Another holiday is just around the corner – as America prepares to celebrate its independence, people everywhere are rejoicing in the feeling of summer as they prepare to have picnics, host BBQ’s, and watch some fireworks. Walt Disney World doesn’t forget about the holiday either – with special treats and a fireworks show, but if you’re like me and won’t be able to swing a WDW vacation this summer, then why not just bring the Disney magic home with these 4th of July Disney DIY ideas:


Feeling MAD about 4th of July? Then why not whip up some of the Mad Hatter’s 4th of July Teacakes?

You’ll need:

Mad Hatter’s Fourth of July Teacakes Template

Batch of cupcakes baked in blue paper cupcake liners (red or silver papers work well too)

Small red candies (such as M&M’s Minis)


Scrapbook paper (red, white, and blue)

Glue dots

Sticker numbers (optional)



1. Cut off the tops of the cupcakes level with the upper edge of the paper cupcake liners so that they better resemble the flat top of the Mad Hatter’s hat.

2. Frost the trimmed cupcakes and press red candies in place to create stripes.

3. Print the template and use it as a pattern for cutting out a set of brim and hatband pieces for each cupcake from the specified colors of paper. Glue the top brim circle atop the bottom brim circle and then curl the outer edge of the paper slightly with your fingers to give the brim a little more dimension.

4. Now shape the red hatband piece into a ring and secure it with a glue dot. Ideally, the ring should be just wide enough for the bottom of the cupcake to fit into without actually allowing it to rest on the tabletop. This will create the illusion that the hat is taller than it actually is.

5. When you know the ring is the right size, remove it from the cupcake and stick it to the brim using a couple of glue dots.

6. Set the cupcake in place.

7. For the finishing touch, use number stickers or a marker and a small square of white paper to make a 7/4 date tag — tuck the bottom of the tag behind the hatband.


Maybe you’re planning to host this year? Then this Mickey and Friends 4th of July party invite would be perfect!


Even after your party is over – you can capture your favorite memory with this adorable picture frame – it’s easy to make too!

1.Print the frame and decorations on regular paper or cardstock. Cut out the pieces.
2.Decorate the frame using the decorations included on page
