I love using discarded items to make fun crafts like these colorful monster mashup creations! With some help from my niece, we created silly and spooktacular monsters to decorate the house for Halloween. For our creations, we used packing crinkles for our monster fur, bubble wrap for spooky monster skin, and added cut-up egg cartons for a perfect set of bulging eyeballs! What items will you use to make your monsters?
- Construction paper
- Other items such as bubble wrap, egg cartons, packing material, cardboard, etc.
Cut your monster body and out of construction paper, as well as paper legs, arms, spikes, tails, or whatever else you want your monster to have. Glue your paper appendages to the monster’s body.
Accessorize! Use glue to add egg carton “eyes,” packing material “fur,” bubble wrap “skin,” and any other fun details you can think of to your monster body.
Finish up your monster mashup creation with some more marker details.
Show off your new scary monster! Happy Halloween!
