Easy Kids Rock Painting Witch Craft
1 – To make your rock witch craft you’ll need to start by painting your chosen rock. We love to use acrylic paint because it covers with just one coat so we’re not left waiting for ages for layers of paint to dry! We chose typical Halloween colours of green, orange and purple.
2 – Decide how long you want your witch’s hair to be and cut an old scrap of cardboard to that length. Then wrap coloured yarn around it. The more times you wrap the thicker the hair will be.
3 – To make your rock witch’s hair tie the wrapped yarn together with a length of additional yarn, then slide it off the cardboard. Now you’ll have a loop of hair . Opposite the tie, cut through the loop to make two curtains of hair held together in the middle. see the photo above.
4 – Now glue the hair onto the painted rocks.
5 – To make the witch’s hat cut a rectangle hat brim from black cardstock or paper. Make sure it’s wider than your rock witch’s head. Then cut a paper triangle to make the pointed witch hat.
6 – Glue the hat rim onto the triangle. If you want to you can glue a band across the hat too. We cut a thin yellow rectangle and then a very small black rectangle to go in the middle, to make a buckle.
7 – Now glue the hats onto the witches’ heads. You can fold the top of the witch hat over if you like.
8 – Of course your rock witch will need a face so glue on some wiggle eyes and a pompom nose. Finish off your witch by drawing on a smile or a grimace!
