Craft Tips

  • We used quite small pumpkins in this craft, but you could use any size you like, as long as the head and ears are about the correct ratio. Don’t forget to adjust the size of the pot too.
  • Our topiary doesn’t have Mickey’s face carved into it, but you could draw it on if you wish!
