Does your family love all things Disney as much as mine does? We feel super lucky to live near Walt Disney World and last time we went, I came back totally inspired. Fall season was in full swing and I love seeing all the fun fall decor and pumpkins on Main Street!
When we got home and were trying to come up with new cute pumpkin ideas for the blog, a Mickey Mouse pumpkin immediately came to mind! I can’t think of a better way to bring the Disney magic home!
I guess I was feeling inspired because we just came back from a trip to Disney and this seemed like a fun way to bring the Disney magic home.
This year I even made a Baby Yoda pumpkin and oh my gosh, is he cute!!!
I love using these styrofoam craft pumpkins because I can do pretty much anything with them! You can pick them up on Amazon but I get mine from Dollar Tree because well, you can’t beat the price.
You have to go early though. I’ve been buying these for years but each year they sell out earlier and earlier…I guess everyone else is discovering how much fun they are to craft with too!
Don’t forget to pick up an extra one so you can make this Minnie Mouse pumpkin too. We wouldn’t want Mickey to get lonely, would we?
Mickey Mouse Pumpkin
Luckily, I was able to totally stock up. I’d already made Baby Yoda and a Harry Potter pumpkin but I had enough left for Mickey and Minnie Pumpkins too!
Ready to get started? Grab your pumpkin and let’s get crafting!
- Use a pencil to draw a horizontal line around the pumpkin. Paint the top half black and the bottom of the pumpkin red. You may need two coats. (I made two because I was making a Minnie Mouse pumpkin too). Set aside to dry.
- I traced a coaster to make the ears and created an easy template for you to print out. Cut out the pieces and use them to trace ears on black foam. The template includes a bow in case you're making Minnie too. (Note: I used a coaster but it you're using a bigger pumpkin than this, you may need bigger ears. You can trace around a bowl, large round lid or anything else that happens to be the size you need).
- If the paint on the pumpkin is dry, you're ready to glue the ears. First hold them against the pumpkin to be sure they fit flush against it. You may need to trim them a little to get a perfect fit. Once they look good, place glue along the inner curve of the first ear and attach it to the pumpkin, holding it in place until the glue dries.
- Add a little bit of glue on the back of the ear too, just to be sure the ear is firmly attached to the pumpkin.
- Now open your buttons. My pack had several but you'll only need two. I link to some from Amazon but I picked mine up (1.25") at Walmart for much less.
- Glue the buttons on the front of your Mickey Mouse pumpkin, just below where the black starts.
- That's it! Super easy and now you have a Halloween pumpkin that everyone will love...because who doesn't love Mickey Mouse!
Not only did this Mickey Mouse Halloween pumpkin turn out super cute but Halloween crafts don’t get much easier!
