DIY Disney Shirts

So this post is coming to you thanks to the most adorable family we saw at Disneyland the other day.  Normally when we see large groups of people wearing matching shirts at the park, there is some eye-rolling and, from Mr. B, a look of don't-even-think-about-trying-to-get-me-to-wear-one-of-those-ever.  But when we saw this group in line for Toy Story, I almost squealed out loud (luckily I controlled myself) from the cuteness.  I was already in blogger mode taking pics for another Disney post I'm working on so I told myself to just bite the bullet and ask to take their pic.  Yeah, I totally chickened out, but Mr. B is never the shy one and he had no problem asking if I could take their picture for my blog.  And they were so cute and sweet and willing and didn't make me feel like a creepy stalker at all!  So here is the said adorable family and their super cute DIY shirts for their son's first birthday:

(Could their little one be any more precious?)

Really, did you not just go "Awwwwww"?  And BTW, taking a group to Disneyland for a 1st birthday is a brilliant idea since everyone can have fun, not just the baby!  Now I totally want to make my own Disney shirt, but obviously don't have a first birthday coming up, so I gathered some other DIY Disney images for inspiration.  (Click pic for original source, all pics via Pinterest.)

Which one do you think I'm leaning toward?  I'm kind of bummed I didn't see the birthday shirts before my birthday a couple of weeks ago, although they definitely wouldn't be as cute with 30 on them!  Thanks to Owen's family for being willing to share with me and for providing me with craft inspiration!


  1. These are adorable-but yes, I highly doubt the man would give the go-ahead for wearing coordinated shirts....

    1. Right? Mr. B actually said he would wear ones like the family had on! Maybe the black is they key...

  2. Well that family is too cute. Kudos to Mr B for asking for the pic! Shirts are great and fun birthday idea.

    Those are some really darling ideas for DIY many clever people.

  3. Aw yay! We made it! Thanks so much for featuring our shirts! Two is a manageable number.. 15- not so much!

    I've started a blog to document the craftiness, so feel free to check it out! I have his birthday party decorations up right now and our Disney trip is soon to come!
