Minion No-Carve Halloween Pumpkin Craft
These were a lot of fun to make. They took a bit of time, but I had two wonderful little helpers eager to pitch in whenever they could.
Materials Needed For Your Minion Pumpkins
- Acrylic paint(colors: blue, yellow, black, and white)
- Paint Brushes
- Brown and Black Sharpie
- Hot Glue
- Lids from Mason jars
- Black Pipe Cleaners
How To Make Minion No-Carve Halloween Pumpkins
- Paint the top half of your pumpkin with yellow acrylic paint.
- I used regular house paint brushes to paint the larger areas.
- I would wait for it to dry and do a second coat so that the yellow is nice and bright (we only did one coat).
- Paint the bottom half of your pumpkin with your blue acrylic paint.
- Again, wait until it’s dry and then apply a second coat (we only applied one coat).
- Acrylic paint dries quickly, so while your pumpkins dry, start creating your minion eyes.
- The girls wanted a one eye minion and a two-eyed minion, so I used a larger mason jar lid for the one-eyed and then two small mason jar lids for the two-eyed minions.
- To create the eyes, flip the mason jar inside lid inside out. You want the white side up so you can draw the eyes on them.
- I then used a black and brown sharpie to draw the eyes. I also dotted a little bit of the white acrylic paint on the eyes to make them look more realistic (see the first picture at the top of the post).
- Using the hot glue gun, seal the white lid inside the silver rim and then glue on your minion.
- With a black sharpie, you can also draw a mouth, or you can use some acrylic paint as we did for our two-eyed minions.
- Using your black acrylic paint and a small brush, paint the stem of your pumpkin and draw a line about 2 inches wide around your pumpkin.
- These are to simulate the minion’s goggles. Also, make sure to add a little bit in between the goggles, or you can use a black sharpie to do this.
- Using a black sharpie, draw your minion’s overalls and pocket with Gru’s infamous villain symbol.
- Using a black sharpie, draw circles as buttons and dab a little bit of white acrylic paint right in the middle of the buttons.
- With a smaller paint brush, paint some yellow on top of the blue overall area about 4 inches wide halfway on your pumpkin.
- To create the minion’s hair, you can either poke holes into your pumpkin and stick your pipe cleaners in, or you can glue them on.
- We chose to glue them on because we want our pumpkins to last until next month for our youngest daughter’s birthday party.
