    This is beautiful! I recently convinced my husband to change our tree theme to a Disney theme. Wuhoo! We went Ape_Crazy at the Disney Store and ended up spending a small fortune redecoradting the tree. I wish I would've seen this thread earlier :( We purchased a Mickey & Minnie tree topper (small M&M on a silver ball with a green base) which is nice, but ur styrofoam topper is much nicer! Keep up the wonderful job! ;)

    I made a wreath like this, pretty huge, strung it with clear lights and it hangs at the peak of our garage each Christmas. Love it!

    Hidden Mickey Ornaments
    I bought shatterproof ornament balls, filled with black sand, added store bought shells, and added an orange punch Mickey Mouse. I glued the top on, just to be sure none came loose during travel or cruise. I attached a bow to all. The tag on each was a shrinky dink. I took a DISign from the boards (Millipie), and personalized with our dates. I used the shrinky dinks designed for printing with your printer.

    Do you remember about how much sand you added to each ornament? Also where did you find the shrinky dinks?

    I think you can get Shrinky Dinks at a local crafts store. I think I bought mine at either Michael's or ACMoore. You can check Joann Fabric or Hobby Lobby.

    Thanks for the info. I tried my local Joann Fabric, but I didn't see any there - I might check online or try Hobby Lobby the next time I am there.

    I bought Shrinky Dinks at Michaels. I used a graphic from DISboards and printed onto Shrinky Finks from my computer. I bought the printable ones. It was truly simple. As for the amount of sand, I just eyeballed it and made sure it wasn't too heavy. I just made Christmas ones for our recent Dream Cruise. I used a 1"design and glued into a bottlecap and attached to the ornament. I will try to post a picture soon.

    I think I just might try some of these this year. What kind of glue did you use. Need something that will hold up in storage in the attic. How did you get the string on the Styrofoam?
