fTo make my house a little more Disney this year, I made this fun farmhouse Mickey centerpiece to pop on my mantle with my other farmhouse decor!
Farmhouse Mickey Centerpiece
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are already getting the house decorated for the holidays. And, making a farmhouse Mickey centerpiece was near the top of my list on my list of things to do this year. I just couldn’t wait any longer and so, I made this quick Cricut craft to have my fun Mickey and farmhouse too!
It turned out to be so simple that I could have made the whole floral element in the time it took to cut the two Cricut pieces, and that was fast too. So, if you want a quick holiday craft featuring your favorite mouse, let’s get started.

Tips to Make This Farmhouse Mickey Swag
- Grab the free Mickey silhouette cut file here. That’s the most fun part of this whole farmhouse swag. And it’s very much worth taking the few extra minutes to make!
- If you’ve never used floral tape before, you have to get some here. I had never tried it, but it turns out to be SO AWESOME for wrapping the two pine branches together in a way that would have been so bulky with floral wire.
- You do not have to use the same buffalo check poinsettia flower like I did. It’s certainly pretty, but I just found it in my craft room, leftover from last year. If you have another accent piece that would work in your craft room, grab it and try it!
How Do I Make this Farmhouse Mickey Centerpiece?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- Buffalo Check Heat Transfer Vinyl
- 1 12x12 Sheet Chipboard
- Floral Wire
- Buffalo Check Poinsettia or other Faux Flower Element
- Two Large Faux Pine Boughs
- Mickey Silhouette Cut File
- Floral Tape
- Cricut EasyPress or Easy Press Mini
- Cricut Maker
- Deep Cut Blade
- Masking Tape
- Strong Grip Mat
- Light Grip Mat
- 1 Sheet Parchment Paper
- Wire Cutters
- Hot Glue Gun & Glue
- Download the cut file and upload to Cricut Design Space and cut the Mickey silhouette shape from the heat transfer vinyl AND another from the chipboard. Use the strong grip mat when cutting the chipboard, taping the corners down to keep the chipboard from shifting.
- Weed the vinyl from Mickey silhouette. Place the vinyl design on the chipboard and, using the Easy Press Mini, attach the vinyl to the chipboard.
- Position the two faux pine boughs overlapping end-to-end, securing them together with the floral tape.
- Place the floral element between the join of the pine boughs and, using the wire end of the floral element, secure it in place.
- Lie the Mickey silhouette face-down and hot glue two 6-inch long pieces of floral wire to the back of the silhouette in an "x" shape, located about 1 inch from the bottom of the silhouette.
- Slide the Mickey silhouette between the floral element and the pine boughs, then use the floral wires attached to the silhouette to wrap snugly around the pine boughs to secure it in place. Add hot glue to help hold it all up together, if desired,.
- Place your farmhouse Mickey swag on the mantel hang on the door!
