Scrap Wood Blocks - I used scrap 2x4s and 1x2s, but you could use 2x3s, 2x6s or any other scrap wood you have laying around.
Scraps of fabric (for the mummy)
Here is how I made each of my monsters.
Step 1: Cut your wood
You can cut your blocks to be whatever size you want. I rummaged through my scrap bin and used scraps that were 3"-5".
Step 2: Sand
Ensure that everything is sanded smooth.
Step 3: Paint
I did not use any kind of template. I just drew on a design with pencil and then painted it. You could also do a search for templates and then trace them on.
Step 4: Glue on extra parts (if applicable)
Step 5: Enjoy your Bootiful Halloween decorations!
Use your wood block and cut two small blocks from a 1x2 for the bolts. You could also use a dowel, screws, or bolts.
Use your wood block and cut a small block from a 1x2 for a stem. You could also use a dowel or even a stick.
Nothing extra is needed for this one. Just paint it!
Use your wood block and cut two triangles from a 1x2 for ears. The eyes I painted are not the greatest, but they work for me. I had originally painted on a nose, mouth, and whiskers on my cat. But then it looked too friendly, so I painted over them. Now I think it looks like Batman. Oh well, he is kind of scary, too!
These scrap 2x4 Halloween monsters are inexpensive, quick, and easy to make. They would make a great kid's project. The kids could personalize the monsters anyway that they want.
