With everyone losing their minds over the new Rose Gold Minnie Ears available at Disney Parks, I had a sudden rush of Rose Gold inspiration. Specifically, Rose Gold Minnie Ears Pumpkin inspiration. (It’s possible I’m always thinking about my next Halloween project.)
To make your own Rose Gold Minnie Ears Pumpkin, you’ll need:
- A Craft Pumpkin (I used a half pumpkin that is meant for hanging on the wall, but this tutorial will work on a full pumpkin as well. You can even use a real pumpkin!)
- Rose Gold Spray Paint
- Large Button Blanks (I used 3.5″ buttons I found at Michaels for less than $2. You just need a large round surface that’s the appropriate size for the pumpkin you’re using.)
- Rose Gold Fabric or Ribbon (I found mine at JoAnns.)
- Chunky Rose Gold Glitter (I found mine at Michaels.)
- Glue or Decoupage Medium
- Utility Knife
- Hot Glue
- Rose Gold Paint (Optional)
- Clear Gloss Spray (Optional)
Pop out the back of the plastic buttons.
Use a utility knife to carve out a slot on each side of the pumpkin to add the button ears.
Use hot glue to secure the ears to the pumpkin.
Give everything a spray of rose gold paint.
Add a layer of glue or decoupage medium to the ears and sprinkle on the chunky rose gold glitter. To keep the glitter from falling off, give it a generous coating of clear gloss spray. Alternatively, give it a thick top coat of decoupage medium or glue.
If you want an extra sparkly pumpkin, brush on a light layer or rose gold glitter paint to the body of the pumpkin.
Use hot glue to create a tube of rose gold fabric. Use more hot glue to create a smaller tube to fasten in the middle to form the bow.
Glue the bow to the top of your pumpkin.
