Dressing for the Holidays at Walt Disney World

scarf 014My previous job at Walt Disney World often required me to work outside.  I can honestly tell you that there were times during the winter months that it got down right COLD!  One day while working at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park I saw snow flurries!  If you’re planning a trip to Walt Disney World for the upcoming holiday season be prepared.  Check the weather forecast often while you’re preparing and packing for your journey to the sunshine state.  Here’s a no-sew, super fast, easy AND inexpensive craft idea that will help you shout out your love for Disney, pack lightly and also be prepared for any wind gusts while shopping at Downtown Disney.  All you’ll need to do is take an inexpensive basic fleece scarf, add a touch of Disney magic and you’ve got the perfect accessory to pack for a sudden temperature drop. Here’s how!

Gather up the following items:  a solid color fleece scarf that is prewashed, a pair of fabric scissors, fabric glue, a piece of paper and pencil, and a small square of fleece fabric that is a different color than your scarf. I found a light pink baby scarf at the Dollar Store that I used to cut up.

Cut the image out of the fleece using your sewing scissors.

If you and your family are spending the holidays at Walt Disney World, have a wonderful time, don’t forget your scarf and tell Mickey I said “Hi!”
