With Halloween creeping up on us, it’s time to start thinking about fun and easy crafts you can do with your kids. You’ll love this craft because of its simplicity, and gosh, they are just too cute too! These would make fun napkin holders for a Halloween party, or just display them on a shelf. Another idea is to fill small cellophane bags with M&Ms or Skittles and place them inside each ghoul at the party table.

Supplies you will need:

  • Scissors
  • Cardboard tubes
  • Craft paint: green, purple, orange, yellow and red
  • Black Sharpie marker

Cut each cardboard tube in half. If using paper towel tubes, cut them into fourths.

Paint each one a different color: green, yellow, orange, purple and red. You can change up the colors if you like!

When the paint is dry draw on faces using a Sharpie marker.

I drew my inspiration for these little guys from the Halloween Painted Jar Luminaries I made back in 2009. :)
