  • Tape
  • Hot Glue Gun


  • Tape the Mickey Mouse pumpkin stencil to the large pumpkin where desired.
  • Using the poker tool from a carving kit or an awl, poke holes around the outline of each face shape. This will create a guide for you to carve. Remove the pattern.
  • Use your carving knife to carve the face shapes using the holes you made as a guide.
  • Cut around the stem with your carving knife. This is how you’ll remove the stem to put the tea light in and out.
  • Use a hot glue gun to glue the small pumpkins to each side of the larger pumpkin, creating Mickey’s ears.
  • Cut out a leaf shape from green felt.
  • Curl pipe cleaner around your finger, trim to length desired.
  • Hot glue leaf to the top of the pumpkin, hot glue pipe cleaner on top.
  • Add tea light inside your pumpkin carving. You can do this either through the nose, or before adding the leaf above, you can cut around the stem like you would a regular pumpkin and have that be the opening. Enjoy!
