Here is a super easy and simple shirt I made for my girls before our Disney trip. Mickey shirts made with buttons. First you need a mickey head shape. I cut mine with my Mickey font Cricut cartridge, but you could also print one off the Internet of free hand one. A t-shirt, tacky glue, buttons, and thread.
First I laid the mickey image on my t-shirt, then traced around it with the glue. I pulled up the image and all that was left was the glue outline, (sorry I didn't take pictures of this part). I laid the buttons in the glue in the pattern I wanted and let them dry that way. Then I went back when it was dry and sewed all the buttons on with a needle and thread so they'd be permanent.
My button stash is out of control, so it's always good to find a project to use some up!
I also made some quick and easy matching hair clips. Take an alligator clip lined in white ribbon and hot glue on some matching buttons - so cute!
My girls got tons of comments on their shirts while at Disney, so fun and unique!!
