The last halloween craft... and, I thought I would share with you how to make these! I made these last year too! I was cleaning up my craft room and found more of these little peat pots. sooo.. thought Id give you a fun quick project to do!
obviously, starting with the 2&1/2 or 3 inch pots. cut into the shape you want.. or leave as is, if you want. I leave frankenstein with a flat top!
Paint the inside of the pots.
then paint the outsides. When they dry, paint on your faces! when your faces dry, paint a coat of glaze over them.
When they are dry, use a hole punch to punch holes on each side and add wire or pipecleaners for handles. Add some rick rack or ribbon trim at the bottom. Or, anything else you might want to add. Ive made them before with paper collars and little candy corn charms hanging. Ive also tied ribbons and trims from the handles on some others I've made.
Then for the finishing touch, add some battery operated votive candles and hang them on your halloween tree! You will love them. Arent they cute!?
Happy MOnday everyone and Happy Halloween!!
I dont know what this storm will be bringing to us, but we are in its path.. however, not as bad as those right along the coast in new jersey and nyc. We are right near lake ontario. It will get pretty ugly here I'm sure though. I worry about the wind and the old trees near my house. And, I hate the thought of losing power. I'm just praying for safety for everyone that is involved!
I shall return.. unless we lose power.
