Gather all supplies. Basecoat one wooden spoon with white acrylic craft paint for the Ghost. Paint one wooden spoon with orange acrylic craft paint on the top, with white and black stripes on the bottom for the Jack-O-Lantern. Basecoat one wooden spatula with green acrylic craft paint on the top and purple on the bottom. Let dry and apply a second coat, if necessary.
Paint zig zag hair on Frankenstein with black acrylic craft paint. Basecoat both ends of a wooden craft stick with grey acrylic craft paint. Paint the center of the craft stick with brown acrylic craft paint.
Using scissors, cut the rounded ends off a wooden craft stick, leaving three pieces. Attach the brown section to the top center of the back of the Jack-O-Lantern with a glue gun and glue sticks. Secure the two grey craft stick pieces to Frankenstein’s neck.
Attach two wiggle eyes to each wooden spoon with a glue gun and glue sticks. Create their cheeks by dipping a new pencil eraser into pink acrylic craft paint. It makes perfectly round dots! You can us liquid craft glue for this project, but you will have to wait for it to dry.
Attach two short lengths of green ribbon beside the pumpkin stem on the Jack-O-Lantern with a glue gun and glue sticks. Trim any long ends of the ribbon with scissors.
Basecoat the rounded end of a craft stick with green acrylic paint. Cut the end to ½” long with scissors and glue to Frankenstein as his nose. Cut a small rectangle from black craft foam and glue to Frankenstein as his eyebrow.
Using a permanent black marker, give the Ghost an oval mouth, give the Jack-O-Lantern a toothy mouth, and give Frankenstein a stitched mouth and scar.
Tie a purple ribbon bow around the neck of the Ghost, securing with a dot of glue. Attach three colored buttons to the handle of each wooden spoon with a glue gun and glue sticks.
Change up the colors and embellishments on the wooden spoons and spatulas to create a variety of Halloween buddies to share with family and friends. A great craft project for tweens and teens to create on their own or with younger kids.
