Toilet paper rolls are the most versatile (and inexpensive) craft item in our stash – so it only makes sense to make a bunch of Halloween toilet paper roll crafts!
When it comes to crafting, nothing beats using recycled materials, and our collection of Halloween craft ideas for kids has quite a few recycled projects.
We love to use paper rolls for everyday crafts as well as holiday fun like this Toilet Paper Roll Monster Trio.
A little paint, a few craft items and you have an adorable collection of Halloween themed decorations that are too cute to be scary.
Grab your empty toilet paper rolls and lets get started making these party monsters!
Here are just a few of the ideas for a crafty Halloween party:
A bandaged mummy (great for expired first aid bandages)
And a simple ghost perfect for all ages
How to Make Halloween Toilet Paper Roll Crafts
You will need:
- Toilet paper rolls
- Green, black, and white craft paint
- Googly eyes
- Black beads
- White gauze bandage
- Craft glue
- Black marker
Step by Step Instructions
The first thing you want to do is put on the base layer for each roll and let that dry. We painted the inside of our mummy black, frankenstein green, and of course white for the ghost.
Allow your paint to dry completely, while you are waiting you can paint another batch!
Once the paint is dry you can begin adding all the fun details.
Ghost- Just like with the mummy we are going to glue eyes in place, then all you need is to draw on a moaning mouth with a black marker.
Mummy- Glue googly eyes on your painted roll about ¾” of the way up and wrap in white gauze, be sure to let his eyes peek out a bit! Glue each of the ends down securely.
Frankenstein- Frankenstein was a lot of fun to create, we glued small beads to his “neck” but if you don’t have any on hand you can use black buttons, or small pieces of black pipe cleaners.
Glue on some eyes and draw in that famous Frank hair with your black marker, don’t forget to give him a mouth.
What other monsters can you create with your toilet paper rolls?
You can keep right on making them until you have enough to throw a monster mash!
