Craft Project - Frankenstone
by Wen Zientek-Sico

FrankenstoneCute and budget friendly, this monster isn't very scary, although he does make a handy door stop or a cute garden decoration. We chose to make ours friendly, but for a scarier monster, just go with a more threatening face.

Frankenstone

Frankenstone

1 interlocking brick paving stone

Newspaper

Pencil

Indoor/Outdoor acrylic paint in the following colors:

Black

Monster Green

Deep Purple

Red

Orange

Large brush

Small detail brush

Googly eyes (if you are incapable of painting decent looking eyes like I am - otherwise use white paint)

2 orange chenille stems (pipe cleaners)

Tacky glue or glue gun

Black felt (optional, to protect floors or furniture if using indoors)

Wash and dry the stone thoroughly before starting the project. Place the stone on the newspaper. Paint the sides and the bottom of the stone black and let dry thoroughly. Using the photo as a guide, draw the hairline, vest, and jacket onto the Frankenstonefront of the brick. Paint the face and chest area green, the vest purple, and the hair and jacket black using the photo as a reference. Let the paint dry thoroughly. Add the nose, mouth, eyes (if painting them), stitches, and buttons. Let the paint dry thoroughly once again. Using the glue add the googly eyes if you did not paint the eyes. Take each chenille stem and twist it around your finger to make the bolts for the side of the head. Glue the twists onto the side of his head. If desired, cut the felt to the size of the base of the stone and glue it on firmly. Let the paint and glue dry thoroughly before moving or placing outdoors.
