Boogie Monsters | Pipe Cleaner Crafts

Boogie Monsters

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

These zany desktop dancers have the "cents" to stand on their own two feet.


  • Tacky glue
  • 3 (12-inch) pipe cleaners
  • 2 medium pom-poms (ours were 1 1/2 inches in diameter)
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Felt
  • Tiny pom-pom
  • Wooden skewer
  • Feather
  • Poster tack
  • 2 pennies
  • 2 penny-size buttons


Glue a 7-inch length of pipe cleaner between the pom-poms for arms. Let the glue dry.

For legs, fold a 9-inch pipe cleaner length in half and glue the fold to the bottom of the lower pom-pom.

Attach each googly eye to a small felt circle, then glue the eyes, felt ears, and a tiny pom-pom nose to the face.

For each horn, coil a 4-inch pipe cleaner length around the skewer, then glue the horn onto the head. Fold the ends of each arm to form hands. Glue the feather tail in place.

Step 5 - Boogie Monsters

Add a foot to each leg by using a small ball of poster tack to sandwich each end between a button and a penny, as shown.
