Out of all of the Halloween characters that you can make, I think Frankenstein is my favorite.

While the movie version isn’t on my must-watch list, including a Frankenstein craft in our fall crafts agenda is a definite must.

Honestly, I like to make some Frankenstein cookies while I’m putting these little guys together every year.

It makes the experience sweeter!

I also like making Frankie’s BFF, the toilet paper roll ghost. Doesn’t everyone need a friend?!

Making a Frankenstein Craft for Halloween

This easy Frankenstein craft is adorable and easy to make.

You don’t even need any special materials; just gather an empty toilet paper roll, some construction paper, glue, scissors, and a marker, and you’re set!

Since some of the pieces of construction paper – especially the white and the black – don’t have to be big, I like to dig around in my paper scrap pile to use leftover pieces instead of cutting up a whole new piece.

If you don’t save your scraps of paper, I highly recommend it!

It will save you a ton of money and be much less wasteful in the long run!

I store my scraps in a gallon-size zippered plastic bag, but you can store them in a folder or legal-size envelope as well.

While I made the eyes out of paper, you could also use googly eyes to make them as well.

I find that sometimes the larger googly eyes don’t stick on toilet paper rolls quite as nicely because of the curved surface, but you do you!
