Five Minute Halloween Crafting – Corn Critters

Hold on to your corn husks! While you’re finishing off the last of the summer corn on the cob, save the husks for the Todd’s most clever new Halloween delight- Corn Critters. Our eight-year-old Zoe and the Todd show you how.


Five Minute Halloween Crafting – Corn Critters

You’ll need:

  • A glue gun
  • Craft “googly eyes”
  • Corn husks, spread flat with leaves radiating out to dry in the sun.

Admittedly, Zoe was more interested in eating the corn, but she gave her father the thumbs-up, so that’s participation. Sort of.

After mere minutes of easy crafting (and in my case, hot glue gun burns) viola! Your most clever new Halloween/Harvest decor – Corn Critters!

Easy Halloween Kid Crafts With Todd & Zoe – 10.8.18

Easy Halloween Kid Crafts With Todd & Zoe. The Todd’s “corn critters.” I’ve never seen anything like them! With bonus hot glue gun burns! (We couldn’t find any googly eyes anywhere here in Salt Lake City. Go figure. If you need some, you’ll find them along with all our other Halloween decor on our Amazon page here.)


They’re currently crawling up my living room wall, and there’s corn silk strewn throughout the house- but who cares? These suckers are remarkably sturdy- drying nicely in place and growing browner and more crispy through the holiday. I’ve never seen a decoration like this before! We have them in the Halloween Tree and currently infesting my bookcase. A little burn salve for The Todd, and viola! Perfection!
