DIY Disney Costume

Little ones often have their favorite Disney characters and having the opportunity to dress up as those favorite Disney characters can be the cherry on top of their perfect day of DIY Disney crafts and fun.

Some of the best DIY Disney costumes you can find are Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head, Rapunzel, Peter Pan’s Escaped Shadow, Sully, Mike, and Boo, Olaf, and Tweedledee and Tweedledum.

The best part is there are costume ideas for both adults and kids so everyone in the family can join in on the fun with DIY Disney costumes.

DIY Dumbo Face Masks

For smaller kids who may not have as much patience as the older kids, there are also some easy to accomplish Disney crafts they will love.

DIY Dumbo face masks can be made with just a few basic craft supplies – paper plates, some paint or markers and crayons, and a little bit of glue.
