I would not consider myself an artist. Not in the pencil to paper, drawing intricate details type of artist. Macaroni ‘n cheese artist, yes. Shirt wrangling on a toddler artist, yes. Making a raccoon out of a cardboard roll kind of artist, oh yes. The Frankenstein Free Printable in our Frankenstein Printable Craft was so easy to draw, however, and I happen to think he came out pretty great! If I do say so myself.
This hand-drawn Frankenstein Printable Craft really was so easy, as the great thing about Frankenstein is that he’s not supposed to look perfect anyway. A few squares, some rectangles, and there’s Frank. And here’s Frank a few more times with our Tissue Paper Frankenstein Craft and Plastic Bottle Frankenstein Craft, too.
I left his face blank so that we could decorate it with googly eyes along with our own mouth and scars, so that each one was a bit different. You can, of course, keep him just like this. But then, we turned him into a Happy Halloween greeting by giving him a card to hold.
For our Frankenstein Printable Craft you will first need to print the Frankenstein Free Printable on white paper. Then, you’ll need googly eyes in varying sizes, a black sharpie, scissors, glue stick, and orange paper.
Frankenstein Printable Craft
- Frankenstein Printable
- Googly eyes, varying sizes
- Black sharpie
- Glue stick
- Orange cardstock (optional)
Start by printing the Frankenstein Printable on white paper. Cardstock holds up much better, but I found it looked better on regular white printer paper. Use whichever you prefer.
Cut out Frankenstein.
Glue on two different sized googly eyes.
Draw a mouth, eyebrows, and scar lines with the black marker. You can also draw sewn spots on his clothes with the black marker, as well. At this point, Frankenstein could be complete. Or you can turn him into a Happy Halloween greeting.
To turn him into a greeting, start by cutting 2 rectangles of orange cardstock. Write your greeting in black marker on the rectangles.
Cut Frankenstein’s arms off. Don’t worry, we’re reattaching them. Turn the arms around so that the bottom, white side is facing up. Glue back in place. If you’re a stickler for detail, you can color in the white of the arms with a purple sharpie.
Bring the arms around and glue the hands onto the card so that Frank’s holding it.
Isn’t he fun? I think he only looks cranky because he wants some candy. And for more tricks and treats be sure to check out all of our Halloween craft ideas at Our Kid Things!
