Decorating your magic band is a fun activity you can share with your kids as a way to “prepare” for your upcoming Disney trip.You could buy an already-designed one from Disney, but where is the adventure in that?Yes, you can do it! No, it will not “mess” with the gadgetry or “interfere” with the RFID or void your entry. And if you end up hating it, that’s why God created Nail Polish remover! Have fun with it! Here are a few ways to spice up that plain ole magic band.
color or just coloring in the cute Mickey head on the top of the band and using
some glitter polish as an added pixie dust effect.If you are good with
freehand drawing, you can draw on the magic band and then paint it in with
acrylic paint or nail polish. Draw in pencil first. Then once you have an
outline of what you want, go for it.No matter what kind of paint you use, I would recommend that once it’s dry you go over it with 2 coats of clear nail polish. If you don’t like the glossy look, you can get a matte top coat. Go over the entire top of the band, not just where you painted.
If you don’t do the whole band you will have spots that look unfinished.Make sure that BEFORE you paint it you size it to your wrist and see where the band overlaps, if it needs to be adjusted or trimmed. Wrap it around a water bottle or keep it snapped
together for the best results. If you paint it while it is flat and it dries
flat, when you go to wrap it around your wrist the paint will crack. This
minimizes that effect.
4. Apply w water the same way you’d put it on skin. BUT be careful not to move it too much or it will split. If it does, have no fear. You can just wipe it off or if it is dry, use a little bit of nail polish remover and try it again.
I actually had these on hand. But you can buy them at a craft store.
will need a very strong adhesive for these or they will just pop right off. Super glue is not strong enough. I used E6000®; which is an industrial
strength crafters glue available at most craft stores.This worked very well. I
wore mine for a week straight (including the pool) and I only lost a
couple crystals. The ones that did fall off were in places you’d almost expect them to
pop off and only did so towards the end of the week. I probably wouldn’t have
worn it in the pool so much if I had it to do over again.
personalize your magic band from as simple as a sticker to ultra crafty
“Mickey in the Sky With Diamonds”. During our trip we got lots of compliments on our bands from
guests and cast members alike. Its a fun, easy activity that you can do with craft supplies you may already have at home.
How will you be customizing your band for your next trip?
