Striking in just black and green, Frankenstein is such a great character to craft. Everything from his jagged bangs to the scar across his eyebrow, the lopsided eyes and the bolts on his neck. Little touches that really make the guy who he is, and they’re so fun to craft together.

So fun, in fact, that we’ve done a few over the years. Like our Plastic Bottle Frankenstein, a Tissue Paper Craft Stick Frankenstein, and these Paper Plate Halloween Treat Boxes, with good ol’ Frankie included. We also made this Frankenstein Printable that you can color in.
