How to Draw a Portrait with Moving Eyes Halloween Crafts

What you need:

  • template
  • paper
  • drag
  • glue
  • Optional color supplies

Step-by-step instructions

Print out the form. For a portrait, you will need a box template.

…and a Halloween monster portrait.

If your children are drawing black and white portraits, have them color them before assembling the piece.

Cut out the monster shape (cut along the outer border).

Cut out circles where the eyes are. Punch a small hole in the center of each circle and cut out with scissors.

Cut out the box template.

Also cut out the two marked circles on the template, just like you did with the circles on the monster image.

Make folds along the black dashed lines.

Make the folds nice and sharp, this will make assembling the box easier.

Assemble the box. The two black dots should be inside the box.

Apply glue inside the areas that have the word glue on them.

Assemble the box.

Let the glue set before you continue to the final step of this project.

The last thing to do is paste the monster portrait on the box.

Apply glue to the back of the portrait (or on the box).

Stick the portrait onto the box, making sure you align the holes on the box and on the portrait.

All has been done! You’ve finished your Halloween portrait with moving eyes. Move left, right, up and down and observe eye movements.
