My favorite holiday! I hand out candy on Halloween night. I started working on the gift baggies last night. A few pieces of good candy, a few little toys, and some little glow in the dark halloween tattoos.
I don't usually carve the pumpkins, I like cooking and baking with them after they've done their job as decoration. I'll paint a few. I'm thinking a black silhouette of a haunted house and I'll do the windows with a bright glow in the dark paint.
My indoor wreath is done. I just finished the ornament for my door. A shadow box from Goodwill, some glow sticks from the dollar store, and some cheesecloth I soaked in tea to discolor. A total of about 3.00 finished her up. I'm quite pleased with her!
I started my death shrouded skeletan, but he's not quite done yet. Here he is...not very impressive. He'll look better by the end of this weekend when I get some time to work on him. I picked up some wire coat hangers to get his arms outstretched...he's looking a little limp... I also need to stain the fabric strips under his cheesecloth. It's too white. Maybe rub a little 'grave dirt' on it too.
The pumpkin will go to work to set on my desk. The employees bring their kids in from 2pm-5pm for trick or treating so we had to decorate a little.
I picked up this guy (at least his suit, head, and shoes) and Goodwill. He's stuffed with bubble wrap from packages. I'll put the bowl of candy in his lap for the kids. I'll keep a bowl aside for the littler kids who might not want to get that close to him (a co worker suggested that, he said his girls would never go near that thing)... He's not quite done either. He needs more packing, better gloves, and I'll probably use a red sharpie to give him some nails/claws.
