I’m always on the lookout for ways to decorate for Halloween that are spooky enough to satisfy my kids’ desire for scary decorations, but not so scary that I can’t sleep at night! This month’s craft is a quick and easy way to add a some spooky fun to your front yard.
Black acrylic paint and paintbrush
Hot glue gun
Step 1: Insert one toothpick into two Styrofoam balls to connect the balls together. About half of the toothpick should be in each ball.
Step 2: Wrap a twist tie around the toothpick, leaving the ends sticking out.
Step 3: Pull the Styrofoam balls apart slightly, leaving the toothpick inserted. Apply a small dab of hot glue at one end of the toothpick, and then press the two Styrofoam balls together and allow the glue to dry.
Step 4: Use the black acrylic paint to add small circles or ovals to create pupils. Let dry.
Step 5: Using the twist tie, attach the eyes to a shrub and get ready for a spooky good time!
