Try it! Halloween Crafts – wine cork toys

I just couldn’t resist it!! after a recent forage for corks at our local Italian restaurant we picked up some perfect ‘body shaped’ champagne corks and we made a list of ALL the character sets we were going to make…. promising Antonio, the owner of the restaurant, that we would make one of him in thanks for his generosity :)

The joy of champagne corks is that they already have the head and tapered body so you can go straight to painting.

Halloween Crafts For Kids – trick ‘r treat character toys

I stayed with the standard spooky characters of Skeleton, Dracula and good oul Frankie….. they look so cute as mini wine corks!!

Begin by painting on a base layer of white or skin coloured paint to knock out the natural cork colour and you’re ready to go.

For added humour I decided one of the characters should have a mokawk!!, so I glued a piece of card on top, and sealed it on to the head with just a few little pits of papier mache (took less than 5 minutes)

Then just start painting….. and adding the accessories to make the characters take on a life of their own
– Little scrap of felt for Dracula’s cape (I didn’t have bright red at hand :(
– beads for Frankie’s ears
– black pipe cleaner wound around and glued into position for Frankie’s doo
– pom pom fluff (yes I hoard that too!!) for the skeleton’s mohawk

fun, fun, fun!!

ready for trick ‘r treating in a playroom near you

enjoy
