Today I want to share a super easy way for you to add a touch of Disney to your holiday decor with this Mickey Mouse Christmas tree skirt! I love it when I can add a subtle hidden Mickey to projects, because then I know it is there, but it is not overly Disney.
You can purchase a plain Christmas tree skirt to decorate, or update your current skirt. Here is how mine originally looked. I actually made this YEARS ago. It is a red satin skirt that I made with a bright colorful snowflake patterned ruffle. For the Mickey Mouse heads I originally used fabric paint and a stamp, but now I am going to show you how I updated that a made the whole project even better.

Red Glitter Vinyl
In my mind, things are better when you add some sparkle, so that is exactly what I decided to do with this project. I cut about 75 Mickey Mouse icons out of Siser Sparkle iron on vinyl.
Next I placed these small Mickey Mouse icons on my Christmas tree skirt right over the top of the stamped images. I wanted to cover up the old images since the fabric paint did not create the crisp clean look I was originally going for. Normally I would use my heat press for applying iron on vinyl, but since these icons were so small I was able to press them with my home iron. I used the hottest heat setting and held the iron in place for 20 – 30 seconds making sure to apply a lot of pressure.
For me I love the way the little touches of glittering Mickey Mouse icons look on my Christmas tree skirt. This would be a great way to customize a plain skirt. You could have vinyl iron on images of various Disney characters going all the way around the skirt.
