How to Carve a Mickey Mouse Pumpkin
If you’re not sure how to get started, don’t worry.
We’ve got you covered with a step-by-step guide on how to carve a Mickey Mouse pumpkin.
Just grab a pumpkin and a carving knife and you’ll be ready to create your own Mickey Mouse masterpiece in no time!
Here’s everything you need to know about how to carve a Mickey Mouse pumpkin of your own:
What You’ll Need:
- 1 medium-sized pumpkin
- A sharp knife
- A large spoon or scoop
- Pencil or black permanent marker
- Tape or pushpins
- Optional: a printable Mickey Mouse stencil (we have lots of stencil ideas below for you!)
What to Do:
Step 1. Start by cutting off the top of the pumpkin, making sure that the opening is wide enough for you to reach inside and scoop out the insides.
Step 2. Next, use a marker or pencil to sketch out a basic outline of Mickey Mouse onto the front of the pumpkin.
If you’re using a printable pumpkin stencil, you can attach it to your pumpkin with tape or pushpins, then trace it.
Otherwise, you can freehand it! It’s a good idea to start with a pencil, then go over it with a marker if needed.
Step 3. Once you have your outline, start carving out the details of Mickey’s face. Start with his ears, then move on to carving out his eyes, nose, and mouth.
Step 4. Once you’re finished carving, scoop out any remaining bits of pumpkin flesh from inside the pumpkin.
Step 5. To finish, use a black permanent marker to add pupils to Mickey’s eyes and make any other final details. Then, place a candle inside the pumpkin and light it up!
And there you have it! Your very own Mickey Mouse pumpkin that’s perfect for Halloween.

Make the famous couple with paint, a pumpkin and a little bit of magic. It may be a little difficult to freehand if you aren’t comfortable with your drawing abilities, since you’re not drawing on a flat surface.
This option is probably best for those who are a little crafty!

Pumpkins, foam, scissors and glue…what could be easier?
Enjoy a classic Mickey with this idea. And since there’s no cutting of the pumpkin or scraping out gooey pumpkin innards, it’s great for kids to help with.
Make a Night of It!
Carving pumpkins is always more fun with friends, so be sure to invite some over and have a carving party.
Everyone can choose their favorite Disney character for their own pumpkin or go with a different variation of Mickey Mouse!
Either way, you’re sure to have some fabulous Mickey Jack-O-Lanterns!
Serve some delicious Disney-themed snacks like a candy corn krispie treat, play some fun Halloween games, print some Disney Halloween coloring pages, and make some great memories.
You could even make these Mickey Mouse cake pops, but use orange instead of red for a festive treat!
You can even watch one Disney’s many Halloween themed movies like Hocus Pocus, The Nightmare Before Christmas (Jack Skellington pumpkin, anyone?), HalloweenTown, or Frankenweenie while you work.
Or, add these Disney Halloween songs to your playlist for the night and print a Disney Pixar Halloween countdown chain.
