Smile Christmas craft ideas Disney themed

Hi
I'm not very artsy crafty
but I figured I came to the right place--HUGS
I am wondering if there is some type of "Disney themed Christmas decorations" I could make ?.We will be taking a small Christmas tree (2-3 feet)with us in Dec and I have a table skirt and tree skirt --some Mickey and Minnie lights but no decorations.
Any thoughts and ideas are greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Hugs Mel

How about taking three pompoms (2 small, 1 large) and hot glue them into the traditional Mickey head shape?

I ran over to the store and they have some really cool pom poms --threads of gold and silver running through the poms.

I have some old bells that I'm not sure what I'm saving them for so that is another option,,I work at a school so I've accumalated alot of "special junk".
Well I'm off to Michaels tomorrow to plan.
Thanks

I saw this book you can buy online...or maybe you can find it at your library or something

Disney's Christmas Crafts for kids ...by Marge Kennedy...

I'm gonna keep googling it cause I'd like to make some decorations/crafts for our room as well since we'll be there from 12/23/08-1/1/09

I took the Disney tie ons and cut the strings and hot glued them on, also the Disney key chains ( remove the clip ) antenna toppers, mini bows. (by the way I hot glued everything on the tree ) beaded garland

Here a couple pic (not great ones) from a tree I made from Dec 06





From 07 ( this tree I got from QVC battery powered)

How COOL! I'm going to have to make some now! (Would be a cute pendant for a Christmas necklace--if can find smaller bells, we could do earrings too!

Can't wait to see the pom pom Mickeys!
