Ralph Masiellos Halloween Drawing Book
You might want to use pliers. Braid them together and make them into a wreath/circle by twisting the top hooks together. Next tear or cut pieces of paper... about a foot long and wide. Pinch the paper strips in the middle and crunch it up as if you were making a flower. Tuck the "paper flowers" into the little holes in the braided wires and pull tight. Fill up your wreath to fullness! Spray paint it! About three coats of paint is good with about 50 minutes drying time in between. Use the kind of spray paint that holds up outside (in case of rain). Please do the spray painting outside or in a well ventilated room. Cover tables with those inexpensive plastic tablecloths. When the paint is good and dry attach the decorations with the hot (low temp is fine) glue gun. Just be careful not to burn yourself. Adults and older kids should be the glue gunners. You are done! Hang it up on your front door maybe with an orange light aimed at it.
With the white on top make angled cuts through the clay. You are trying to make triangular shaped pieces with the white being at the small tip and the yellow at the wider bottom. 3. Now to give them a more finished look smooth and round the edges. Now the candy corn is finished. Before you bake them decide if you are going to leave them as plain candy corn or if you would like to turn them into buttons earrings or maybe a necklace pendant. 4. To make buttons just poke two holes in the middle of the orange clay. Now the buttons are ready to bake. To make earrings you will need eye pins and earring hooks. Poke the eye pins straight down from the top of the candy corn. Then press the clay around the pin so it will hold. Now the earrings are ready to bake. To finish your earrings attach the earring hooks.
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.
Leave the string thread long on the legs. Make two legs alike and leave to one side to dry. Skeletons Shoulder Blade Take the main skeleton part with the spoon and ribs and place it face down on the table. Just above the ribs and still leaving the skeleton a neck glue the skeleton s shoulders to the spoon handle. (Tapered ends to the spoon) To support the shoulders make some shoulder blades in the same way as you made the ribs and glue them to the shoulder pieces and over the spoon. Leave to dry. Skeletons Pelvis To make the skeleton s pelvis bone you firstly need to make three ribs. Glue the ribs to the back of the main part just above the end of the spoon handle. Don t leave any gaps between the rib like parts of the pelvis. Leave these parts to dry before continuing. Turn the skeleton over.
