Cozy Coupe to Minnie Mouse Coupe Tutorial

– Posted in: Crafts

We have had a cozy coupe in the family for quite a while.  In fact, this thing has to be at least 7 years old.  With all of the kids getting older, it was handed down to Addy for her new car.  Thanks to Pinterest, I started to see some awesome little cozy coupe re-do’s. A bat mobile, an oscar meyer weiner machine, and then this Minnie Mouse coupe re do just really caught  my eye!

LOVE IT!! What are the disks that you made the ears out of called? What are they made of and what are they close to in Michaels. I am thinking about doing this and would love to try what you used.

Hi Brenda! I made the ears out of little wooden round disks, and I am not sure what they are called. They are back in the unfinished wood section…but to be honest, the humidity has made those ears flop. I would try doing a larger piece of wood and then securing that directly to the top with a couple of screws. The sticky felt and small disks just couldn’t handle the humid heat here in Louisiana.

I wanted to what you used to attach the ears

I used gorilla glue, but if I had it to do all over again, I would use epoxy so I KNOW it won’t go anywhere next time.

How did you make the white circles on the car?

Jennifer June 9, 2014, 09:10

I used sticky vinyl and cut circles out with a vinyl cutting machine. You can probably find a circle pattern and just hand cut the circles from vinyl as well.

What size are the white circles on the coupe?

Jennifer June 30, 2014, 16:51

They are just about 4.5″ I believe.

Did you put polyurethane on the car after you finished painting it?

Jennifer July 30, 2014, 17:05

No I did not.

What were the measurement of the bow? were did you get it?

Jennifer October 11, 2014, 11:28

I actually made it from foam board. I just free hand cut it to have it look like a bow.

How many cans of spray paint did you use total?

Jennifer December 11, 2014, 15:01

I purchased two pink and two black and used every bit of the pink, but I did have black leftover.

Now that it has been awhile has the paint held up …..I painted one and already as I put the door on some paint chipped off …..would polyurethane help

Jennifer December 17, 2014, 14:12

I have had some paint chip off on my door as well. I am not sure, but polyurethane might help.
