Bring the Sanderson sisters to your home this Halloween night with these DIY Hocus Pocus Pumpkins. No black flame candle needed! You can make them with craft paint and a few simple supplies. In fact, these pumpkins are so easy to make, my 11 year old daughter Hazel made them all by herself! I was so impressed by her creativity, I had to share them with you.

Pin this Hocus Pocus Pumpkin Idea:

Our family loved Disney’s Hocus Pocus 2 with Bette Midler as Winifred Sanderson, Sarah Jessica Parker as little sister Sarah Sanderson, and Kathy Najimy as Mary Sanderson. Not quite as good as the original movie from 30 years ago, but still a fun new addition to our favorite Halloween movies!

Need a last minute Halloween decoration that will be a big hit with your trick or treaters? Make the witch sisters from the beloved film these with faux pumpkins!

Show off all of Winifred’s best features including her fluffy orange hair, rosy cheeks and big teeth! The hair is made by covering two foam balls with sparkly pom-poms. White and red foam give the mouth and lips a 3D effect.
