Hello Kitty Pumpkin How To
I got DIY Inspired from this Hello Kitty pumpkin I saw on Pinterest. My daughter LOVES Hello Kitty and so do I! I remember collecting Hello Kitty “stuff” when I was little circa early 80’s. When I saw this pumpkin I HAD to make it for myself…I mean my daughter… This would be perfect for a Halloween party for your little ones.
Here are the materials you need:
- Construction paper (white, black, yellow, and orange)
- Double sided tape
- Black felt
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Paper cutter
- Circle punch (optional)
We went to a local pumpkin patch and picked up a white pumpkin, I found the perfect shape for her head. If you can’t find a white pumpkin, you can spray paint or paint a pumpkin white.
I used my daughter’s Hello Kitty doll as a guide. She has several different sizes, so I found one that was closest to the pumpkin size. The most important part of this craft is getting the shapes and proportions correct. First I cut out all the shapes for the face, a yellow nose, two black eyes, and six black whiskers. Using double sided tape, I glued each piece following my doll guide.
Next I cut out the ears. Initially I cut two because I wasn’t sure if the hat would cover the right ear. I used the pumpkin as a guide for the base of the ear. I used hot glue to attach the left ear.
Next I cut a circle out of black felt for the rim of the hat. I used felt because I like the floppy look. I hot glued it to the top.
I made a cone shape out of black construction paper and hot glued it to the top of the hat as well.
Next, I cut out the iconic Hello Kitty bow using orange paper, scissors, and a circle punch for the center. I used double sided tape to attach it.
There you have it! A super simple and fun Hello Kitty Pumpkin the perfect Halloween craft!
