Instructions For Paper Cup Witch Craft
While this Halloween witch craft is very simple to make it might require adult supervision depending on the child’s age and skills.
If making with a toddler, your little one will enjoy watching you put the pieces together and get the final product.
As for a preschool-aged child, depending on the skills you might even feel comfortable letting them use the scissors and the hot glue gun on their own.
And for older kids, this is a perfect craft to do independently.
Step 1: Cut off the top of the paper cup.
By the way, feel free to substitute the paper cup with a toilet paper roll and turn it into a witch toilet paper roll craft.
Step 2: Paint it in yellow color.
Step 3: Make a cone out of black-colored paper, then cut off the bottom with scissors to give it a witch hat shape.
Step 4: Cut a circle shape from the black-colored paper.
Step 5: Glue the cone and circle together.
Step 6: Attach the pipe cleaner around the cone. And hot glue the hat on top of the paper cup.
Step 7: Cut thin pieces from the orange-colored paper. Add them into the craft as the witch’s hair.
Step 8: Add the googly eyes.
Step 9: Draw the nose, mouth, and freckles.
You can get creative and make your witch look spooky, angry, happy, etc. depending on how you draw.
