Trolls are still the hottest character with my kids! I like them, too! They are so cute and fun and just provide this positive, dancing energy in my life whenever I see or hear them! So it was a no-brainer that I make my kids a Troll Pumpkin that will last forever!

How to make Troll Pumpkins

Materials:

Instructions:

  1. Head into a well ventilated area and spray your orange pumpkin pink following the directions on the can. Let dry. A second coat may be necessary.

  2. Cut a piece of blue fur to make hair 9″ x 10″. Angle the edges so you have a trapezoid shape.
  3. Fold the long edge of the hair and glue with hot glue. This just creates a cleaner edge. Lay 3 pipe cleaners on the back side of the hair and attach them with hot glue. Trim excess. This will help stand your hair up.

  4. Attach hair to the pumpkin in a straight line. I found it easiest to attach the center of the hair with hot glue to the pumpkin and then attach the edges. Just make sure you keep the hair straight across.
  5. Use a blue foam sheet to cut out two years about 4″ x 2-1/2″. Cut out a small nose out of blue foam that measures about 3″ x 1-1/2″. With black foam, cut out eyebrows. Attach 2 eyes, eyebrows, ears and nose to the front of the pumpkin with hot glue.

  6. Add a crooked smile for Branch with a black permanent marker.
  7. To make Poppy, follow the same hair steps as Branch but use pink faux fur.
  8. Use pink foam to cut out a nose and ears for Poppy. Use black foam to cut out eye lashes and attach to the google eyes. Attach eyes, ears, and nose to the front of the pumpkin with hot glue.

    Where can I buy the foam pumpkins? And how big are they?

      You can buy foam pumpkins from Oriental Trading, Joann Fabrics, Michaels, Amazon and I’ve even seen them at Lowe’s. The size is about a 9″ diameter pumpkin.

      I need more details! What is happening? My best guess is the hair is falling down? When you attach the hair to the front, in the center, add hot glue and affix to the front and press down and let set. Then add hot glue to one side at a time. When you attach the hair to the pumpkin on the side, make sure it remains in a straight line. You might be angling it downward. This will cause the hair to fall. Another support option is to put a pipe cleaner perpendicular/across the other pipe cleaners to hold it up.Does that make sense? Let me know what is going on so I can try to help you further.

        When you put the faux hair on, are you cutting two pieces and gluing them together with the pipe cleaners in between them? Confused. 🙂

          Margie, you put the pipe cleaners on the back of the hair to make it stiff and stand up when you attach it to the front of the pumpkin. Does that help?

    Can you tell me what brand and color pink spray paint you used? There are so many different pinks, but yours is perfect..I also can’t download the templates…

      The brand is Rustoleum and if you click on the text that says “Pink Spray Paint” it will take you to the exact color! Which templates are you looking to download? There aren’t any for this Trolls project.
