These DIY Disney Felt Potato Heads are a fun twist on the classic Potato Head toy.
We got to have a little 2-day vacation to Disneyland with my in-laws this week and I thought these would be fun to bring along for the kids on the drive down. It’s only an hour but that doesn’t mean they can’t have something to do in the meantime.
It should be a fun few days with my in-laws and I love Disneyland during the holidays. It always gets me excited and in the mood to have fun at the Happiest Place on Earth.
The non Disney specific pieces are from the original Mr and Mrs Felt Potato Head Set.

I used embroidery floss and very basic hand sewing to do the detailing but I think it made a big difference. It’s hard to see in the picture but it made the pieces really special.
I hope you enjoy making your own pieces. If you have any questions please feel free to ask and I will answer the best that I can. If you have any ideas for future pieces let me know. I have really enjoyed making these and love how many variations there can be.

Anybody else remember that movie Meet The Robinsons? This potato head with his bowler hat, mustache, and bowtie reminds me of the mysterious Bowler Hat Guy.
This Mad Hatter potato head has bright blue eyes, blue shoes, and that iconic blue hat with card in the band.

I make quiet book pages for some of the younger Grandchildren and there is one that is almost 4 and he is crazy about Disney, like his Mommy is, so I am going to make these Disney Characters for his 4 birthday quiet book page. I know he is going to love it. Thank you so much for making all these Disney Characters and he loves his potato head guy too, so this is perfect! I like them all and am having a really hard time picking one, so I will be making all of them for him.
I think I will be making some for my soon to be 2 year old Granddaughter too!
Thanks so much, Joan
Joan, thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I am so glad to hear that there are other people out there who are just as crazy for Disney as my family! I agree that it is so hard to pick just one favorite from all of them. I wish you good luck on making them and let me know if you run into any difficulties or have any questions!
Omgsh! How cute! I just love the Peter Pan Potato Head! Hahaha adorable! Anywho, thanks for sharing with me and my lovely Pin Worthy Wednesday cohosts! I’m pinning your post!
I think my favourite has to be the mad hatter. Totally adorable!
Thank for sharing at Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planning 🙂
Mine are the Mad Hatter and the Pirate. They were so fun to design and create.
These are adorable! I am adding them to my long list of projects to make for my daughter 🙂
I totally feel ya Alicia. Of course my list has grown exponentially since I starting checking out your site!
Omgosh this is so stinkin’ cute! I love this idea. Thanks for sharing you pattern on Merry Monday Linky Party.
Wow, so creative! Living in California people assume I go to Disneyland all the time, when in fact I’ve been only twice (when I was 8, and then we took the kids before #3 came along). Thank you for sharing and linking up to Farmer’s Market Friday!
That is really funny. I think we all do that in some way. “Oh you’re from (fill in the blank) so you’ve been to (insert icon here)”.
I love these! If only I could sew…if you sell them let me know! 🙂
Kristen if I ever decide to sell them I will make sure you are the first to know but these are an easy first project for learning to sew. It’s small and just basic hand sewing. I promos it is totally do able.
These are adorable and would be perfect for my nieces!

Oh I’m sure they would love them. They are like portable dolls. My daughter loves to make goofy voices for them. You remind me that I have a pair of nephews who I should make a set for.
These are soooooooo cute!!
My nephews would loooooove them. We might try to make them together 🙂
Winnie that is a great idea. I bet they would cherish the potato heads just a little bit more because they made them with you. Have fun!
These are so cute my niece will love them – I adore your designs thank you for sharing 🙂
Absolutely Amberjane! Hope your nieces love them.
What a great idea! You are so creative! I wish more of the ideas in my head ever materialized! 😉
Georgia, I am totally with you. This idea had been floating around for years, seriously. So I finally got around to it, and hunkered down to finish them so I didn’t have yet another unfinished project lying around.
These are really cute! I remember playing with felt characters in church when I was little! Very creative!
Me too Anna! That was what gave me the idea. I loved them and had so much fun and they are so perfect for traveling!
Adorable and quire creative!!! Two thumbs up!!
Thanks. Sometimes inspiration strikes and I give myself a little pat on the back.
So cute! I might put a cardboard backing to them and hot glue Christmas yarn to make into Christmas tree ornaments. I’ll make a slightly smaller version. My Christmas tree theme is vintage toys. They are mostly homemade ornaments. This will go perfect. Thank you for the idea!
That is an awesome tree theme! I saw some felt ornaments that paid homage to Charlie Brown that I loved that could be really cute too. I love your idea. When you make them send me a picture I would love to see how they turn out.
Oh my word, those are adorable! I think the pirate is my favorite, but it’s hard to choose.
I think the pirate is my favorite too. That was the one that i had the most fun designing.
