Want an easy DIY to do with the kids before Halloween? Collect pebbles, paint them and add eyes and then you’ve got yourself some cute pebble monsters!

To make these pebble monsters the way I did you’ll need:

  • Pebbles, can be found at the beach or you can buy some at e.g. Michaels
  • Acrylic Paint
  • Self-Adhesive Eyes (Or glue-on eyes and glue)
  • A paint brush
  • A sponge
  • A paint brush
  • A sticker which will be used as a tooth template
  • A utility knife
  • A sharpie

How to

  1. Paint the pebbles. You’ll probably need at least 2 layers.
  2. Fasten the eyes
  3. Cut out a triangle from the sticker, fasten the sticker onto where you reckon the tooth will be and add a couple of layers of white paint using the sponge. If you are steady on the hand you can of course use a small brush and paint the teeth as well. I am not so steady, hence the sponge and sticker.
  4. Use the Sharpie to draw the mouth and to frame the teeth.

My son Albert (now 10 months) puts everything in his mouth, so he did watch this DIY and nothing more. Hopefully he’ll be taking a more active role in crafting next year 😉
