Simple Halloween decorations from toilet roll tubes

We made these very simple Halloween decorations from toilet roll tubes, some paint and good old googly eyes. I like making things from toilet roll tubes, and we seem to get through so many in our house!

The ghost is a toilet roll tube painted white, with slits cut into the bottom. The bat is painted black with simple wings from coloured paper. The spider is a cut down toilet roll, with legs made by cutting slits at the bottom. Each pumpkin is half a toilet roll tube, painted orange and with a face made from black paper.

I especially like the toilet roll tube pumpkins, I think that they would look really sweet as table decorations for a Halloween party, or you could add a base and fill them with small sweets.

You might recognise the spider as one of my minibeasts, I thought that he would be good for Halloween too!


Do you make things with toilet roll tubes too?
