Get Crafty with Little Monsters {Craft Tutorial}

I was at the dollar store yesterday and found a great stock of simple craft supplies (Walmart has some of these things for less than a dollar). I took everything out and started playing around them. What to make with pipe cleaners, pom poms, craft sticks and googly eyes?

I glued the eyes to the pom poms and took it from there! Pretty soon I had a neat looking little monster and my daughter loved it! We were off with a fun craft that’s simple enough for a toddler and fun for mom too!

Here’s what we did.



• Craft sticks
• Pipe cleaners
• Googly eyes
• Pom poms
• Glue
• Markers


1. Let the kids pick out their supplies. Get creative. That’s half the fun of it!


2. Tie the craft sticks together with the pipe cleaner. I did two styles. One was crossed together like and “X” and the other had the sticks side by side.


3. Glue the googly eyes to the pom poms (we used blue stick glue that dries clear).


4. Bend the pipe cleaners into a circle at the top and tuck the pom pom inside. Shape them in any crazy way you’d like!


5. Get out the markers and draw on the craft sticks creating hands, feet, mouth, nose, tail or whatever your little mind likes.


6. PLAY!


  1. What a great and fun idea to teach my grandchildren to use their imaginations. It will be interesting to see who makes what. Thanks for the idea.

  2. These are so cute! My kids and I love to do crafts and have a ton of supplies purchased from dollar stores and WalMart sales. I’ll bet they would love to try this and we probably already have the supplies! Thank you for a darling idea to keep them occupied for a little while before school starts again!

  3. This looks fun and easy. I have 4 nieces all under the age of 5 so we are always looking for new boredom busters that won’t break the bank.

  4. These are cutie little things. The kids could have fun making their own figures . Easy for them to make and a way for them to be creative. Thanks for the tutorial. These supplies could be bought at the Dollar stores most likely.

  5. I’m planning a monster party for my son’s 4th birthday. This is a cute idea for a craft for the kids. Thanks!

  6. I have been looking for fun craft’s for my lo’s birthday party and this would make a great craft for the kids to do or even supply them in the goodie bag to take home and make their own
