Little Wood Monsters

Frank, Cat, Boo and Jack ... join me in creating the cutest little wooden monsters in time to scare away the 2020 juju this Halloween!



Order your art kit here and follow along with the detailed instructions below.


The kit contains:


  • 4 wood shapes of varying sizes

  • paint in white, black, green and orange

  • 8 googly eyes

  • 1 gauze bandage

  • 1 sponge brush

  • 1 sponge wedge

  • raffia

  • stem

  • sandpaper


You will need:


Grab a snack. Get comfy. Unpack your kit and let's have some fun!


Sand down your blocks if you want them to be smoother.


Using the sponge wedge, paint the tallest block. You will not need added water for this. The thicker the paint, the better the coverage. Paint all the sides.




Without washing your brush, paint the smallest block in orange. The white streaks will give your pumpkin a natural look. Curve the strokes for a more Jack O'Lantern shape.




Wash your brush. Dry it and paint the middle sized block in green.

Wash and dry it again and paint the cat in black.

Let all your blocks dry.




Using the tip of your brush paint blunt, uneven black hair onto Frankie.




Paint the top, sides and back of his head as well. Frankenstein's monster has a blunt uneven hair cut, so no need to be perfect!





While Frankie dries, let's wrap up your mummy!

Remove the bandage and wrap it all around your mummy, from top to bottom and tuck the end in. You can use a spot of hot glue to secure the bandage ends, but there is enough friction for it to stay in place, even without glue.




Part the bandage at eye level.



You'll need enough room to stick the eyes under the gauze. You can always pull it back down afterwards.





Peek-a-boo!


Glue the eyes on with hot glue, craft or super glue. I prefer craft glue, especially with young kids, because fingers won't get burnt.




And here you have BOO! Isn't he adorable?




Let's give Frankie some eyes! Here are some ideas for eye placement. Isn't it funny how his expression is so different, depending on where his eyes are placed? Where will you stick yours?





Using a sharpie. draw in a crocked smile and a big scar.



Dip the tip of the wedge into some white paint t color his tooth white.




And here is Frankenstein's creation! You can use some sandpaper to distress his edges, to make him look a little vintage.




Give your black car some eyes. You pick where you want them to be!




Tie the raffia bow onto your cat. You can make it a tall bow around the ears for a stylish girl cat.




Or you can tie the bow under the eyes to look like a collar and whiskers.





Now you have Frank, Cat and Boo!




Attach the stem to the top of your pumpkin with hot glue.




Attach Jack's eyes. Again, it's fun to play around with where the eyes will go. They can be high, low, far, close, straight or angled. So many options!





Using the sharpie, draw a smile onto your Jack O'Lantern. You can go with a scary smile, a frown or a toothy grin. Practice on paper if you are unsure.




Using the tip of the sponge wedge, color in any teeth if you'd like to.





And there they are! All ready to scare he blues away!




Display them with pride! I hope you had fun creating this cute crowd of Halloween monsters with me. Please share photos of your set with me via email or on social media with tag @threeandme or #threeandme



Have a boo-tiful Halloween!

Had the most fun tonight with an amazing instructor and many wonderful friends! Three & Me out did themselves with beautiful presentation and amazing craft that I am excited to display in my home! I look forward to another opportunity to craft with Three & Me in the future!

What an amazing experience! Claire is an incredible instructor and makes these projects so fun and truly easy for those like me who are not artsy! She is extremely organized and everything is so well thought out and ready in advance. I can hardly wait to take more classes in the future. I would highly recommend Three & Me!

I just went to my first Three & Me workshop. It was a wonderful experience. Claire is a warm hostess and an excellent instructor. Making everyone feel engaged and successful. The materials are top notch and every detail is well thought out. It’s a great escape for a personal creative moment or a fun way to connect with friends and family while expressing your inner artist.

Such a fun string art class tonight! Claire is a wonderful instructor and everything was so beautiful; the display, the art, the examples, the supplies, the snacks! So fun!

This is truly a fun night out! Claire's instruction is helpful, humorous and fun! I love how she allowed us options to be creative and put our own twist on our projects. There is a lot of attention to detail with the set-up, supplies and refreshments which did not go unnoticed.  I can't wait for the next project!

What a fun evening! Claire has thought of every detail and guides you step by step through the whole process! She is such an encourager and makes you feel like you have just made a masterpiece! I highly recommend her classes! I can't wait to take another one!

I had such a fun evening! Three & Me had everything presented beautifully and organized in a way that made it easy to follow along for those of us that aren't necessarily crafters by nature! Thank you for a fun night!

I craft a lot at home, but doing crafts in a class with friends is so much better. THREE & ME makes it so easy to do the things I am interested in, without having to find the supplies and figure out how to do it on my own. I've just booked my next ladies night with Claire! I can't wait. 

Vancouver, WA

Tonight, a bunch of lucky ladies got to craft along side one of the very best. Claire's heart, is hands done one of the very best and those of us who were there got to create something amazing that we will proudly display in our homes. Many laughs and much fun was had by all. I highly recommend one of Three & Me classes to anyone in the area! Spread kindness around like confetti!!

Art is not my strength. I don't have a creative bone in my body. So I came to a workshop because my friend made me... and I made something I now love. I was expecting to sit and watch, but landed up getting fully involved! My husband and kids don't believe that I made it myself. I'm coming again and I'm bringing my sister... she's even worse at crafts than me.
