Painted Cinderella Pumpkin


With Disney’s new Cinderella movie being released on digital HD, DVD and Blu-ray on September 15th we decided to celebrate by creating a Cinderella inspired pumpkin.  Plus, I’m giving away a digital HD copy of the new movie to one lucky reader!  Details below…

Have you seen the new version of Disney’s Cinderella?  I love the shade of blue mixed with gold.  It was a given that when we decided to paint our pumpkin that we used bright blue glitter with gold accents.

To make our pumpkin complete we had to include a Fairy Godmother wand to the top.  You cannot have Cinderella without her Fairy Godmother, after all.

How to Make a Cinderella Inspired Pumpkin

Cinderella pumpkin painted

We used a plastic pumpkin so it would last through Fall and if my daughter wants to display it in her room as Disney decor she can.  You can decorate a real pumpkin if you prefer.  We poked a small hole in the top of the pumpkin for the wand.  Spray paint your pumpkin and then let it sit to dry.  We let ours dry over night before decorating.

Add stickers to pumpkin

Peel and stick your gold accents to your pumpkin.  These scrapbook stickers worked well without much hassle.  If they start to fall off, simply use hot glue and place a small dot on the pumpkin to hold down the jewels.

add butterfly for wand

The butterfly came with a little metal pin attached to the back of it.  I was able to poke the pin into the end of the lollipop stick to hold the butterfly in place.  The pin was flexible so I could arrange the butterfly in either direction on the stick.  If your wand topper does not have an easy way to attach it you can just dab a drop of hot glue to connect.  I used a very small piece of curling ribbon to finish off the wand.

This Cinderella inspired pumpkin was very simple to make and even the kids can help you.  I actually love it so much I’m thinking of putting it into my office!

Which family member is the biggest Disney fan in your home?


  1. I would say I am my families biggest Disney fan. I have most of Disney’s movies. At least the cartoon ones. I collect Tinker Bell and Eyeore.

  2. Oh, it’s tough to say who is the biggest Disney fan in our family, as we are all big fans, but I’m going to guess it’s me!

  3. That pumpkin looks awesome! I loved the new Cinderella Movie -and so did my girls! Thanks for linking up at a Round Tuit! Hope you have a lovely week!

  4. My husband loves Disney & fairytales in general more than most husbands, but I am the true fan. I’m hoping to pass on that love to my little girls. The older one is a year and a half & is starting to get into girly things, so I’m hoping she will love Cinderella as much as I do. This version was the most magical one yet, I must have it in my collection!

  5. Visiting from Treasure Box Tuesday. That pumpkin is gorgeous! My youngest daughter loves Cinderella. I think she would have a blast making one of these pumpkins to display in her room.

  6. I’m just amazed by your creativity. I wouldn’t, in a million years, have thought of decorating a pumpkin like this. And it turned out SO GREAT! You can tell immediately that it’s Cinderella’s pumpkin. I think I’m going to try to do this instead of carving a pumpkin this year. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  7. Just beautiful and so creative! I hosted a lovely luncheon celebrating the movie last Fall and I wish I had thought to decorate the pumpkins like this! I am pinning this and sharing at Twitter, FB and G+ but I would LOVE it if you would stop by and share this at Celebrate it Sunday!
