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!

I couldn’t help it, I had to do it! So here is a quick tutorial on how I made this old coupe a new coupe! (Check out our new Minnie Mouse Backpack we made to go with the coupe!)
We have had a cozy coupe for about 7 years now. It was time to either trash it or to make something new with it.

Minnie Mouse Coupe
First I started with this coupe, and I gave it a thorough scrubbing.
After you have your Cozy Coupe scrubbed clean, it’s time to disassemble this little car.
The next thing you want to do is cover your wheels with plastic. Then you are ready to get your Primer out. You will want to Prime first to make sure your colors adhere well.
After your primer has dried, it’s time to paint your Cozy Coupe pieces. I used Valspar paint for plastic with this car.
Once your paint dries, it’s time to put your cozy coupe back together and get ready to decorate. I don’t have a picture of this together that isn’t fuzzy, but it is basically the cozy coupe with pink and black rather than yellow and red.
After this was together, I went ahead and broke out the Silhouette Cameo and made her dots and name. I wanted to personalize it, but also like that when she hands this down to one of her little friends, we can personalize it for them as well.

Next up was to make the ears. I spray painted these little disks (I picked up from Michaels for $1) black, and then grabbed some black adhesive felt. Since I used such thin disks, I wanted something to help them look like fuzzy ears, and also help them stick up. The sticky felt worked out well.
I attached the felt ears, made the bow, and we were ready to go!
For the bow, I used a foam board. It was easy to cut, and I added some smaller white dots I made with the Silhouette machine. Attached this to the ears, and we were all done!
Addy was so excited when she saw her new car!
It didn’t take long for her to invite a passenger to ride with her. Sorry Felix, this Coupe is for ONE.
