These Halloween Makes are SO CUTE! You simply have to check them out!

New to the Best Makes Ever! Series? At present it is a series of 40 arts & crafts projects over on the Sky Kids TV. Our Paper Plate Frankenstein Purse, is from the spookily fun Best Halloween Makes Ever edition. Using every day materials, to make super fun and of course easy crafts with your kids! These were created by Helen from Arty Crafty Kids and myself, Red Ted Art, as part of a special creative commission by Sky Kids Uk!

To make our Paper Plate Frankenstein Purse, you will need:

All you need to make your this cute Halloween paper plate craft, is –

  • white paper plate per Frankenstein Purse
  • green paint
  • black construction paper scraps
  • white construction paper scraps
  • ribbon/ string
  • staplers or glue
  • glue stick
  • black marker
  • scissors

It is easy to switch out your materials to suit the supplies and time you have. For example, you could use some green paper plates, if you don’t feel like getting the paints out with your charges (but I find toddlers and preschoolers do LOVE to paint… so do give it a go).

Similarly, you could use black felt instead of paper. Or paint the back of a cereal box black and cut that up instead. OR you could paint on Frankstein’s facial features.

The ribbons I used where actually recycled from paper bags you get in some of the department stores.

So as per usual: work with what you have!!! Have a much fun as you can creating your own details. No need to go out and make unnecessary purchases.
