craft. All it takes is a paper plate, bright yellow paint, some pearl stickers, pom poms and other decorations to turn that paper plate into a beautiful Belle ball gown. It’s awesome for a Belle-themed birthday party or just great fun if you’re crafting in the rain on a dreary day.
Snow White Cardboard Mirror
Do you have a little princess at home who all things glittery? Then this Snow White DIY mirror is the craft for your house. It uses cardboard, aluminum foil, and shiny objects to make a mirror they can use to ask “who is the fairest of them all?”
DIY Disney Crafts for 14+
Disney Princess Bookmarks
These cute corner bookmarks require some level of crafting skill. She’s got videos showing how to make corner bookmarks honoring Cinderella, Belle, Rapunzel, Snow White, Jasmin, Moana, and, of course, Elsa. They’re beyond me, but if you or your kids are more artistic, these would make fun DIY gifts for Disney lovers. And they’re sure to encourage kids to read books!
Winnie the Pooh Button Art
Looking for a sweet baby shower present for a mom planning a Pooh-theme nursery? This Disney craft uses a picture frame and an assortment of yellow and pink buttons to create Pooh.
