Instructions for Halloween Craft

1. Take one sheet of your paper card stock, preferably about 8 inches square.

If it’s already a square shape, you’re good to go. If not, trim one of the sides to make the card stock into one.

2. Fold one corner across the center as shown, making a point at the bottom of the paper.


3. Fold the other corner over the fold and secure it down using the glue stick.


4. Fold up the pointed tip and secure it down using the glue stick or a sticker.


5. Decorate with your Halloween stickers and have fun!

My 5yo made this yellow paper cup. Quite the little artist. He felt so proud lining up the candy corn stickers.
