Halloween is in full flow in our household. Over the past few weeks we have created Glowing Ghosts, explored Fybogel Googly Eye Slime, played with Halloween Straws, made a Spider Web Tuff Spot and hosted a Halloween Tuff Spot linky. As this year will be Adam’s first experience of Trick or Treating we needed something he could carry his Halloween treats in. So we got creative with Bostik and made a DIY Halloween Trick Or Treat Cone.
* Mache Cone
* White Dish Cloth
* Pumpkin lace
* Black electrical tape
* Two googly eyes
We took the economy white dish cloth and cut it into thick strips. These strips would be used to cover the cone to make it resemble an Egyptian Mummy. A bandage could also be used as effectively.
First we wrapped black electrical tape around the mache cone. We left several gaps as it didn’t need to be completely covered. Adam had a wonderful time using the Bostik Blu Stick on the mache cone. It goes on blue and dries clear. It is the perfect glue to use with little ones as they can tell exactly where they have added the glue.
Next we started to wrap dish cloth strips around the mache cone. We overlapped the strips several times to make sure the cone was not visible underneath. Once we completed each white strip we added additional Bostik Blu Stick to secure it in place. We repeated this procedure until we were near the top. Here we left a gap so that the black electrical tape could be clearly seen as this was where we were going to attach the eyes.
To secure the two googly eyes on the cone we used two Bostik Glu Dots. Adam found these really easy to use and we attached the two eyes onto the black electrical tape.
Our Halloween Mummy was complete. All it needed was a handle so that Adam could carry it easily.
To attach the handle we used Bostik Glu Dots. I added a Glu Dot on the inside of the cone and secured one end of the pumpkin lace to it. A Glu Dot was added to the second pumpkin and this was pushed against the outside of the cone. Finally another Glu Dot was added to the non patterned side of the third pumpkin and pushed against the second pumpkin. I repeated the procedure for the other end of the pumpkin lace. Using three Glu Dots on each side and doubling up the pumpkin lace ensured that the handle stayed in place and could withstand some weight once the cone was filled with Halloween treats.
All we needed to do was add some gruesome treats to our DIY Halloween Trick Or Treat Cone. A simple Halloween craft that can be used time and time again!
