My little one is getting more excited each year about the holidays. It’s been fun rediscovering the magic of them through her eyes. So this Halloween I decided we would make some glowing Halloween cuties! Like most toddlers the idea of the dark is SCARY! So her room is constantly welcoming in “just one more” nightlight. So to kill two birds with one stone we decided to make our own.
Glowing Halloween Cuties
Tissue paper- white, black, green, orange
Googly eyes- 2 sets
3 wooden spools
1 Green pipe cleaner
3 glass jars
Hot glue gun
- First cut each the black, green and orange tissue paper sheets into squares. You don’t need many; think about 30 or less of 1/2X1/2in squares. Next cut the white tissue paper into long strips to resemble mummy bandages.
- To make each Halloween cutie cover the glass jar with the respective colored tissue paper using the mod podge. Allow to dry. Using your hot glue gun add features.
- For ours we did a pumpkin with heart shaped eyes, tear drop nose and a long crescent smile. Adding a spool for the stem and green curled pipe cleaner for the vine. The mummy was simple- just add eyes. Frankenstein has eyes, yarn mouth and eyebrows, along with two painted black spools for his bolts. He was also made upside down so we could give him black hair.
Make your own monsters, spiders, witches… We would love to see what you come up with. We ran out of time to make our witch but I would love to update this post if she gets finished before Halloween.
*If you are worried about your youngster having a glass jar you could use an empty peanut butter container. That would work wonderfully with the mod podge. You just have to be careful not to overuse the hot glue as it will distort and melt the plastic jar.
