Recycled Halloween Party Favors

Posted on October 16, 2009

Recycled Halloween Party CupHere is one more recycled Halloween craft project. It uses a yogurt cup and yarn to create a cute party favor. This is a perfect kid’s craft project as they can decorate the cup for Halloween. I cut construction paper eyes and a mouth to decorate my treat cup. Let your kid’s have fun with this and decorate the cups using yarn and different colored construction paper.

I used regular yarn to crochet this cup holder and the free pattern is found below. If you’d like to use vcr tape with yarn, here is that free pattern link. VCR Tape Halloween Cup yogurt cup
