If you have an old flower pot, you have the makings of a monster on your hands! Take a look below at how we created a Frankenstein Flower Pot, perfect for the upcoming Halloween season! You too can craft your own Frankenstein, using a flower pot and a few other common crafting supplies. Take a look at how to get started.

Here is what you will need:

All of these items can be found at your local craft shop.

Halloween Crafts for Kids, Frankenstine Flower Pot, #Halloween, #DIY, #CraftDirections:

1. Begin by applying two coats of craft paint to your flower pot. Allow the coats to dry in between for the best coverage. If you need to, you can add additional coats.

2. Once the paint is totally dry (it will take a good hour, as the terra cotta dries slowly) you can attached your eyes. Take a pair of googly eyes and apply a drop of glue to the back of each. Press the eyes to the pot. Hold them in place until they are dry and secure.

3. You can now take the black marker and create the other facial features on your Frankenstein. We made a straight line and added some scores to it to create the mouth. We then made some lines on the top rim of the flower pot to look like hair. You can mimic the details we created, or you can have fun and create your own. There really is no right or wrong way to decorate your monster and make him come to life. Give this easy and inexpensive Frankenstein flower pot a try. It is a great way to get crafty this Halloween season and really have some frugal fun!

Directions:

1. Begin by adding a layer of craft glue to your bottle stopper. Roll it in a dish of glitter. You can choose any color of glitter you wish that compliments your paper choice. Set aside the stopper to dry.

2. Cut a thick strip of Halloween scrapbook paper. We chose a spooky black and white combo. Wrap it around the bottle and secure it with glue.

3. Place a chalkboard label on the front of your bottle. This is what you will write the contents on. If you  don’t have a chalkboard label, use a piece of black construction paper and chalk.

4. Return the stopper to the bottle. Your witch’s brew bottle is now ready to be used. You can actually fill it with your party beverages, or just use it as your holiday centerpiece or décor item. Either way, it is sure to bring some haunting fun into your home. Gather your supplies and give this fun and frugal witch’s brew bottle a try. It is a great way to get into the spirit of the Halloween season for less.

Creepy Apple Mouths, Healthy Halloween Snacks

These fun, creepy, apple mouths are the perfect, healthy snack during this sugar filled Halloween season!  The kids will feel like they are a fun snack, and not even pay attention to the fact that they are eating an apple!

You will need:

An apple

Knife

Sliced or slivered almonds

Begin by cutting your apple into quarters and cut out the seeds.

creepy apple mouths, healthy halloween snacks, #Halloween, #mouth, #teeth, #slicedalmonds, #applesnacks, #healthyhalloweensnacks, #healthysnacks, #halloweentreats

Once you have the apple sliced, you will wan tto turn the slices over and cut into the side with the skin on.  You are just going to hollow out a small section, but do not cut all the way through, like so.  You will want to leave some of the skin on, they will be the lips.  Before you do anything else, if these aren’t going to be eaten right away, you may want to dip the slices into lemon juice.

Now you will slide in the almond slices.  Slide them in just behind the apple skin.  Using a mixture of slices and slivers will give it an extra creepy appearance!  These would not only be a great after school snack, but would work great for a school party, or any Halloween party!

You will need

Pretzels Sticks and mini twists

Almond bark

M&Ms for the eyes

Wax paper for setting up

Begin by melting your almond bark in the microwave for 90 seconds.  I did half a brick at a time.  If it isn’t melted, put it back in for another 20 seconds, taking it out to stir.  Continue those steps until it is melted all the way without chunks.

Once you have the candy coating melted, begin to put your pretzels in.  I started with a twist for the head.  Once it was coated, I fished it out of the candy coating with a fork.  I then allowed the excess candy coating to drip back into my bowl, and set the pretzel on the wax paper.  My pattern was 1 twist pretzel followed by 5 stick pretzels all horizontal under the twist to form the ribs.  Once the ribs are done, do another twist pretzel, but this time do it upside down.  Finally, you will be doing 4 more sticks and laying them for the legs and arms.  If you are using M&Ms for the eyes, now is when you will put them on too.  Continue doing this until all of your candy coating is gone.  I got 12 skeletons out of half a brick of candy coating.  When they were done setting up on the wax paper I used a thin, metal spatula to scoop them off the wax paper.  The skeletons will be fairly brittle in some places, mostly where the head and ribs connect.  Be sure to set them in an airtight container where they won’t be shaken around a lot to avoid them breaking before you are ready to use them.

Now you have a great, inexpensive snack for your kids, a Halloween party, maybe even a school party if you are going to take them yourself.  Not sure how they would hold up in the care of a rambunctious grade schooler!
