Monsters made of yarn, just in time for the spooky season.
There’s not much to these monsters, but I think they turned out kind of cute.
Henry and I used the same technique we did for our Yarn Circle Garland.
Henry did very well cutting the yarn this time.
I handed him a pair of my scissors [boy, was this a special occasion to him!], and he had no problems at all cutting it.
[He still holds it funny, but getting much better each time.]
The process is pretty simple.
Add the cut yarn to some glue [water it down a tad to save on glue, but not too much either].
Drop the yarn into a muffin tin and let dry.
You can either be super patient and wait a c
ouple of days or you can stick it in the oven for a good half hour on a low temp [200F or so].
Once the yarn is completely dry, you can take them out of the muffin tin.
By simply adding a googly eye to each yarn circle, Henry made monsters!
[Thanks CraftProjectIdeas.com for the googly eyes!]
Not so scary.
Pretty cute actually.
I added a couple pom pom feet to some of the monsters. But Henry didn’t like them that way.
I wasn’t sure what to do with the monsters, so I added them to our holiday tree.
They don’t quite belong there…
So I’m still on the lookout for a new home for our one-eyed monsters.
I think a spider web may be in the monsters’ future.
Are your kids afraid of monsters?
Henry is 3 years old.
