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 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.

    I cannot wait to make this for my little girl! Thank you for the directions and materials.

      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.
