DIY Disney Frozen Elsa Pumpkin – a sparkly pumpkin made with glitter, rhinestones, and snowflakes that every little princess will enjoy!
Hey crafty friends! Are you ready for some pumpkin decorating ideas? If you have a little ones who love Frozen you’ll like today’s post. My daughter is obsessed with Disney’s Frozen movie, especially Elsa. But who am I kidding? I think I love Frozen just as much as they do! I may or may not have watched the entire movie by myself on Saturday night. In my defense they fell asleep, but can you blame me? Disney adds little puns and phrases for everyone in the family. I mean seriously, who wouldn’t want their very own Olaf? His perception of summer makes me laugh every time. Like I was saying, Madi loves Elsa and her beautiful shimmery blue gown. We’re currently working on a homemade Elsa costume that we’ll share on the 15th. Since we are such big Disney Frozen fans our home needed an Elsa pumpkin. I’m also sharing how you can win a $250 Michaels gift card by entering their #TrickYourPumpkin contest!
Step one: spray pumpkin with glitter blast. We used almost an entire can to get the desired color. It’s important to lightly spray the coats on to avoid drips. Let each coat dry completely before adding another coat.
Step two: Decorate pumpkin with rhinestones, rhinestone tape, and snowflakes. We used the bling on a roll (rhinestone tape) down the lines of the pumpkin. We skipped a line or two if they were too close. The rhinestone pack we used had two different sizes, so we made a pattern alternating them down the center of the pumpkin. Then we finished with the snowflake stickers, alternating between silver and white.
Step three: add a tiara. Because every princess pumpkin needs a tiara! We used a tiara from Madi’s dress up costume. You can find crown pretty much everywhere or make your own with rhinestones and metal headbands.
What do you think? We spray painted a smaller pumpkin for her to decorate with snowflakes. She’s so excited for her friends to come over and see them. We have an Olaf pumpkin coming up this week, so stay tuned!
