Here is another addition to my son's Mickey and the Roadster Racers Birthday Party. The centerpiece is simple and easy. I used ideas from the DisneyJunior website and also images from the show and recreated them using my Cricut Explore. This can also be created by just printing the images from the DisneyJunior website and creating the centerpiece.

Grey Kraft Cardstock Paper Pack 8.5x11-50 Sheets Yellow Cardstock - 8.5 x 11 inch - 65Lb Cover - 50 Sheets To create the centerpiece I made checkered flags with paper from scrapbook.com and added the deep red Mickey ears to the top of each flag. Then I made the tire image (this one is used on the show) using 3 different size circles, largest in black cardstock, next size white cardstock, then red cardstock, then grey cardstock with black Mickey ears in the center. After creating the tire I glued the tire onto the wooden dowel and then created the same tire image on the other side of the dowel, so now your centerpiece is two-sided.
For the other part of the centerpiece, I used grey cardstock to create a nut and bolt (I think thats right, I'm not a nuts & bolts experts), then in the center of the bolt, I glued the black circle, then I layered the red circle on the black and glued the Mickey ears in the center. To make this image two-sided I just added the circles to other side (the same as the front).
For the last piece of the centerpiece I did black Mickey ears in cardstock and added the number four in yellow cardstock because that's how old my son will be.
I used hot glue to glue everything together. Just remember to go over all the pieces when your done to get off all the tiny pieces of glue/strings. In the bottom of the red bucket, I glued styrofoam balls to the bottom of the bucket once I decided how I wanted my centerpiece to look. At first I was going to do checkered flags on each side of the centerpiece, but I decided I just didn't like it and only put one in the front. You will use one styrofoam ball for each dowel.
Now your centerpiece is complete!
