If you are thinking of having a kids Halloween party, here is a idea for a noisemaker. What would a party be without noise, right?
12 x 12 inch dowel
Black paint/green craft foam/orange plates
Marking pen /hole punch/yarn/glue gun
Dry beans and a jingle bell
1. Paint the dowel black
2.Trace a leaf pattern onto the green craft foam, and cut out
3.Cut slits in the center of the leaves
4.Using the photograph as a guide, draw a face onto the flat side on one plate with a black marker
5.Hold the face plate and a plain plate with rims together
6.Using a hole punch,evenly space holes around the rims of both plates
7.Place a few dry beans and a few jingle bells in the gap between the plates and lay the dowel through the center of the plates,allowing a short end to stick out of the top for a pumpkin stem and a large amount of stick out the bottom for a handle.
8.Lace yarn through the holes to hold two plates together
9.Place leaves on the dowel through the slits and hot glue in place.
