I made these monster cut outs for photo props at my son’s monster themed birthday party. As a bonus the monster cut outs also served as a bean bag toss game. I only had nap times to work on these so they took a few days to make. Also, I only had a hand saw to cut the holes. I imagine it would have gone much quicker if I had a jigsaw.
What You Need To Make Monster Cut Outs
Paint / Brushes
Saw (preferably a jigsaw)
hot glue gun
anything you want to decorate the monster cut out with
(popsicle sticks, googly eyes, feathers, pom poms, et cetera)
I started by painting each of the plywood pieces a solid yellow color. I used a lighter color so whatever I painted on top would show up okay. Then I used a large bowl to trace a circle where I wanted the cut out to be. After that I traced out the monsters, painted and decorated them. To make the hole for the monster cut outs I used a drill to make some holes and finished with a hand saw. I used sandpaper to smooth all around the holes so no one got splinters. I had some scrap 2x4s laying around I drilled into the bottom of the monster cut outs to make them stand.
This was a fun project to work on while my kid napped. The monster cut outs were a great addition to the monster themed birthday party and I loved that they were a fun bean bag toss game too.
