Coffee Filter Monsters

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love creating spooky crafts and decorating the house with my son. We put on a fun Halloween movie or a silly Halloween music playlist and start creating. It's always a good time! Recently, we made these scary tie-dyed coffee filter monsters. They were incredibly easy to make and they turned out so cute!

These are the materials you'll need.

Coffee Filter Monster Instructions

  1. Cover your workspace with newspaper. This craft can get a little messy.
  2. Color the coffee filters with washable markers. Use as many colors as you like and don't worry about leaving white spaces. The bigger markers work best.
  3. Use your spray bottle filled with water to saturate each coffee filter. If you don't have a spray bottle, put the colored coffee filter under running water for a second or two to get it wet. This is messy, so be careful!
  4. Lay the coffee filters flat on newspaper and let dry. This takes between 20 minutes to an hour.
  5. Once the coffee filters are dry, you're ready to create your monsters! Use construction paper to cut out eyes, mouths, eyebrows, horns, whatever you like! Be creative!
  6. Glue your creations to the coffee filter to create your scary monsters.
