If you’ve ever visited a Disney park, you’ve probably seen at least one family with matching shirts boasting their family reunion or someone’s birthday. They’re a cute way to document a trip to the Magic Kingdom and are surprisingly easy to do! We’ve rounded up some fun DIY Disney shirts that you can make at home and will get you feeling the magic in no time.
1. Mickey & Minnie Ears
Nothing says Disney like Mickey and Minnie! If you want to keep it simple, yet iconic, this easy design is for you. Cut using a Cricut machine and the Disney & Friends cartridge and Mickey Font cartridge, this shirt is made with heat transfer vinyl in both matte and glitter (because ladies like it fancy). You can personalize it even further by adding the initials of your family members for a truly unique design.

2. Freezer Paper Ariel Shirts
Freezer paper is a super affordable way to make custom shirts, especially if you don’t have a cutting machine like a Silhouette or a Cameo. Simply find a design you like, trace onto freezer paper (which can be found near all the ziplocks and wax paper in any grocery store), then cut out your design. Iron onto a shirt, paint using fabric paint, then remove! It’s not only a simple way to make a shirt, but a super fun craft too.

3. Tie Dye Mickey Shirts
These shirts are not for the craft challenged! While the look is clearly righteous, these shirts take a little bit of everything- sewing, rubber banding, dying and a whole lotta patience.

4. DIY Disney Polka Dot T-Shirt
Whether you have a favorite character or just love the Sleeping Beauty Castle like in the photo above, this polka dot method is super easy. Just find a design you love and cut out onto contact paper. Affix to your shirt, then use fabric markers to create dots all along the edges. When you remove the contact paper, you’ll have a pretty amazing negative design!

5. DIY Bleached Mickey Mouse Shirt
A little bleach is all you need to get this one of a kind look. Grab a cheap shirt, a cut out of Mickey (or any character you want) on transfer paper and a spray bottle of water and bleach. Lightly mist to get the effect you want and voila! Such a cute and cheap idea.
