DIY Disney Patches

I’m back! My hubby and I had a magical time at Disneyland last week, but now, I suppose, it’s time to get back to the real world…or not! Today I’m making the Disney magic last even longer, and sharing some of my favorite creations to date: these whimsical, DIY Disney patches.

2. Use hot glue to attach the pieces. (Hint: I’ve included a “cheat sheet” in the second page of the pfd download for your reference.)

I love everything about these! They are super affordable, super cute, and something totally unique.

I got the idea for these when I was thinking about my trip to Disneyland and the accessories I planned to bring. I have kind of a HUGE obsession with Disney hair bows (the ones from Hot Topic and some I make myself), but, the only problem with bows is that you can only wear one each day. I thought it would be fun to make some accessories for my backpack that I could show off multiple at a time. Voila! These cute patches were born.

Which one is your favorite? I can’t decide between Rapunzel and Hercules.

I had so much fun wearing these around at the park! People asked me where I got them, and it was fun to say, “I made them myself.” One woman insisted I sell them on Etsy, but you guys know I like sharing my printables with you too much.

If you like these cuties, you should definitely check out the Disney photo overlays I shared last week. You can never get enough Disney, am I right?

There you have it! I hope you enjoy these designs as much as I do. And whether you plan to show them off on your next trip to Disneyland or make them just for fun, they are sure to make your Disney-loving heart smile.

    Hi Mandee – I’m here from “Made by You Monday”

    These are ADORABLE! I’m a huge Disney fan (nerd) and I think these are awesome! There’s been a lot of Disney inspired designs lately all over Etsy and Instagram, but these are totally unique. I haven’t seen anything like this yet. I will def have to make some for my next trip! Thanks for sharing

    Thanks so much for sharing! I made most of these for my sisters and me for our upcoming Make-a-Wish trip for my middle sister. I actually loved them so much I got inspired to create some of my own designs. I must have made about 60 between the three of us haha.

      Have a great time on your trip!!

      Hi Vincenza,

      I just checked the link, and it seems to be working on my end. Feel free to check out the FAQ section on my site for more detailed instructions for troubleshooting.

    I am having a dickens of a time trying to find a Boo (from Monsters Inc) one of these shaped designs. She is just too hard to configure. If you ever do, please let me know. Thank you.

    I wish I could attach a picture… We made these for my daughter’s birthday, but my sister and I did our own take on them, and we added a few other characters to our set. Thanks for the inspiration! (I didn’t see the villain set until we finished, but we did Captain Hook, and he’s one of my favorites! 😉
