I have said many times before here on The Farm Girl Gabs that I LOVE glitter. Seriously, the more glitter the better. And while it is the messiest craft item to use, it is definitely the prettiest in my book. Last year, I showed you how to make a pretty Minnie Mouse Pumpkin. Well, Minnie was lonely. So to round out my DIY No-Carve Disney Pumpkin series for this year, I decided to create the mouse that started it all. The boss. The one and only Mickey. Now, I know that Mickey is not a glittery type of guy but I needed to give this easy craft project some pizzazz. Throw some glitter in the air and get crafting!
Here is what you need to make your own Mickey Mouse Glitter Pumpkin
- 9″ white craft pumpkin
- Red Chunky Glitter
- Black Chunky Glitter
- 2 Large White Buttons
- White Glitter
- Mod Podge
- Glue Gun
- Painters Tape of thick rubber band
First things first. Cover your work area because messiness will ensue! Use the painter’s tape or rubber band to section off Mickey’s body. Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the top half of the pumpkin. Sprinkle with glitter. Let dry totally and repeat the process. Allow to dry completely.
Do the same for the bottom portion of the pumpkin, only with the red glitter. You can also add glitter to the two white buttons while you are waiting for everything to dry.
Waiting for the pumpkin to dry is the worst part….because patience is not my strongest quality. But once your Mickey Mouse Glitter Pumpkin is totally dry, use a glue gun to secure the buttons onto Mickey’s pants.
They really do make the perfect pair don’t they? You can find all of the Disney Inspired Pumpkin Ideas here.
