How to make Mickey ornaments

Start adding your beads to the belly side of your mouse. For Mickey, I did all red with 2 white patches (for his buttons) near the middle. For Minnie, I went red white red white for her dots. Create fun Mickey and Minnie Christmas ornaments with beads and wire.

The best way to see how many beads you need is to use a large bottle cap. Wrap the wire to see how many beads will get you half way around your circle then finish with black beads on either side. Create fun Mickey and Minnie Christmas ornaments with beads and wire.

Wrap around your cap again and twist off. Then twist again at the top of your wire to create a loop for hanging. Pinch tightly with your pliers and cut off any extra you might not need. 

Now to make your ears. Start by creating a loop at the end of the black wire. Add black beads until the size looks good compared to the bigger circle. 

Take the end of the wire through your loop and pull tight. 

Leave a gap with the loop for attaching to your main circle. 

Use the extra wire to wrap around your main circle and ear. Pull nice and tight each time around until it feels secure, 3 or 4 times around. Clip off the extra wire and pinch tight.

Touch up the wire with a permanent marker if you need it. Then you’re done!Create fun Mickey and Minnie Christmas ornaments with beads and wire. They will twinkle on the Christmas tree and are fun ornaments that kids can create.
