Its a small world

Add a touch of magic to your garden with this “It’s a Small World” inspired DIY!

Did you know that “It’s a Small World” opened on May 28th, 1966 at Disneyland Park? That’s why in honor of it’s anniversary, Disney shared a very cute and colorful DIY! It will make you feel as if you were on the happiest cruise that ever sailed!

Plus is super easy! Here’s the list of the things you need and a few simple steps you need to follow to create them. Take a look:


  • 4-5 inch wooden cutouts in circles or hearts
  • 12 inch wooden dowels for the flower stems
  • Basswood sheets, thin enough to be cut with scissors
  • Acrylic paint in solid and/or glitter colors
  • Paintbrushes
  • Scissors
  • Hole punch
  • Letter stickers or paint markers
  • Hot glue

Step 1: First we will start painting the cutout circles and hearts as well as the wooden dowels with a base coat of acrylic paint. You can paint them in colors that match the signs from “It’s a Small World” or get creative and improvise!
