As said creativity is the master of all arts. Making candy corn out of polymer clay is quite easy and it is an excellent project for just about any age group. These little polymer clay candy corns are so cute and are great for adding to all sorts of decorations and other things. You could use them to embellish things like frames magnets candles or even for adding to scrapbooking pages. Supply List: - Polymer clay (yellow orange white) - I normally use the Sculpey brand Clear acrylic sealer (optional) Instructions: 1. Warm up each color of clay by rolling and kneading it until it feels soft. Now roll each color out until it s about 1/4" thick. Now press the three rolls together with white on top orange in the middle and yellow on the bottom. 2. Find a thin sharp edge such as a thin piece of cardboard to use to slice through the clay.
You need a white sheet as per the size of the bush a newspaper permanent black magic marker or fabric paint and cloth pins. The idea is to make a ghost like figure by painting a ghost on the white paper folding the white sheet balancing the sheet with the newspaper and securing the figure with the help of clothespins. Sounds really simple but it is definitely going to scare the passerby. Idea #2 - The other idea for Halloween is to make your house look very festive and very scary both the inside and the outside. I will show you how to get a scary path way. You will need lots of brown lunch bags orange paint sand and tea light or votive candle. Paint the bags orange in color and cut it out to make a scary face of a pumpkin. Fill half of the pumpkin face with sand and put a candle in it and light it.
Forth attach the background to a support with clear tacky glue or a glue stick. Any flat solid surface that will not warp is acceptable. Use a board a canvas stretcher a paper mache or wooden plaque a playing card or perhaps a tag. It s also possible to produce a shadow box through an empty candy jar or shallow box. Fifth cut out pictures. Cut witch hats from black paper designed paper or newsprint. Paste image to the background and affix the witch hat. Clip words and phrases with a Halloween or spooky theme from old books or newspapers. Stick them to the collage. Sixth put some extra in your collage artwork like cut outs from classic or contemporary Halloween greeting cards worn out jewelry and buttons scrabble tiles container lids with words stamped on them fibers and beads.
Then use a witch s hat for the covered scarecrow head. Punch a hole in the hat where the hook of the hanger can go through. Hang the body over windows doors or cabinet handles. For cobwebs you can use cottons which you can spread all over the place. Cotton cobwebs is great for any theme you may have in mind. You can also use washable paint on your windows-you can either use spooking green all over or apply splashes of red for "blood". Replace your white bulbs with black orange or red ones bulbs for an eerie lighting effect. You can also cover lamps with colored cloth or netting for eerie shadows. Halloween is a time when one can experiment with creative craft ideas to make wonderful decorations for the house. It is an opportunity to dabble in the wonderful world of art and craft.
