These Disney Glitter Christmas Ornaments are a super quick and easy holiday decoration and gift idea! Customize each ornament with silhouettes of your favorite Disney characters – Mickey Mouse, Tinkerbell, Alice in Wonderland, and more!
My family is headed to Disneyland later this year, and we are counting down the days until our vacation! Since we’re visiting the park around Christmas time, I decided to make a few holiday souvenirs ahead of time so that I don’t end up spending all of my souvenir money in the Disney ornament store! These easy Disney glitter Christmas ornaments are a twist on the personalized glitter ornaments that are a reader favorite here at Happiness is Homemade.
(Psst…my friends are just as Disney crazy as I am, so be sure to scroll all the way down to the bottom of this post for 25 more amazing Disney crafts + your chance to win an epic Southern California Disney vacation!)
What You’ll Need to Make Disney Glitter Christmas Ornaments:
- 3″ Glass Disc Ornaments (also available in 2.6″ size)
- Pledge Floor Care
- Glitter in Assorted Colors and Varieties (tinsel glitter is especially pretty!)
- Assorted Ribbon
- Adhesive Vinyl and Electronic Cutting Machine*
* Note: if you don’t have a vinyl cutting machine, there are LOTS of sellers on Etsy who will cut custom vinyl for you – click here to check it out!! If you’re looking for vinyl Disney princess silhouettes, this seller currently has them at great prices!
I started by making glitter ornaments in colors that complement each of my Disney characters – Tinkerbell, Alice in Wonderland, Mickey Mouse and Pirate Mickey to represent Pirates of the Caribbean (my favorite ride at Disneyland!). (Note: click here for my step-by-step Glitter Ornament Tutorial)
I used my Silhouette CAMEO and white adhesive vinyl from Expressions Vinyl (my most favorite place to buy all of my vinyl supplies!) to cut out silhouettes of my Disney characters. I decided to add Cinderella’s castle with Mickey on the back of each ornament along with the date to commemorate our vacation.
I cut out each of the individual silhouettes and covered them with a small piece of clear transfer paper. Next, I rubbed the edge of an old gift card over the top of the transfer paper, flipped it over, and peeled off the backing paper.
To transfer the adhesive vinyl decal to the glass ornament, gently place the vinyl and transfer paper onto the ornament. Starting at the middle of the vinyl design and working your way out, use your fingertips and light-but- firm pressure to burnish the shape and adhere the vinyl to the ornament. Carefully peel the transfer paper off of the top and set aside for reuse.
Adding the date along with the castle to the back of the ornament was a great idea, and I couldn’t be happier with the way they turned out!
I added a pink vinyl heart with a touch of glitter and a purple bow to finish off this adorable Tinkerbell ornament. That pretty iridescent green tinsel glitter was the perfect choice for a Tinkerbell ornament, don’t you think?
The camera had a hard time capturing the sparkle of the black glitter, but I promise you that it’s just as sparkly as the other colors! It looks awesome on this Pirate Mickey ornament!
I couldn’t make Disney ornaments without including a classic Mickey silhouette!
Alice in Wonderland is one of my Disney favorites, so I made sure to include Alice in my Disney glitter Christmas ornament collection. Making these ornaments is so addictive because it’s quick, easy, and the end result is gorgeous! I seriously want to make ALL of the Disney silhouettes now! Who would you make next?

I absolutely love these Disney silhouette ornaments. I can’t wait to make them with my son. We are huge Disney fans, and these will look great on our tree!

Love your homemade
Hey! I would also like to know where you got the silhouettesame. Thanks!
I did a Google search for “Disney Silhouettes” and then used that image along with the trace function on my Silhouette CAMEO to create the cut file.
These are great ! I have a new silhouette that I have not used yet and a Grandson that is engaged to be married next fall. The couple plans to use as much Disney decor as possible in the wedding plans. I can’t wait to show this to them–I think these would maybe make great table markers and take-aways. I am sure they will find some way to use them -Thanks so much for sharing!!!
That sounds like such a fun idea, Cindy! Congratulations on their engagement!
Hi! Will this work on plastic ornaments? I will be shipping these and worry about them breaking. Thank you! Love this craft- can’t wait to make them!
The vinyl will stick just as well to plastic ornaments; however, I have heard mixed reviews about my readers attempting to create glitter ornaments with plastic. Most were successful, but a few ran into trouble (the odds are heavily in favor of the success stories though!). I think it’s definitely worth giving it a try, and if you do, please come back and let me know how it worked out! 🙂
Very cute! Where did you get the different silhouettes from? Love the pirate Mickey!
