Tsum Tsum Disney Pumpkins

Tsum Tsum pumpkins main 2
Two of my most favorite things in life are Tsum Tsum plush and the holiday season. So what better thing to do than unite my loves by making adorable Tsum Tsum pumpkins?!
Full disclosure: I got the idea to make Tsum Tsum pumpkins here. But I thought I’d try it out and let you guys know how it went.
I recruited my mom for help on this one because she’s a better painter than me and we love to do projects like these together. First of all, I’d like to warn you: Creating all five pumpkins took my mom and I about 8 hours. It was a lot bigger of a project than I anticipated. I’d recommend just trying one or two if you don’t have a ton of time to spare. Second, the most important part of the whole process is to let the paint dry. If you don’t, it will smudge and you’ll end up with flaky tie-dye pumpkins. Not cute. Third, when in doubt, look at the pictures. The pumpkins look complicated but really they’re just a few shapes.

Steps:
1. Clean off your pumpkin with a wet paper towel.
2. Paint the back half of the pumpkin red. You may need two or three coats.
3. Draw the face shape using white. Each side is similar to a B shape. Connect them in the middle.
4. Fill in the space between the white and red with black to create his face. Paint the stem black as well.
5. While you wait for the paint to dry, cut out two circles and tape toothpicks to the back. We used cups to trace circles on the paper. You’ll stick these in his head for the ears.
6. Finally, paint on his eyes and nose using a small paintbrush. Remember it’s much easier to make them bigger, not smaller. So start with tiny shapes.

6. Draw and cut out a bow on the red paper. Use the hole punch to create white dots for the point. Glue them on to create the polka dot look.
7 (optional). Paint white polka dots on the red half to give her skirt some extra style.
8. Finally, paint on her eyes and nose using a small paintbrush. And don’t forget her eyelashes!
I think a fun variation on this would be changing red to pink or purple or maybe blue. We all know Minnie has more than one outfit.

5. Tape a toothpick to the back and stick in at the top of his head.
6. His eyes are two black circles. Paint those using a small brush.
7. Add his red bow tie. We just free-handed this. It’s a circle in the middle with two wide triangles on each side.

6. Tape a toothpick to the back and stick the hat a little off center above Goofy’s face.
7. Cut out his ears using the black paper. Fold the paper and cut them out at the same time so they’re symmetrical. Tape them on the sizes of his head.
