Project Instructions

  • 1
    Cut one 2 inch x 12 inch piece and two 6 inch x 9 inch pieces from one of the Styrofoam sheets using the foam cutter. Cut one 3 inch x 6 inch piece for the mini monster.
  • 2
    Glue the 2 inch x 12 inch piece to the end of one of the 18 inch Styrofoam sheets. This is the taller Blue monster. Glue the 9 inch edge of the 6 inch x 9 inch pieces to the bottom back of the sheets to help the monsters stand up. Glue them centered at one end at a 90 degree angle to the back of the Styrofoam sheet.
  • 3
    Cut the 4 inch Styrofoam ball in half. Cut both halves in half again. These are the large monsters’ feet. Glue the feet in place at the bottom front of the sheets about 2 inch apart. For the toes glue one 1-1/2 inch Styrofoam ball and three 1 inch Styrofoam balls to the feet. Glue them across the rounded front of the foot side by side.
  • 4
    Glue one end of the Blue burlap to the back top edge of the taller monster. Wrap the burlap around the sheet, slightly overlapping each wrap as you go, to completely cover the sheet. Drape wraps of burlap over the tops of the feet leaving the toes exposed. Repeat this step to cover the second monster in Pink burlap. Cover the 3 inch x 6 inch mini monster with Blue burlap.
  • 5
    Cut the 2 inch Styrofoam balls and 1 inch ball in half for the eyes. Cut circles of White felt large enough to cover the rounded side of the 2 inch half Styrofoam balls. Stretch the felt over the half balls and glue the edges to the cut side of the Styrofoam ball. Trim away any excess felt. Cut small circles of Sky Blue felt and glue in place in the center of the eyes. Cut small Black felt circles for the pupils and glue in place as well. Glue the eyes in place on the sheets about 4 inch down from the top and about 1/2 inch apart as shown. Repeat this step using the half 1 inch balls for the mini monster’s eyes. Don’t attach the mini monster eyes yet.
  • 6
    Cut 2 inch wide strips of cheesecloth. Glue the end of a strip to the back of the monster and begin wrapping. Wrap the monsters unevenly allowing some of the burlap to show through as shown. Wrap a thin layer of cheesecloth over the toes to conceal the foam.
  • 7
    Cut out a mouth shape for each of the monsters from the Black felt. Cut out small triangle fangs from the White felt and glue them in place on the mouths. Gently pull a few wraps of cheesecloth away from the face area and tuck the felt mouth in place behind the cheesecloth. Cut pointed eyelashes from the Black felt and glue them above the eyes on the Pink monster. Glue the mini monsters eyes in place.
  • 8
    Cut a 9 inch length of Pink burlap and a 9 inch length of the coordinating ribbon. Lay the ribbon on top of the burlap and tie the two pieces in a knot. Pull a few strands from the burlap to fray the ends. Glue the bow in place on the Pink monster.
