My son's FAVORITE Halloween craft....

I don't do a lot of "kid friendly" crafts. Its not that I don't think they're cute its just...well crafting time is ME time so I just tend to stay away from kids stuff. But, when inspiration strikes, what can you do?

I forgot to take a "before" picture...rookie mistake, but we'll make due...
So it started with a metal platter, a block of floral foam, and a piece of black posterboard (all from the Dollar Tree). I painted the platter orange, and put magnets on the back. I cut a thin piece of floral foam and hot glued it behind the lip of the platter (for the stem), and then I used the black poster board to cut various face shapes, to which I also attached magnets (I had a roll of magnet from Walmart on hand already).

Hang it on your fridge and your kids will be busy for HOURS.....
Disclaimer: Don't mind the fingerprints all over my fridge...thus is the life of a black refridgerator...hrmph

He LOVEEEEEEEEEEEEDD changing the faces around and using different combinations. And for $3 I bought myself a couple hours of free time...wellllllll worth the investment :)


  1. Ooo, great idea! I can see this working with a Christmas tree plate and making stars & ornaments to decorate it with!

  2. That's a cool idea, and yes, I can see a lot of holidays getting their own version.

  3. What a super idea and super mom for doing something so fun for the kids!
