Halloween is one of my favorite holidays, and it's such a great time of the year to get super crafty with your kids. We are making a fun looking little popsicle stick Frankenstein craft today! This one is really easy to make and can even do double duty as a Halloween decoration.

Supplies | Shop the Post Below

  • Craft Sticks
  • Cardstock
  • Craft paint (green, black, white, gray)
  • Paint Brushes
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Black Marker

Cut a rectangle out of cardstock (you can also use an old cereal box) in the same length as your craft sticks, not as wide though. Apply a generous amount of glue and start placing craft sticks on the cardstock, one next to the other, until you cover the whole cardstock. Let the glue dry completely before continuing.

While you are waiting for the glue to dry, paint one craft stick gray. When the glue dries, paint the craft sticks on the cardstock green. Let the paint dry completely.

Once the green paint is dry, paint the Frankenstein hair with black. With white paint, draw two white circles for the eyes. Let the paint dry. Once all is dry you can continue adding facial details either with a fine tip brush or by using a marker (marker being the easier choice). Draw two black spots inside the eyes, mouth and most importantly a few scars and stitches as all Frankenstein monsters need to have those, right?

Time for the finishing touches, even though even now our Frankenstein is looking fierce. Take the gray craft stick and add some glue to it. Stick it on the back of the Frankenstein head, just under the hair line to make the bolts this monster needs to function. All done! Cute and scary!
