If you’re looking for a fun paint project, it doesn’t get much better than these Fork Painted Monsters! These colorful, furry monsters are perfect for the fall season, as a Halloween craft, but monster crafts are great any time of year.
Fork painting is an easy way to achieve a fun result without the real need for artistic ability. So it’s great for kids just getting used to working with paint. We still love this Fork Painted Ostrich that we created awhile back. These Fork Painted Monsters are sure to be a favorite, too! And, little ones get to learn about shapes while making their monsters.
First and foremost, you will need paint for our Fork Painted Monsters. Lots of different colors of paint. The rest of the supplies include a fork to paint with and make the monsters furry. Also, googly eyes in varying sizes, white cardstock, a black sharpie, scissors, and glue.
Fork Painted Monsters
- Acrylic paint, assorted colors
- Googly eyes, varying sizes
- White cardstock
- Black sharpie
Begin by creating the shapes of your monsters.
Squares, circles, ovals, triangles, diamonds, pentagons, rectangles. All you need to do is draw a shape with a black sharpie on a sheet of white cardstock and make a set of simple arms and legs. I found that 2 monsters work well on one sheet, but you could make a single large monster, too.
Now, dip a fork in a squirt of paint and begin making the monster.
Use the tines of the fork to make a furry look. Let the paint dry.
Draw a monster mouth on another sheet of white cardstock. Make the lines thick enough to cut out.
Glue a googly eye in place. Large eyes, multiple smaller eyes. Whatever your monster has going on. And glue on the monster mouth.
A simple and oh, so fun paint craft! I absolutely love these furry monsters! Be sure to check out more of our Halloween crafts at Our Kid Things!
