Painting a monster on canvas and hanging them on the wall is much better than having monsters under the bed!
Today’s Halloween craft is incredibly easy but these are also so fun to decorate your home with. We’ve made our monsters plain and easy to paint but let your kids use their imagination if they want to make them spookier.
Here are the items you will need for this project:
Blank Canvas frames. You can use any size that you want and they are easily found at Wal-mart, Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. You will also need foam paint brushes, black sharpie marker, and then some white, black, orange, green and purple acrylic paints.
To make the pumpkin picture, take a foam brush and cover the entire canvas with orange paint. Let dry completely.
After this has dried, take the black sharpie marker and make a Jack-O-Lantern face. Paint in the pumpkin’s face and let dry.
Obviously the ghost is super easy. You don’t need to paint the canvas white but you can if you’d like. Take the black sharpie marker to make a ghost face and then paint with black paint.
Next is our Halloween Frankie. With a foam brush, paint the entire canvas with a bright green paint. Let dry completely.
Take the black sharpie marker and draw downward spikes for his hair.
Paint them in with some black paint.
Next, using the below picture, just free hand drawing Frankie’s face. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be perfect! If your kids are old enough, let them draw this part themselves. It will make their picture an original!
Now take the white paint and paint the eyes and tooth.
Last but not least is our one eyed monster. On this one, you can have your kids follow our example or let them go crazy and create whatever kind of monster they want to make.
For our one eyed monster, paint the entire canvas with a bright purple paint.
Using the sharpie marker, create a squiggly mouth and a large circle in the middle for the eye. Use your white paint to fill in the eyes and tooth. Let that dry then you can also add a black dot in the middle of the eye.
These are now ready to hang to make your house spooky for Halloween!
