Do your kids love to craft? Decoupage is so easy and forgiving.
Decoupage crafts are perfect for kids! What kid doesn’t have fun gluing pieces of paper to stuff? Kids really can’t mess up decoupaging the paper to the can.
Our neighbors put up their Halloween decorations. Their festive holiday decor always sparks my kids creativity. They wanted more Halloween decorations so we started brainstorming some fun crafts. We decided that we wanted to do a fun and easy Halloween decoupage craft.
I save Spam cans because I like the shape almost as much as I like Spam. (I know…it’s not healthy at all.)
Seriously, Filipino’s love Spam. Ask a Filipino if they’ve ever had Spam, rice, and eggs and I bet you they have–and they love it.
I usually have a relatively clean diet but every once in a while my Filipino roots take control of me and I end up having spam after midnight. Thank goodness this only happens a couple times a year to me.
The shape of the can is perfect for crafting. The blockish shape fit my idea for a Halloween decoupage craft project much better than a traditional tin can would.

Tear up pieces of green construction paper. I love how the glued together pieces of paper fit the Frankenstein story. The cobbled together monster face perfectly lends itself to the patchwork decoupage look.
I was going to cut out his facial features out of black construction paper but then remembered that I had Halloween stickers. The stickers upped the “easy” quotient considerably.
Place the stickers onto one side of the Frankenstein head.
We almost stopped here but something was missing. After a little input from the kids, I agreed that he needed “those metal things on his neck.” I simply raided my never used sewing box and super glued these bobbins to the side of the can. It was the perfect touch!
This little guy would be a cute way to store and display black pencils. This is our first Halloween decoupage craft. What do you think?
We decided to give him some licorice hair and use it for a Halloween party decoration. What would you put in it?
I ate a lot of Spam growing up. This craft is super cute and creative! I love repurposing stuff for crafts. Love the bobbins! Thanks for linking this up at Made for Kids link party!
I’m from Minnesota, so I knew that was a Spam can right away! You know the Spam Museum is in Minnesota, right?
Anyway, this is so cute! I need to make a couple of these! I love how simple it is!
