{DIY} Halloween Mobiles

We are continuing our craftiness with these super easy and super spooky DIY Halloween Mobiles. We spent our morning crafting these spooky monsters out of toilet paper rolls and some paint. My 4 year old loved painting and making his monster super scary and insisted on hanging them in his room. No complaints there!

What you need:

Empty toilet paper rolls (at least 3)

Paint and paintbrushes

scrap book or construction paper



ribbon or string

embellishments (Googly eyes, pipe cleaners, stickers, etc.)

Hole punch

How to make: 


Start by painting your toilet paper rolls any color or style you wish. The spookier the better.

Blake painted his with Captain American and The Hulk in mind.

Once they are all painted. Let dry a few minutes. Ours didn’t take long to dry at all.

Add spooky embellishments like googly eyes, crazy arms, spooky spiders, and anything else to make your monster scary.

Punch a hole into the back of your roll and tie ribbon or string through each one to attach.

Now, we did not do it perfectly. The idea was to string a ribbon through EACH roll SEPARATELY at different lengths and tie the ends of the ribbon together to form a mobile.

However, when you have a 4 year old who insisted they all be on the same ribbon together, so they wont be scared, it’s hard to argue with that.

So, cut 3 different lengths of ribbon, tie through holes on back of rolls and tie the loose ends together and hang


Cut one long piece and string all three together tieing at each hole and continuing to the next, then hang.

Happy Halloween!
