Now that October has begun, my kids are already totally preoccupied with Halloween. I craft with them several times a week and all they want to do right now is make Halloween themed things! I recently came across the idea of making toilet paper roll candy holders in a few online tutorials but I didn’t see a witch themed one and I know that witches are what my kids like most about Halloween, so I opted to try out a little tutorial of my own.
Check out these simple steps for making a Halloween candy holder shaped like a witch’s boot! If you prefer following video tutorials to written instructions then keep scrolling to the bottom to find one there.
For this project, you’ll need:
- A gluestick
- An empty toilet paper roll
- A pencil
- Black crepe paper
- Coloured paper (light yellow, black, orange, and purple)
Gather your materials!
Use your toilet paper roll to measure its length all the way along your purple paper. I used the top edge of the page when it was placed on the table horizontally as a guide, marking where the bottom edge of the toll hit on the paper. I did this all the way across the page from one end to the other for consistency.
Cut out a section of purple using the marks you just made to get the length right, and cutting enough out that you know the resulting piece is long enough to wrap all the way around the outside of your toilet roll. This will be the base colour on the witch’s stocking.
