Halloween Costume: Lego Block

It’s been a while since I posted a craft project. I’m glad that Halloween is coming. It gave me a good excuse to go through my stash to see what I could cook up for Halloween this year. First, I wanted it to be fairly simple to make. Second, I wanted to use what materials I had. I really didn’t want to buy anything. Third, I wanted it to be cute.

Having gone through my materials and the ideas in my head, I settled on making a Lego block. This is my finished product:


Here are the materials that you will need to make this:

old shoe box, empty tissue paper rolls, brown paper bags (if not available, craft paper), scissors, glue and paint (note: I wasn’t able to paint this yet because I don’t have paint with me–this is the only thing I will buy).

How to do:

  1. Trace the bottom of the tissue paper roll on the paper bag or craft paper. Cut 8 circles and set aside.IMG_2380
  2. Cover the shoe box with brown paper or craft paper.
  3. Cut the tissue paper roll an inch in height.
  4. Glue the circle on the cut tissue paper roll.
  5. Arrange on the box as you would a Lego block.IMG_2383
  6. Paint!

You can attach a ribbon at the back to tie the block to your waist. Cost? Virtually nothing! A very cute, very environment-friendly craft for this holiday. Advanced Happy Halloween to all of you! 

P.S. Posting the end result with paint!
