DIY Disney Jingle Bell Family Pajamas
Last year I made DIY Believe Pajamas for our family and they loved them. This year with our Disney trip in May cancelled due to COVID, I wanted to bring a little of that magic into our home. I found these adorable Mickey Mouse Pajama pants at Target and was inspired to pull together a little fun for our family. I quickly grabbed some comfortable long sleeve shirts in red and then headed home to open up Cricut Design Space and begin creating.
I decided to design a jingle bell Mickey Mouse head and then add either a bow or a bowtie to give them a little flair. I thought jingle bells would be the perfect way to show a little holiday and a little Disney at the same time. If you would like this cut file, please click here.

Once the file was ready, I grabbed both my white heat transfer vinyl and my green HTV and set them to cut. There is really no need to mirror this design as it is symmetrical. I started up my Cricut Explore Air 2 and let it get to work. Once the HTV was cut, I weeded it quickly and then started up my Cricut Easy Press to begin putting the shirts together.
I didn’t have a ton of white HTV, but I made this work on a 12×12 sheet. The Mickey heads came out at a decent size, but you could always go larger if you would like. I kept ours all the same size because I wanted uniformity and a giant Mickey on one shirt and small on the other, seemed silly to me.
I first pressed the Mickey jingle bell heads onto each shirt. I have found that allowing the HTV to cool before peeling helps the adherence. After the jingle bells were done, I placed bows on my shirt and our daughters shirt and then bowties on my husband and sons shirts.
In total I spent about 30 minutes working on these shirts. Well worth it and the family will wear them all year, which is worth the time investment. I am actually thinking of making some for our postponed Disney trip as well. They are just so cute and I bet with a little glitter HTV they would really pop!
