D Va Happy Halloween
Vampires Vampire masks with fangs can be easily made with paper plates. More imposing ornamental life size vampires however can be made out of coat hangers and black garbage bags. UFO UFOs are not typical Halloween figures but stories about alien abductions sure make scary Halloween tales. Make UFOs out of paper plates that you can hang from the ceiling. You might also want to complement the ships with cookies shaped like stereotypical aliens instead of ginger bread men. Worms Worms in cans can be made of brown crepe paper. They can seem yuckier to the touch though if you use gummy candies and cooked spaghetti. Ghosts Just like spiders ghosts can also have a lot of variations. You can make ghost Halloween arts and crafts for kids made of socks packing foam old cloths crepe paper helium filled balloons white painted jars tissue and clay. The Mummy For a mummified figure you can wrap a jar with tissue paper or gauze.
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 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.
Is it that life imitates art? Or that art imitates art? It seems that whichever is the case licensed costumes for Halloween follow blockbuster movies. Like many toys books and other consumer goods Halloween costumes often style themselves after movie characters. Some manufacturers choose to carry licensed Halloween costumes; others choose to create "knockoffs" that closely resemble the licensed products without paying the licensing fees... but they are not allowed to use the characters names on their costumes. For the past few years Pirates of the Caribbean (POTC) costumes have been a huge success. With three big pirate movies there have been six major characters to create: Captain Jack Sparrow costumes Elizabeth Swann costumes William Turner costumes Hector Barbossa costumes Davy Jones costumes and Tia Dalma costumes. With everything from Elizabeth Swann s Aztec gold necklace to Jack Sparrow s rings and Barbossa s sword pirate costumes offer many styles sizes and choices for Halloween parties and contests. In addition to licensed Pirates costumes there are numerous unlicensed pirate costumes for women and men and even kid s pirate costumes. These are likely to cost a little less that an official Jack Sparrow Halloween costume but may be just as attractive and well-built. Another perennial favorite: Spiderman costumes. Again with three hit movies the webslinger is available as adult Spiderman costumes kids Spiderman costumes and even a Spidergirl costume. "Spiderman costumes have been one of our best sellers for four years in a row " said James Burke co-owner of SpookShop.com. "My sons both have Spiderman costumes and wear them as pajamas and even during the day. They have each gone through two sizes already." Other hits such as The Simpsons movie are likely to bring more interest to Simpsons costumes. "We carry Simpsons masks and costumes but expect manufacturers to add more Simpsons Halloween costumes to what they currently offer " Burke said.
