It’s officially fall, y’all. You don’t know how long I’ve been waiting to say that. And I have the cutest thing for you today. It checks off all of the boxes. Mickey? Check. Pumpkins? Check. Ornament? Check. Oh wait, did I say all the boxes? I meant all the boxes that matter. It’s no secret that I love decorating for fall, and that I love DIY decorations. So any day I can combine the two is a good day. If you want to have a good day, too, follow along as I show you how to make this adorable pumpkin Mickey mouse ornament.

Make your Pumpkin Mickey Ornament
First off, you need to download the free template. It’s going to be hard to move on without it. After that is done, you need to print it up. Some pieces are printed on different colors, so pay attention. After you have that done, go ahead and cut each one out. Glue the ears to the back of the head, and then glue the stem and leaf on the front. Once this is done, you can move on to the best part- Glitter.
Decorate your Mickey
Once everything is assembled, it’s time to decorate. And around here, that means glitter. Carefully spread glue only on the parts you want glittered, then glitter away! Put black glitter on the face parts and green glitter on the stem. Shake off the excess once it’s done, and store it for later. Or send it to me ’cause you can never have too much. If you absolutely hate glitter, you could skip this step. But I will never talk to you again. (Just kidding… Maybe.)
Add your twine
Technically, I guess you could use ribbon, or even thread, but seriously, do you know me at all? Of course I’m going for black twine. It just looks best on a Halloween-themed ornament, don’t you think? Anyway, just glue this in a loop to the back of the ornament. If you don’t want it visible, just cut out another circle from the orange paper, the same size as the head, and sandwich the twine in between the two, then glue them together. And that’s it! Just find a place to put it. Wasn’t that easy?
