Are your kids anxious to get the Halloween decor up like mine are?! Hoping to stave off a search in the supply room for bags of faux-webbing, plastic spiders, a cackling Grim Reaper, etc., I pulled together this Halloween craft for the boys. My initial idea involved spray paint, acrylic paint, and gloss finish but seriously — if I didn’t have the patience for all those steps, surely my boys wouldn’t either.

This easier version involves just a printout onto full-sheet label paper, these small glass votives, and a miniature potted plant or two. I cut out the monster features myself, peeled just a corner of the backing from each “sticker” and let the kids do the rest.


Alternatively, you could use colored excelsior or dried moss (found in the floral section of the craft store) instead of plants and soil.
