Tinkerbell pumpkin

If you love all things fairies, like my daughter, you will love this Tinkerbell pumpkin! This year, make your fall season magical when you put this fairy spin on your own pumpkins. Take a look below at how we made it happen, using just a few simple craft supplies. This is a craft your own little fairies will love to try!

Supplies needed:

  • Pumpkins (you can use real or fake. For our sample below we used a plastic pumpkin that worked great!)
  • Minty green and white craft paints (Around $1 each at our local craft store)
  • Green and yellow glitter (or as we like to call it, pixie dust!)
  • Paint brushes
  • Q-tips (optional, these work great on the pumpkin stem)


1. Begin by applying several coats of the minty green paint to the pumpkin. Allow the coats to dry in between applications to make sure you get good coverage. A basic paint brush or foam brush is great for this task.
2. Apply the final coat of minty green paint then sprinkle with your green glitter. It is important that you sprinkle the glitter while the green paint is still wet. This is how it will adhere best.
3. Take a small brush or even a q-tip and apply some white paint to the stem of the pumpkin. While the white paint is still wet, sprinkle on some yellow glitter. Again, be generous and don’t worry if any gets on the green portion of the pumpkin.

So gather your supplies and give this fun and frugal Tinkerbell pumpkin a try. It is a fun way to bring the magic of Disney into your fall season!
