the quicker the better and NO running to the store.
First junk up your table with a bunch of supplies, here's what I used:
- Blank card & envelope
- Gauze Sponges (you could use strips of paper)
- Spray Adhesive
- Halloween Colored Cardstock
- glue dot tape
- circle punch stamps
Cut your gauze or paper into strips. I made 2 cards, 1 white mummy and 1 dingy mummy. To ink the strips I rolled the gauze and dabbed the rolled up edge in the ink.
To make eyes, use different size punches or anything to draw circles and cut out. I used orange, black and white cardstock.
Take your card outside with your fancy spray board and cover the front with spray adhesive.
- Pickle Jar
- Ace Bandage
- Google Eyes or make your own like me with pipe cleaners and buttons.
- Hot glue gun
- Candle (preferably a battery operated one)
Add a dab of hot glue and attach one end of ace bandage. Start wrap That's it - you're done! Start wrapping the jar all cattywampus. The velcro end of the wrap with self adhere when you get to the end.
I looked everywhere for my google-eyes that I've had for years and of course couldn't find them. Ugghh. So I created my own ghostly eyes by making a circle with black pipe cleaners and adding some pearly white buttons to the front. With a dab of glue stick them on the front and add a candle inside. Cute hun?
To see more take a look at my sidebar. I'd love you to leave a comment and let me know what you've been working on.
Have a frightfully fun time TREAT-OR-TREATING with your little ones. Don't forget to be careful watching for little ghost and goblins in the streets.
