Measure and cut pool noodles as follows- Green 6”; Black 5”; Orange 4” and 3”; Purple 2” with a serrated kitchen knife (adult supervision required for this part).
Frankenstein – Attach two wiggle eyes. From black craft foam, cut a circle for the top of the head, hair, eyebrow, nose, and mouth then attach it to a green pool noodle with a low temp glue gun and glue sticks. Cut the silver pipe cleaner stem in half, bend both pieces in the shape of a bolt (or letter T), and then insert one in each side of Frankenstein.
Jack-O-Lanterns – Attach two wiggle eyes. Cut out the nose and mouth from black craft foam, then attach them to the orange pool noodle. Cut a rectangle from brown craft foam, fold it in half, and secure the ends with a low temp glue gun. Cut a leaf shape from green craft foam. Wrap a green pipe cleaner around a pencil, then slide off to create a vine. Attach the stem, leaf, and vine into the hole at the top of the orange pool noodle with the glue gun.
