Mickey Mouse Christmas Tree Ideas

These fun tree ideas are the next best thing to being at Walt Disney World!

Mickey Statement Tree

I think this idea is such a cute one–especially with a white Christmas tree!

The great thing about this Mickey Mouse Christmas tree is that it doesn’t require a lot of expensive specialty ornaments–just some red and black ornaments.

Depending on how full you want the tree, you may want 2 or 3 sets of ornaments.

Add in the Mickey gloves, slippers, and face, plus a hat for a tree topper, and you’re all set! Want to make your own? Here’s what you’ll need to make it happen.

Mickey Plush Tree for Christmas

Kids will be especially fond of this Mickey Mouse Christmas tree, which uses plush characters in addition to traditional ornaments.

This could be a great way to use the non-Disney Christmas ornaments you already have, but then enhance them with some plush figures. Add in some candy canes for more festive color!

You could choose Christmas-themed plush for a more festive feel, or go with regular plush Mickeys, which could be used any time of year, for versatility.

This tree did include some of Mickey’s pals, such as Minnie, Donald Duck, and Pluto, which you could do as well. Or, you could stick with a strictly Mickey theme for your Christmas tree.

Plush characters can be a little pricey, but you really only need a few to make a statement.

You could also mix up some larger plushes with some smaller plushes for variety and to save money, since smaller ones are usually less expensive.

If you like to crochet, you can make the Mickey and Minnie on our list of Disney amigurumi patterns, then add them to your tree!

Classic Mickey Decorated Christmas Tree

I really like the simplicity of this Mickey Mouse Christmas tree, and they even included some Minnie ornaments as well.

You simply need some Mickey-shaped ornaments and some pretty ribbon to make this tree happen.

If you want to make your own tree topper like the one seen in this tree, we’re including some instructions below.

DIY Mickey Mouse Tree Topper

If you want to make your own simple and inexpensive Mickey Mouse Christmas tree topper, you’ll be surprised at how easy (and cheap!) it is!

You’ll need three Styrofoam balls–one larger 5-inch ball and two smaller 3-inch balls.

Core out part of the larger ball, if you want a hollow area for the top branch of your tree.

You can paint them black (or red, or whatever color you prefer!). You’ll need to use acrylic paint, because most spray paints and some other types of paint will melt your Styrofoam.

Simply paint them with a sponge brush (you’ll probably need to do multiple coats since the foam is porous), then use toothpicks or wooden skewers to attach them together.

Add a pet-sized Santa hat for the finishing touch!

You can follow a similar process with inexpensive plastic ornaments to make your own Mickey ornaments, too!

Maybe you aren’t feeling particularly crafty, or simply want a more elaborate option.

If you don’t want to make your own topper, these are some cute Mickey Christmas tree toppers that are tree-ready!

Maybe you want to chart your own course and come up with your own unique version of a Mickey Mouse Christmas tree.

The good news is, there are plenty of items you can use to get started! You can go all-in and use only Mickey ornaments, or mix them in with your existing ornaments.

I especially love the set of Mickey ornaments featuring his various iterations over the years–including the Sorcerer’s Apprentice and the black and white version from Steamboat Willie.
