I made these bowling pins out of empty 24 oz. pop bottles. I used clear and green bottles. Any sized bottle will work. Weigh them down with some gravel so they're a little harder to knock down. I used old fish tank gravel.
Here's what you'll need to make them:
Hot glue on bottle items listed by character.
Use a real pumpkin, squash, or gourd for the bowling ball. The bumps and lumps make it harder to knock down the pins.

Those are so cool. Thanks for sharing.
I did something similar one year for an indoor Safe Trick or Treat. I didn't get that crafty, though--those look great! I just put some candy corn in the bottom of the pop bottles (made sure they were dry first) and used a foam ball for the bowling ball. It was a great hit with the kids.
Yes, I am running wayyyyyy behind. Sorry about that. I wanted to tell you that those are just sooo cute. I will be passing this on to friends who have little ones and sometimes need indoor or at least inexpensive games. Thanks for sharing.
