With the WDW Radio Alaska Cruise setting sail soon, I thought I’d show you how to make some decorations for your door. Decorating your stateroom door is a very popular thing to do, and I love it because you get to show your Disney Side!
Disney Cruise Line is more than happy to let you decorate your door, but, there is one rule. Any kind of tape or adhesive can ruin the doors. Since the doors are magnetic, magnets are the only thing you can put on there. So the first thing I’m making is:
In this craft, you’ll be making a magnet of yourself Disney Bounding as your favorite character!
What You’ll Need:
-Foam people kit
-Pens and pencils
-Colored scrapbook paper (optional)
-Any other embellishments you want (stickers, glitter, etc.)
1. First take your foam people. They come in a kit with clothes and hair you can stick on. Pick the character you want to Disney Bound as. Then place the clothes and hair on (they are self adhesive). If the kit you have doesn’t have clothes or hair in the color you want, trace some onto colored scrapbook paper and glue them on.
2. Once that’s done, draw in a nose and smile.
3. Next, take your magnetic tape and cut it at least an inch long. Peel the back off and stick to your foam person’s head.
4. Add any other emelishments like stickers, gems, flowers or Mickey ears to your magnet. Even put your initials on it’s shirt.
Now there you have it- your own magnet!
In this craft we’ll be painting and embellishing a cardboard anchor.
What You’ll Need
-Paint (Dark blue or navy)
-Magnetic adhesive strips
-Number and letter stickers
-Any other embellishments you’d like
1. Start by painting your anchor. I used a dark blue color but you can use any color you want. Just keep adding one layer at a time. How many layers you’ll need will depend on what kind of paint you have.
2. Once it’s all dry, take out your letter and number stickers and write something on your anchor. I put “2015” on mine but you can do whatever you want.
3. When that’ done, start to place on your embellishments. I used gems.
4. Finally, take out the magnetic adhesive strips and place it to the back of your anchor
Now you’ve completed your anchor!
I hope today’s post was fun and useful or inspired you to make your own craft! Preparing for your trip can be just as fun as actually doing it and that’s why I love crafting. Click here to see how I made my own travel journal, maybe you could modify some of the details to fit a Disney Cruise Line vacation! Now before I go, I’d like to ask some questions:
