MR. PUMPKIN

Step 1:

Paint your styrofoam cup.

Let it dry for 5-10 minutes.

Step 2:

Glue on your googly eyes!

Finish painting Mr. Pumpkin's nose and mouth!

Step 3:

Cut your pipe cleaners in half. Take a few pipe cleaners and spiral them on your finger. Then stretch them out to see the spirals more clearly.

Puncture 4-6 holes at the bottom of the cup. The easiest way to do this is with the end of your paint brush or a pair of scissors.  

Step 4: 

Take your spiral pipe cleaners and stick one side of them into each hole you made. 

Step 5:

Cut your sponge into fun shapes. Dampen your sponge then paint the shapes different colors. Simply stamp your pumpkin with the sponges.

Then there you have it! Your monster pumpkin cup! I hope you enjoyed making this craft. Please share, comment, and like this article if you had fun!

Step 1:

Paint your cup.

Step 2:

Step 3:

Instead of spiraling your pipe cleaners bend them into a zig zag shape. 

Poke holes in Frankenstein's head and then place the zig zag pipe cleaners in the holes. 

Step 4:

Decorate him the way you want. Maybe with scars, glitter, or sponge spots!

BLUE MONSTER MAN 

Step 1:

Paint your cup.

Step 2: 

Glue your eyes and paint your mouth and cheeks on him. 

Step 3:

Simply bend the pipe cleaners with a larger space to separate each zig zag. 

Poke holes in the monster's head and place the pipe cleaners in his head.

Step 4:

Decorate as you please! I would add some glitter and sponge spots myself!
