Miscellaneous Monday...DIY Disney Decorated Gems


I'm back after an unexpected break!  I got an emergency call on Friday that I needed to take my mom to a specialist for an eye problem, which pretty much killed most of the day and by the time I got home, I was done.  Saturday and Sunday had to be spent cleaning up and putting away all the outside "toys" to prepare for Fall and Winter.  That project is almost done...and just in time too since we've already been seeing some frost on the ground here.  Brrr.  At least we didn't get any snow yet like the forecaster said some areas could.

Anyway, on to today's post.  I've got a different craft project for today's Miscellaneous Monday.  All you need are some of those decorative glass gems, Scribbles paints in assorted colors, optional stencils, and some ideas.
I used a border punch I have that punches Mickey's head, the letter "M" and Mickey's glove (as well as a couple of stars) for the glove, head, and M (in the second row).  I tried to punch it out on tape and use as a stencil but it didn't quite work out so I stared at and then freehanded on the gem itself.
Mickey's shorts are free-handed on, just using a picture as a pattern.
I found a picture of Mickey in the Pook-a-Looz/Cutie style
And of course, a bunch of mini Mickey heads (3 dots each).

For the Minnie grouping, I freehanded on a big pink bow with white polka-dots (first gem, top row) and I attempted Minnie's pink skirt (last gem, top row).  I did Minnie's head with an offset pink bow and did a more vintage-inspired with her red bow in the middle on another marble.  I also did a cartoon-y daisy that some of my older collectible Minnies are wearing.  The purse is inspired by a toy - I even tried to layer on so it has more of a 3-d effect for the purse flap.

Lastly, I have Mickey's head with a heart and I tried to do Goofy's hat (looked at a picture online).

I'm not sure what exactly these can be used for, but I was inspired to make them.  They do look cute mixed in with little collectible figurines, but they kind of disappear on dark shelves.

Do you ever make anything you have no idea what you're going to do with?
