Materials needed to make one popsicle stick Frankenstein:
- 9 popsicle sticks
- 2 googly eyes
- Black marker
- Green paint
- Black paint
- 1 black pipe cleaner
The first thing you will need to do is line up 8 popsicle sticks next to each other. Take another popsicle stick and glue it horizontally across. Make sure to use a generous amount of glue, especially at the two ends.
Note: If you are doing this entire project with kids, you will probably want to use some type of kid friendly school glue. However, if you will be preparing the popsicle stick portion beforehand, you may wish to use hot glue. This will be much quicker to dry and provide a stronger hold.
Once the glue is completely dry, you can flip the popsicle sticks over and begin painting the bottom portion green. I painted in a zig zag pattern to leave room for Frankenstein’s hair. Depending on the opacity of your paint, you may have to use more than one coat of green paint like I did.
Next, go back in and paint the top portion of the popsicle sticks black to create Frankenstein’s hair.
Make sure you let the paint completely dry before moving onto the next step.
After all the paint has dried you can glue down two googly eyes. Next, cut the black pipe cleaner into two small pieces and glue above his eyes to create his eyebrows.
Finally, go back in with black marker to draw on Frankenstein’s mouth, nose and stitches.
You can either use black marker for this step, or use the black paint from the previous step.
And there you have it!
What you do with your popsicle stick Frankenstein craft?
Here are a few ideas of what you can do with your craft now that it is completed:
- Attach a craft magnet with an adhesive back to the back and use it as a fridge magnet or to decorate your fridge for Halloween.
- Glue a piece of string or twine to the back of the craft to create a fun Halloween door hanger.
- Use it as a toy! I know my kids absolutely love using these types of crafts for pretend play. They give them little voices and make them a part of their toy collection.
