Whether you're decorating a child's room or creating your own invitations to a firefighter-themed birthday party, you may need to know how to draw a fireman's hat. Luckily, drawing your fireman's hat isn't complicated; once you have a few geometric base sketches on paper, you can erase overlapping lines and darken your final lines. Do a few practice sketches until you get the feel of things before moving on to where you actually need to draw your firefighter's helmet.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Draw a tall semicircle lightly on your paper with the rounded edge along the top and the flat edge on the bottom.

  2. 2

    Draw a second semicircle using the same base as the first, but make this semicircle wider along the base and only half as tall as the first. Center this semicircle slightly off to the right from the centre of your first semicircle.

  3. 3

    Draw a vertical line down the centre of your first semicircle. Draw a second vertical line parallel to the centre line that starts on the left side of your first semicircle.

  4. 4

    Draw a horizontal line at both the top and bottom of your parallel lines to connect them and form a rectangle. Draw a triangle on top of the rectangle.

  5. 5

    Erase any lines within the rectangle from the semicircles. Erase the straight line from the base of the triangle, which is also the top of the rectangle. Also erase the lines of the second semicircle that appear within your first semicircle.

  6. 6

    Darken the remaining lines of your rectangle, triangle and first semicircle. Draw in detailing such as putting a number in the centre of your rectangle, if desired. Darken the line along the bottom of your semicircles to emphasise and shade the base of the hat.

Tips and warnings

  • As you work your drawing, remember to press lightly on the initial lines you draw so you don't leave impressions on your paper even after you have erased the lines.
  • Add more detailing to the hat, depending on what you want it to look like, or colour it in when you finish with a red crayon or coloured pencil.
