Halloween parties are really fun for kids, and these days there are so many creative and crafty ways to celebrate! Takes these little Halloween themed treat cups featuring Frankenstein, a Jack O’Lantern, a one-eyed monster and lots of eyes peeking out from the dark. Fill them with edibles and trinkets and they make a great take away when the kids head home.
I originally made this project for my monthly column in the Chicago Tribune.
Halloween is less than a week away, so let’s get started!
[Full printable instructions below] Get some Styrofoam cups and paint them. Use pipe cleaners for handles, twist a couple together to make them strong. Decorate the cups with more paint and Sharpie markers and you’re all set!
I used Americana paint for this project in the following colors: Black, Cadmium Yellow, Sour Apple, Lavender, Cherry Red and appropriately Jack O’Lantern Orange.
Have fun and Happy Halloween!
