It’s that time of year again…I’m going pumpkin crazy! No carve pumpkins are always my favorites. They’re a lot easier to make than carved pumpkins and a whole lot less messy!
Ready to get started? Here’s what you’ll need.
Craft supplies for Hello Kitty Pumpkin:
- Foam craft pumpkin (I find mine at Dollar Tree but you can also pay a little more and get them off Amazon)
- White acrylic paint
- Black craft foam – one large piece
- Sparkly craft foam for bow (any color)
- Yellow craft foam for nose
Hello Kitty Pumpkin
You can use any pumpkin you’d like but I love these super cheap foam pumpkins from Dollar Tree. You’ll also need a small bottle of white acrylic paint.
I started by snapping the stem off to make room for the hat.
Next, I painted the pumpkin white. It usually takes 2-3 coats. While waiting for it to dry, I worked on the hat. To make the hat, you’ll need a black foam circle and another half circle (slightly larger).
You can use my free printable to make tracers for the hat cutouts and the rest of the Hello Kitty pumpkin pieces.
Take the half circle and fold it over.
Now fold the other side over and use hot glue to form the pointy part of the hat, then glue it to the round base.
Draw a bow on the back of sparkly craft foam. This had a sticky back (it’s what I had on hand) but ideally I would have used the regular glitter foam.
Cut out the bow and draw in the details with a black marker.
Glue the bow to the black hat.
Now it’s time to work on the ear. Yes, just one ear because the hat will “hide” the other one.Trace your ear, then glue the ear and the hat to the top of the pumpkin.
Now cut out the pieces for the eyes and nose.
Glue the pieces to the face.
The final touch is to cut whiskers from the black foam. Mine were just under 1 1/2″ inches but you can make them however long you like.
That’s it…you have a super cute Hello Kitty pumpkin for Halloween.
