Yesterday was the first day of Fall. This is one of my favorite times of the year and always look forward to the day that I can finally pull out my Fall Disney door decoration (please excuse the old door). The pumpkin has a removable layer to display the Jack-‘o-lantern underneath, but I usually leave it covered until Halloween day.
And before you ask, I purchased this MANY years ago (before I ever owned a home of my own) at a Disney store outlet, so I doubt it is still available for purchase. But it is my favorite Fall decoration, and I love pulling this out of the closet each October. When I see this, it reminds me of cooler weather (even though it may be 100 degrees outside) and also has the BEST character, Sorcerer Mickey (of course, his real title is the Sorcerer’s Apprentice Mickey, but it gets shortened ALOT).
To go with my favorite door decoration, we also love to carve pumpkins (and roast the seeds…YUM!). We’ve tried cutting, painting and light bright pegs, but for all of these you need to start with a great design and stencil. I’m not great at freehand, so I really LOVE when someone makes my life easier by sharing their templates.
Colleen at ClassyMommy.com has a post on Disney stencils for designing your pumpkin this fall. All of the favorite characters are represented such as Frozen and princesses, but also the Villains 🙂
Have fun being creative!
