Cardboard Tube Ghouls for Halloween

With Halloween creeping up on us, it’s time to start thinking about fun and easy crafts you can do with your kids. You’ll love this craft because of its simplicity, and gosh, they are just too cute too! These would make fun napkin holders for a Halloween party, or just display them on a shelf. Another idea is to fill small cellophane bags with M&Ms or Skittles and place them inside each ghoul at the party table.

  1. I literally just thought to myself as I came out of our master bath, “I have to figure out something to do with all these toilet paper rolls.” We save all of them but then I never know what to do with them, so most of the time they end up in recycling. This is adorable and totally something my 4 year old would love!
