I was baking up quite a storm yesterday.  The kids have a bake sale and cake walk today as part of their Halloween celebrations at school.  While the last of the cakes was in the oven I decided to put the now empty egg carton to good use and give the kids a quick craft project to do.  A perfect last-minute craft for Halloween.

Photo props are all the rage right now.  These ones are very simple to make.

What you need:

  1. Egg carton
  2. Paint – white, red, black and another bright color
  3. Paintbrush
  4. Wood dowel
  5. Glue gun

To make:

Cut a section of 3 egg cups out of the egg carton.

Paint 2 coats of white paint.  Set aside to dry between each coat.

Once the second coat is dry, it’s time to paint the eyeball features.  A bright color in the center, then a black pupil and red veins.

Set aside to dry. Once dry, use a glue gun to attach the wood dowel to the side of the eye mask.

Have a happy and safe Halloween everyone.
