DIY Sheriff Callie Halloween Pumpkin Craft is easy and perfect for no-mess pumpkin fun! My girls love Sheriff Callie, so of course, we needed to create a fun pumpkin craft for Halloween!
After our Minion Pumpkins last year, my girls assumed that creating a Sheriff Callie would just come naturally!
Well… let me know what you think!
Materials Needed To Make Sheriff Callie Pumpkin Decoration
- Acrylic Paint in white, light brown, grey, black, and pink
- Large paint brush and several small thin brushes
- 1 Sponge cut into 2 small circles
- 1 Pink Cowgirl hat
- White and Pink Construction paper
- 2 Toothpicks
How To Paint Sheriff Callie Pumpkin Craft
- The first thing you want to do is to make sure that your pumpkin is cleaned of any dirt or debris on it. You don’t want to start painting and then get your brush all dirty.
- Paint your pumpkin completely white. Try to get the bottom of your pumpkin as much as possible as well; this helps seal your pumpkin and helps it last a bit longer. Our Minion Pumpkins last year lasted from October to the end of November for our daughter’s Minion birthday party.
- Allow the pumpkin to dry completely, so you do not smudge any of the paint over the white. I suggest at least 12 hours before starting on Sheriff Callie’s face.
- The first thing I did before starting to use the paint was to use a pencil and sketch how I thought the face should look. This helps just in case you make a mistake; you can either erase it or touch it up with white paint once you are done with everything.
- Using a small brush, paint Sheriff Callie’s eyes, nose, and mouth.
- When creating her spots, use the small round sponges to sponge on the brown and grey colors.
- Also, color the pumpkin’s stem in either a brown or grey color.
- Make sure to allow the paint to dry well after each color so that there is no rubbing or smearing.
- To create Sheriff Callie’s cat ears, I gave the girls each a piece of white paper and had them sponge on the same color grey we used on her spots.
- They then glued a pink triangle right on the sponged area once it was dried. We then cut out two large triangles using the grey sponged paper.
- The easiest way to attach the ears to the pumpkin was to tape a toothpick on the back and stick it right into it. Measure how far forward you want the ears before placing her cowgirl hat.
That’s it! This was a fun project for us to do together!
Even the hubby helped out and said that it was a great idea, but most importantly, my girls love their Sheriff Callie Pumpkin Decoration!
So much so that they have already planned another pumpkin idea!
Oh, my!! I think I’m in trouble!
