I love Blobby from Hotel Transylvania and so do my kids. I also love Halloween. So I figure, why not combine the two? That’s how I came up with this adorable life-size lawn decoration that will make your Halloween even spookier.
So, every year the Ashton Gardens at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi, Utah holds a scarecrow festival for the general public to participate.. Last year, I did a witch but this year I wanted to submit something a little bit more unique. So I came up with Blobby and his son from Hotel Transylvania 3 which came out earlier this summer. Here’s how you can make your own.
Get your Blobby supplies
If you’re looking for a cost-effective Halloween decoration, this isn’t it. But it will definitely be worth it. From start to finish, this entire project cost me about $35, mostly because I spent $30 on bright green pool noodles. Ha ha. Here’s what you’ll need:
You’ll also need to print some eyes for Blobby and his son. Just click on the link below.
I bought all of my pool noodles at Dollar Tree all the way back in April because by the time September rolled around, they were completely sold out.
Start cutting and gluing
To make your Blobby, you just have to make large circles out of pool noodles that get progressively smaller and smaller. The first circle–the largest one–should be about 40 inches wide.
The trickiest part is holding the pool noodles together tightly after applying the hot glue. If the glue is not completely cooled before you let go, it will come apart. I made each individual circle and then glued them all together. I had ten rings total.
Finishing Bobby’s head was the hardest part. I ended up cutting pool noodles, bending and gluing across the top. Then I filled in the gaps with the scraps.
Blobby just wouldn’t be as cute without his cute sidekick son. It took about three pool noodles to finish this little guy. The photo is pretty self explanatory. Then just print the eyes (PDF file below) and hot glue them.
I LOVE the way these turned out. I can’t wait to put them in my front yard for Halloween!
You can put Blobby and son on your front lawn or even on your porch to make for a very festive and fun Halloween.
