Good morning everyone! Here’s what you’ll need for this easy craft:
- Coin wrappers for quarters (I bought an entire bag of wrappers at the dollar store)
- One-inch gumballs (in a pretzel cello bag) or other wrapped candies
- Black duct tape
- Black crepe paper
- Black cardstock
- Double-sided tape
- Hot glue
- Google eyes
- Black and red sharpies
And here are the easy DIY how tos:
- Stuff the coin wrappers with gumballs in food safe pretzel cello bags, or other prepackaged candies, as you would with coins, folding over the edges to secure.
- Cut a piece of duct tape large enough to cover the opening of the wrapper and fold down the sides a bit.
- Rest the tape on top of one end of the wrapper.
- Use scissor to cut slits in the tape, then fold the edges down and secure.
- Measure and cut a piece of green paper long enough and wide enough to fit around the coin wrapper.
- Use double-sided tape to secure it in place.
- Measure and cut a piece of crepe paper long enough to wrap around the top edge of the coin wrapper.
- Cut the crepe paper in half lengthwise, then cut triangular snips out of the paper to create hair.
- Use double-sided tape to secure the crepe paper around the tape-wrapped edge of the coin wrapper.
- Use scissors or a large heart-shaped paper punch to make a 2 to 2 ½ inch heart out of black cardstock.
- Fold the tip of the heart over about ¼ of an inch, then secure it to the back of the coin wrapper with a dot of hot glue to serve as “feet.”
- Attach the google eyes to the face of your Frankenstein, then use the sharpies to add accents like eyebrows, a mouth, and stitches.
Thanks so much for having me Kim!
