Mickey Gingerbread Inspired Tree

This year our Christmas tree theme is Mickey gingerbread!  Are your teeth hurting yet from all the sweetness? I was inspired to recreate the Mickey gingerbread felt ornaments from an adorable plush I stumbled upon Instagram. When I found out that it was from Tokyo Disneyland (many Christmases ago) I thought this was the perfect opportunity for a DIY project! I also made Mickey cinnamon scented ornaments and snowflake salt dough "sugar cookie" ornaments with my daughter. It's an easy and fun holiday activity to do with your little. Happy Holiday decorating!
