Mickey Pumpkin Wreath Instructions:
STEP 1: Draw the Mickey Pumpkin face on the large dome and start carving with the craft knife. Use it like you would with a real jack-o-lantern. Carve only partially through the foam and use the knife to pull up chunks of the foam.
STEP 2: Cut the ears out of the disc pieces using the knife.
STEP 3: Apply foam smoother to the carved portions of the ears and Mickey face using a plastic knife. Just like frosting a cake! Let it dry and lightly sand if needed.
STEP 4: Spray paint or use acrylic paint to color the pumpkin Mickey orange. Use yellow paint for the eyes and mouth.
STEP 5: Use toothpicks with glue to attach the ears to the back of the Mickey head.
STEP 6: Layout your garland to loop around the wire wreath form. Use twist ties or string to attach the garland to the wreath. Use spare leaves or flowers to fill in any gaps.
STEP 7: Loop a twist tie through the Mickey head to hang from the center of the wreath.
STEP 8: Hang it up and dream of Fall at the Parks!
