Awesome Toilet Roll Monsters!

http://mumstakefive.blogspot.com.au/   Pre-school craft  Halloween

You’ll need:

  • 3 x toilet paper rolls
  • 10 squares of toilet paper
  • 2 x large black pipe cleaners (OR 10 x standard pipe cleaners)
  • 1 x A4 sheet of orange paper
  • 3 x pipe cleaners - for arms
  • Stickers - for the eyes, nose and mouth (OR use googly eyes, paint, texta)
  • Craft glue

Mommy Monster 
Squeeze some craft glue on the roll and wrap all the toilet paper around then glue the fold down.
Twist a pipe cleaner around to create the arms. 
Decorate using stickers,googly eyes, paint or texta.

Pumpkin Monster 
Cut the paper in half, length ways.
Glue the toilet roll and wrap the paper around gluing down as you go. Glue the fold down
Twist a pipe cleaner around to create the arms. Decorate the eyes, nose and mouth using stickers, googly eyes, paint or texta.
*I folded a pipe cleaner to make legs but the legs made it wobbly and I think it looks better without them.

Fuzzy Monster
Twist the two black large pipe cleaner ends together to make one long one. 
Using craft glue or double sided sticky tape, wrap the large pipe cleaner around and around the whole roll.
Twist a pipe cleaner around to create the arms.
Decorate using stickers,googly eyes, paint or texta.

    1. Hi! Thank you and Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Awesome! We always have a billion toilet rolls floating around our house (maybe because my hubby is incapable of putting them in the bin) but also because I save them for art projects! Thanks for adding to my list of ideas!
