The Halloween season can be so much fun! Creating crafts is one way we make it just a little more special. Have you been following our 13 Days to Halloween Crafts? We began with our Countdown Wheel, then we shared a pumpkin Mask Craft, witch light craft, a cute black cat craft, the candy corn craft, a ghost bookmark, the vampire craft, the mummy craft, the Frankenstein craft, the bat craft, the skeleton craft and now our amazing Zombie craft!
What you will need:
You most likely have all the supplies you need already in your home, if you don’t, a quick run to your local drugstore or
office supply store should be able to supply you with all you need, however, I have included affiliate links to Amazon where you can purchase everything you will need.
- 1 cup of flour
- 2 cups warm water
- mixing bowl
- Newspaper or paper towel cut into strips
- Green paint
- White paint
- White construction paper
What to do:
- Make paper mache: Mix flour and water in a mixing bowl until it has the consistency of thick sludge.
- Inflate the balloon to the size you like and tie closed with a knot.
- Now, drag the newspaper or paper towel strips one at a time through the paper mache.
- Once thoroughly saturated, drape strips around the balloon. Repeat in overlapping layers until the entire balloon is covered with wet strips.
- Set aside a day or so until the paper mache is dry and hard. Now paint your zombie a light green.
- Next, draw eyes on white construction paper and cut them out.
- Glue the eyes onto the head.
- Draw on the nose, mouth and any distinguishing marks you like.
