Autumn is slowly beginning to appear on the coattails of summer, and Walt Disney World is definitely ready for the season! Although most people associate fall at the Disney parks with Halloween celebrations, Disney World’s 50th anniversary means that there’s going to be a lot of special decor going up in the parks before October 1st. One autumnal Disney staple that always heralds in the season will be back, but after having a “magical 50th anniversary celebration makeover”: it’s the Main Street, U.S.A Mickey Mouse wreaths! These Mickey Pumpkin wreaths adorn the Magic Kingdom’s Main Street each autumn, and the Disney Parks Blog has released a tutorial for anyone who wants to make a classic version of the iconic Mickey Mouse Wreath decoration at home. Mallory, a popular Disney DIY influencer, has created the official Mickey wreath tutorial!
Mallory is known for her Disney DIY tutorials (which she shares on her website, Instagram, and occasionally her Youtube channel), and she’s an avid Disney fan. “When I think of fall at Disney Parks, I think of Main Street, U.S.A. Strolling with an iced pumpkin coffee and seeing rows of these cute wreaths. I’ve been wanting to recreate this wreath for a while but couldn’t figure out the Mickey portion.” Mallory told Disney. “After working with foam on a previous project, I felt more confident to try this out. TIP: The foam smoother is seriously a game changer!”
The supplies for this DIY activity include a half foam sphere, two foam discs, a foam smoother, orange and yellow paint, a wire wreath form or floral wire, a fall garland, a craft knife, toothpicks, twist ties, and glue. Parents are advised to supervise children who are helping or nearby. Follow these downloadable directions to get started with your own Mickey Pumpkin Wreath, then use the hashtag #DisneyCreators if you want to show off your creation online–and follow Mallory’s other tutorials, like the “Star Wars” one below, if you want to try more!
Always use caution when handling sharp objects, and arts and crafts tools. Please supervise children who are helping or nearby.
