Who doesn’t love Mickey Mouse, right? Every year I have a blast coming up with cute pumpkin ideas and I’m a little shocked that I didn’t think of making a Mickey Mouse pumpkin until now.
I guess I was feeling inspired because we just came back from a trip to Disney and decided we needed a little more Disney magic.
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!
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 my Minnie pumpkin and a Mickey Mouse pumpkin 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 half 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 more glue along the base at the back, just to be sure the ear is firmly attached.
- 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 pumpkin turn out super cute but Halloween crafts don’t get much easier!
Almost as easy (just add dots and a bow) was this fun Minnie Mouse pumpkin. We wouldn’t want Mickey to get lonely, would we?
