DIY Your Magic Bands

We are headed to Disney in a few weeks. As is now required by all hotel guests, we have received these magic bands, which replace your park pass, hotel key, and basically becomes your identifier for your whole trip!  They have some interesting things in the works for this new technology. 

In the meantime, I thought I would make our previously solid colored bands a little more "Disney friendly."

All you need is a little imagination and a paint pen or a sharpie. I have been using paint pens for the last few months on a few different projects and just love them!!!

The orange band is done with a black sharpie and the others with a white paint pen. I do not recommend the fine tip sharpie paint pens for this. They do not seem to work well. However, the Painters brand paint pens are perfect, especially for making tiny Mickeys!

Tomorrow I'll share another Disney project you can make using your paint pens!  I hope I've inspired you!!!


  1. That is too cute! I can't wait to decorate mine.

  2. I love these! What brand/name of paint pen did you use? Did the paint crack? And did you put any thing else (like clear nail polish) over or under the paint? thanks in advance! I can't wait to make my own!

  3. So cute! I love the Tigger stripes!
