Supplies Needed To Make Halloween Bracelets
*I’ve used paint to make the eyeballs for this project, but you could just as easily use stickers from the craft store that look like spooky eyes or add eye details to neon garage sale price stickers from the office supply section.
How To Make A Spooky Halloween Bracelets
Cut the cardboard tube in half and use glue stick to cover the tubes with black construction paper.
Tuck the excess paper inside the tubes.
Find the seam and cut the cardboard tube to open it so it can slip onto your child’s wrist for wearing.
Modification for Larger Bracelet Size
Depending on the size of your child, the cardboard tubes alone may prove to be too loose around the wrist. If that’s the case, you can poke a hole in each end and thread a rubber band through it, then knotting it together. This allows the bracelet to stay on, but still be stretchy, allowing it to be easily removed.
Use the handle end of a paintbrush dipped in neon paint to dot on eyeballs. You can use white to make some eyes too.
When the eyes are dry, use a toothpick dipped in black paint to add the pupils to the small eyeballs, and use the handle end of a paintbrush to add pupils to the larger eyeballs.
Use a black marker to add eyebrows if you like.
