DIY Halloween Monster Straws Tutorial
To cut out the monsters for the straws I used a Silhouette, but if you do not have one you can just print out the PDF and cut with scissors. Glitter scrapbook paper was used for my monsters but you can also use black cardstock.
If you want the PDF template, click the image below to download your free printable.
Attaching the eyes to the monsters is your first step after you get them cut out. You are going to want to hot glue the eyes onto the monsters. I put the glue on the eyes and pressed them on, instead of putting the glue onto the monster.
Before you glue the monsters on the straws you will want to measure to make sure that the monster won’t be too far down but at the same time you save space for drinking. I put the hot glue on the back of the monster, since the straws are small and round, I didn’t want to cover the straw.
Once you have the monster on the straw hold for about 10 seconds, that way it has enough time to dry and it won’t fall off.
Whats so great about using the 7.5 oz Halloween Monster cans is that each monster comes to life with an augmented reality experience. Just download the app at www.minimonsters.com available in the Apple Store and Google play. The app allows you to record video of your monster experience, as well as take selfies with the monsters.
Post your selfies with your favorite monsters and use the hashtag #MiniMonsters.
