Back for a second round of Halloween crafts, this is a Creature Double Feature! Not to mention both of these crafts would be great for kiddos.
Alisa Burke, and her Refine Creativity blog, has a very cute tutorial on Paper Roll Monsters. It sounds hokey but they are actually really cute! Just grab your paper towel/toilet paper rolls and craft paint yourself some Little Monsters! I'm a fan of the puff ball deely boppers. This would also be cute as a gift packaging; wrapped in cellophane so you can see the monster face, tied with ric-rac and stuffed with toys and candy.
The Long Thread has a pretty darn cute Candy Bowl tutorial. The bowls are made out of papier mache and paper bags, decorated to look like ghosts and Jack-o-Lanterns, but you could totally make a Frankenstein too. I like that they look a bit worn. But not as worn as they will after Halloween!
