D.I.Y. Dollar Store Crafting...Mixing It Up With The Monster Mash...A Cute Tute

I took a little break from my sketching yesterday afternoon with a trip to my local Dollar Store.  I had to pick up a few party supplies and while I was there got inspired to create a quick and easy craft project with a do-it-yourself tute...cute!
So if you're looking for some Sweet Saturday fun...monsters can be sweet,'s what you need to make a sassy, snarly or SWEET monster!
  1. A Micro-fiber sponge - available in several fun "popping" colors
  2. Silly eyes - you can pick up a bag full...enough for several monsters and other creatures too!
  3. A bag of colorful'll definitely have leftovers
  4. A package of bright colored felt squares...and again enough leftover for crafting and creating!
  5. Scissors
  6. Glue - I used a hot glue gun, but if you have little ones the white glue will work too!
Ready to do the Monster Mash?
"Easy peasy" and all for a little cash!
Here's the step by step...ready, set, prep!
