With Halloween around the corner, my kids have started talking about their costumes and decorating the house with Halloween crafts. Last year, we had spider webs and bats, so we decided to do something different this year.
We started by collecting all the toilet paper rolls that we had around the house: we managed to find 6 ones in good shape and started decorating them.
We had a lot of fun and the kids were happy to recycle these toilet paper rolls into some funny and spooky Halloween crafts.

6 toilet paper rolls crafts for a spooky Halloween
Here is what you need for these Halloween crafts:
All the toilet paper crafts are very easy to make. I only had a strong glue so did all the sticking myself but for the other tasks they were able to do them alone.
Once the toilet paper tubes painted, each craft will require less than 5 minutes. So you should probably paint one day, leave the paper rolls to dry and make the Halloween crafts the next day for example.
1 – The black cat
For this one, we had to check on internet if black cats do have white mustache or not!
Anyway, we started by painting the toilet paper roll in black and left to dry for a bit.
We then folded the top to make the ears and glued the yellow eyes.
We made a hole on the back of the TP roll for the tail and glued the mustache.
You can make two holes for the mustache, which should be easier than we did.
2 – The spider
For the spider, we also started by painting the toilet paper roll in black.
We then cut the bottom of the TP roll and made eight legs.
The last step was sticking the eyes.
3 – The mummy
Guess what? We also started by painting the paper roll in black. Then, we glued the eyes and went looking for some gauze.
We rolled it around the toilet paper roll and made sure the eyes were still visible.
4 – The bat
We started from a black toilet paper roll, to which we glued the eyes.
Then we took a black construction paper to make the wings.
5 – The monster
For the monster, we started by making the holes and twisting the pipe cleaners to make its arms.
We then glued one small eye and two large ones in the middle of the toilet paper roll.
The last step was cutting a mouth in an orange construction paper and sticking it.
You can use any other color if you don’t have orange construction paper.
6 – The one-eye monster
For our last Halloween craft, my daughter wanted to change from black and decided to paint the toilet paper roll in pink. You can use whichever color you want for this one.
We stuck one big weird eye in the middle of the toilet paper roll, made four holes in which we put some pipe cleaners and shaped them into strange arms.
Finally, we added a mouth (we used a pipe cleaner, but you could just color it instead).
We hope you will have as much fun as we did making these little Halloween crafts!
