I really didn’t know what to call these, so I went for Captain Obvious and called them ‘Glow Stick Cardboard Tube Monsters’. Creative, I know!

Okay, so I’ve cheated a little on this one…I made this a few weeks back as an experiment for when Halloween gets closer and when I will make a lot more of them to go in the bushes in the front garden to spook the trick or treaters who knock on our door :D

But, I just didn’t get a chance to craft today, and since this was already part done, I thought it best to share something, rather than nothing!

Just take a bunch of cardboard tubes – I used toilet roll inners, but you could cut down kitchen towel tubes, or even the inside of a roll of wrapping paper. Paint them black, then cut out scary faces with a craft knife (cut carefully so as not to catch your fingers).

When you are ready to display them, snap a glow stick to activate it, then pop inside – I secured mine with some tape. Then, hide them in the bushes to spook passers by at Halloween!

Sorry for the need for sunglasse when looking at the above picture – realising that the first image isn’t going to explain anything, I felt the need to take this photograph, just now, with flash, on white paper. Don’t ask! I’m tired!

I will re-post when I’ve got all of my spooky glow stick cardboard tube monsters [rolleyes] finished – I’m sure they’re going to look fab!
