Get ready to show your Disney side with custom Disney Magic Bands! All you need is 20 minutes, a Silhouette Machine, and some vinyl. Trust me, you’ll end up with a new craft obsession and some truly nerdy wrist-wear.
As if I really needed another obsession but…..I found one.
Let’s just add magic bands to the ever-growing list of things you can put vinyl on. Because it’s such an awesome idea that I can’t believe I never thought to do it before now!
The best thing is that you can pretty much do anything with your bands. Get them ready for Toy Story Land or just show your love for your favorite characters. They can be anything you want them to be!
Over the weekend I was organizing my closet and found three untouched Magic Bands still in their box. We have so many of these things that they kind of show up at random times when we’re cleaning. They’re everywhere. Most crafters fear glitter everywhere, I fear my house getting overrun with magic bands.
It’s totally possible y’all. We have a lot of them.
Which actually works out in my favor because now I can vinyl all the things! With so many Disney characters there are hundreds of possibilities. Decorating them my never get old.
Why customize your Disney magic bands with vinyl?
- It’s a fun way to use up vinyl scraps!
I cut lots of vinyl and always have small pieces laying around that I never know what to do with. Making small decals for my magic bands is a really easy way to get rid of those scraps and create something cute with it!
- It’s a cheap craft.
This is a cost effective way to create something fun and unique for your next Disney vacation.
- It’s a fun project for kids to help with!
I love getting my toddler involved in projects (if I can) and having him decide what characters to put on his magic band is really fun for him. It also gets him excited to wear it AND hypes him up for the vacation. If you have older kids they can weed and apply the design to the magic bands as well.
The other great part about this craft is that it takes 20 minutes to do. And you know how much I love those quick and easy crafts!

I had the hardest time getting the Mickey design to stick to my band. For that one, I skipped cleaning it with rubbing alcohol and I really believe that’s why I had a hard time with the vinyl. It’s also why Mickey only has three fingers on one of his hands. 🤷🏻♀️
But it’s so simple. Even with the little hiccups I had the project was fun and easy. And you know what? If you mess up or get bubbles in the vinyl you can easily move it and fix it. Just be careful with small pieces. That’s actually the real reason Mickey only has three fingers on one of his hands!
