This is the mummy pumpkin I made. Super simple! No carving needed! I sprayed the entire pumpkin with spray adhesive, cut cheesecloths into strips and wrapped away. The BIG googly eyes are from Michael's Arts and Crafts (love this store!) My fingers got so sticky from the constant gluing but it was so fun to make. And isn't it adorable?!?
Josue used a simple drill and just drilled holes into this pumpkin using different sized drill bits.
Ping, another member of our crew, carved our store name onto this pumpkin and also added the bloody effect with a red paint. Pretty cool!
|Sugar skull pumpkin|
Sugar skull carving from Josue also. These skulls are so popular. I see them on everything from earrings to cookies to t-shirts.
|Nightmare before Christmas pumpkin|
Push pins into the pumpkin. Another no carve!
|Scary cheesecloth ghost|
Just throw a piece of cheesecloth over a small white bucket and you have a SCARY ghost!
This wreath is made from foam insulation covered with cheesecloth and creepy spiders.
And of course, we had our Halloween potluck. I saw this apple teeth from Pinterest. I sectioned an apple and used almond slivers as the teeth.
Witches finger pretzels! These were so yummy! Just melt some chocolate chips, dip pretzels sticks in, and place almond slices on tips before the chocolate cools so it'll stick. Looks pretty good huh?!?
Sam, my hubby, made this pot of intestines from cooked ribs, sausages, and red bell pepper as the heart. Tasted delicious!
And these were my favorite: the murdered bloody cupcakes! Red frosting from a tube was swiveled with a toothpick over the white frosting and a candy knife was stabbed into the middle.
Gosh I love Halloween!
Til next time, keep making, keep creating, keep doing!
