Tips for Disney Pumpkin Painting

  1. Choose the Right Paint: Use acrylic paint for vibrant colors and durability.
  2. Choose the Right Pumpkins: real pumpkins are great for the season, but a faux pumpkin can be kept for future years. Either make a great base for painting Disney pumpkins. I prefer using a white pumpkin since the colors are truer and require less coats. 
  3. Prep Your Pumpkins: Clean the pumpkins with a damp cloth and dry them completely before painting.
  4. Use Stencils: Stencils can help with detailed designs and make the painting process easier for kids.
  5. Seal Your Artwork: Protect your painted pumpkins with a clear sealant to keep them looking fresh all season long.
  6. Hot Glue Gun and Mod Podge: For adding intricate details like Mickey Mouse ears or other 3D elements, a hot glue gun and Mod Podge can be lifesavers.

Essential Supplies for Disney Pumpkin Painting

  • Acrylic Paints: Vibrant colors are a must for these fun projects.
  • Craft Paint: For small details and touch-ups.
  • Spray Paint: Great for base coats, especially for white pumpkins.
  • Painter’s Tape: To create clean lines and patterns.
  • Mod Podge: Perfect for sealing your masterpiece.
  • Hot Glue Gun: For attaching decorations like Mickey Mouse ears.
  • Small Craft Pumpkins: Easy to handle and perfect for kids.
  • Large Pumpkins: Ideal for bigger designs and more elaborate creations.
  • Fake Pumpkins: Durable and reusable for years to come.
  • Mini Pumpkins: Great for quick and simple designs.
  • White Paint: Essential for adding highlights and base coats.
  • Black Paint: For outlines and darker details.
  • Blue Paint: Especially useful for characters like Elsa or Stitch.
  • Red Paint: Perfect for characters like Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.
  • Glitter: To add a little extra sparkle!
