If you are getting ready for your Disney Cruise, you should definitely think about joining a Disney Fish Extender Exchange group. While there are plenty of great fish extenders gifts you can buy, you can also make your own gifts. All staterooms on the Disney Cruise Line ships are magnetic. You will find that many seasoned cruisers will have their doors covered with Disney themed magnets. This is what inspired me to create my own Disney Cruise Line Mickey Mouse Anchor Magnet.
What you Need to Make a Mickey Mouse Anchor Magnet
- Wooden anchors
- Red, Black, White & Yellow Acrylic paints
- Paint Tray
- Sticker-backed magnetic tape
Making this magnet is simple enough. Just paint it in the pattern that is shown. Allow enough time for it to dry and adhere the magnet to the back. If you are doing multiples (to give as fish extender gifts) then I would suggest painting all anchors with one color at a time.
I often get asked how to do the little white button dots. Easiest way is to dip the end of your brush (or a pencil eraser) into the white paint and lightly touch the surface.
