Halloween is the perfect time to celebrate the movie Coco with this easy DIY sugar skull Disney Pixar Coco Pumpkin. Make your own to celebrate the Day of the Dead.
It’s that time of year again. Halloween mayhem has ensued in my craft room and it’s time to add another Disney pumpkin creation to my Disney Inspired Pumpkin Ideas collection. It’s been a while since I created a fun Disney craft. Over the last few years, I have created a series of Disney pumpkins that you can easily recreate. They are a HUGE hit on Pinterest. To date, my Little Mermaid Pumpkin is my most popular Disney pumpkin creation so far. I love them all and have them proudly displayed in my craft room. Next up is this super duper easy Coco Pumpkin. Wait until you see how easy it is to make.
I loved the movie Coco. But I will be honest, I can’t watch it without a box of tissues right beside me. This film is about family, passions and tradition. The film follows Miguel’s dream of becoming an accomplished musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. Desperate to prove his talent, Miguel finds himself in the stunning and colorful Land of the Dead following a mysterious chain of events. Now, enter this easy DIY Coco Pumpkin. While I didn’t take the time to draw a full sugar skull on a white pumpkin, (because I can’t draw to save my life ; ) ) I simply recreated the colorful headband worn on the popular Mexican holiday.
So here is my BIG secret on how I created this adorable pumpkin. I found this Day of the Dead headband in the costume section at the craft store. I removed the flowers and veil by using a blow dryer to loosen the glue.
Used the glue gun to adhere to the top of the pumpkin and BAM! A sugar skull Disney Pixar Coco Pumpkin was created. I am all about easy folks. And this is about as easy as it gets. Yes, you can recreate this if you can’t find a headband like above. Grab some colorful flowers and tulle at the craft store and use them instead.
Now go forth and celebrate Halloween. And eat candy….lots of candy!
