Pocahontas Mickey Ears Ornament Crafts
What You Will Need:
- Cardstock or Construction Paper (cardstock would be better because it is a heavier material). For Pocahontas, you need the following colors: black, gray, brown, light brown (flesh tone for Pocahontas), tan, light tan, and teal.
- For John Smith, you will need the following cardstock or construction paper colors: yellow, peach (flesh tone), dark blue, gray, light blue, and brown.
- Glue stick (like kids use in school)
- White school glue (like Elmer’s glue)
- Optional: paper plate or small tray, paintbrush
- Optional: Black marker or sharpie (for tracing)
- Scissors with sharp edges (so, adult scissors, not kid scissors)
- Glitter in the following colors: blue, teal, and brown
- String or Ribbon; preferably a basic color like black or white.

How to Make the Pocahontas Ornament craft set
- Download and print out the Pocahontas Mickey Head ornament template. Before you print, check out the instructions on the PDF download. If you choose, you can print each page of the template out on the corresponding color for each of the different parts of Pocahontas’ dress.
Alternative: You could also print out the PDF template on white paper. Then cut all the pieces out, trace them on the color paper needed, and then cut them out again. This method does involve more steps (and twice as much cutting), but if you can’t figure out how to print the template one page at a time on colored cardstock, this might be an easier option for you. (to be fair, that’s the option I choose. ha!)
Once you have cut out all the pieces set them aside.
Now let’s start assembling the Pocahontas ornament!
First, take the two smaller black circles and glue them to the back of the larger light brown circle. These are the Mickey Ears. You might want to use the Elmer’s glue (as opposed to the glue stick) for this step… just to ensure the ears stay stuck.
After the Mickey ears have been glued to the back of the ornament base, glue on the light brown skirt piece and the teal blue necklace piece. Finally, glue on the gray pendant, the light tan leather ruffle piece, and the brown belt piece. Use the picture above as a guide.
assembling the John Smith ornament!
Go ahead and print out the template for Flynn Rider if you haven’t already done it. Follow the instructions on the template to know which color of cardstock to print on. Cut out all the pieces and set them aside.
First, take the two smaller yellow circles and glue them to the back of the larger tan circle. These are the Mickey Ears. You might want to use the Elmer’s glue (as opposed to the glue stick) for this step… just to ensure the ears stay stuck.
Next glue on John Smith’s light blue shirt, followed by his dark blue pants and brown belt. Finally, glue John Smith’s gray hat to the top left of the ornament as shown above.
Time to Add Glitter!
Add glitter! So, there are two options with the glitter. You could glitter your pieces before you glue them together or you could glitter your pieces after the cardstock elements are already glued together. Either way, you will want the glitter to dry completely before you move onto the next step.
Pro tip: You don’t want to use too much glue or the glitter will be clumpy. You also don’t want to use too little glue or the glitter will not stick to the cardstock evenly. Definitely use Elmer’s glue (or glue like that). Best crafting practice: squirt glue onto a plate or tray and then use a small paintbrush to paint the area you want to add glitter to.
Then, sprinkle the glitter onto the area, shake off the excess, and let it dry.
For Pocahontas, add teal or light blue glitter to the necklace and brown glitter to the belt.
For John Smith, add blue glitter to his pants and brown glitter to his belt as well.
Finally, flip over the ornament and add a bit of white school glue to the back. Loop a piece of string or ribbon and glue in place.
Allow the glue to dry completely.
