How To Make It:

  1. Begin with a small piece of wool. Roll the wool between your hands to create a ball. Continue to add layers of wool until the fluffy ball is about twice the size you want it to be.
  2. Prepare a bowl of hot, soapy water. Dip each ball into the water and gently roll it from hand to hand without squeezing. Continue this process for about 10 minutes. Soon the ball will begin to harden. Stop once the ball has formed into the desired size.Rinse with cool water, and let dry.
  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until you have quite a few wool felt balls in many different colors. 
  4. Place balls into a Mickey shape. Apply a good amount of hot glue to one side of the Mickey shape to connect the felt balls and finish the coaster.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
