DIY Halloween Craft Tubes

Kids Halloween Craft Tube Crafts by U Create

Need a fun Halloween craft for a party or school activity? Grab some cardboard tubes and paint – but wait this is the easiest, cleanest paint you’ll find for kiddos!

Let’s talk about Kwik Stix for a second.

I like to think of them as “glue stick-like”, but in a paint form! These paints dry in 90 seconds and you don’t have to worry about spilling water cups or using paint brushes! I’m all about making a creative mess, but sometimes it’s just fun to have a simple craft for the kids that’s a cinch to clean up!

They are non-toxic and very safe to use, too! Alright, let me show you what my 8 year old daughter made using them…

Halloween Kwik Stix Craft by U Create



  • Kwik Stix (I used the classic set)
  • Craft Tubes – you can use any cardboard tube to do this craft!
  • googly eyes
  • optional foam pieces or construction paper for accents

Kwik Stix Halloween Craft

She decided to make a frankenstein first and slapped some little googly eyes on for a funny face!

She had so much fun creating with these paints and made a ghost, pumpkin, and bat, too!

Next, she wants to make a turkey for fall!

We’ve also used these on canvases and poster board and they go on smoothly and stay on great!

Where to find them? Kwik Stix are now available at Michaels! You can find the classic 12 pack of Kwik Stix and the 6 pack of metalix and neon.

Happy creating!
