  1. Halloween Crafts
    Sorry, for the picture quality. I tried to get decent ones but it was a challenge. Did this craft in the public library last October. Pre-painted wood candlesticks with black gel stain then provided patrons with clear glass ornaments and Halloween images printed onto transparency paper...
  2. General Halloween
    I am jumping on the bandwagon to give out small toys with the full size bars this year. I have already collected mini Play-Doh cans, mini stencils & erasers (will get pencils to go with them) and some Hot Wheels. I wanted to put them into little paper treat sacks - the flat "vintage style" (not...

    Hi, I've been the proud owner of a Don Post Full Moon mask for many years, and it has been stored in my closet for about 9 years now. I had kept it dry, stuffed with tissue to hold its form, wrapped in a plastic bag, inside of its cardboard box. Recently, I got a styrofoam head and I wanted to...

    Just ordered the Peanuts cutouts from Oriental Trading. What is the best way to hang them on walls? Hole punch the center and hang on a nail? Hole punch and put a ribbon through? Grommet? My mom would always tape hers up, but they would often fall down, and the tape takes some of the color off...

    The last time I made something out of paper mache was in the fourth grade, so I am beyond rusty. However, we love the look of props created with paper mache and we're going to increase the number of projects that use it going forward. But there in lies the tale. I'm the one who's going to be...

    I picked up a skeleton from Spririt the other day, but it is way too cute for my yard. I am looking into converting him into a groundbreaker and would like him to have a greyish corpse look to him similar to the below pictures. I've seen some posts about using plastic wrap and a heat gun to...

  13. Halloween Props
    Hi everybody! A while ago, my wife asked me if I could make a replica of the spellbook from the movie "Hocus Pocus". It shouldn't be just a prop, it also should be an actual sketchbook. I made a video of the entire build process, and managed to edit it into a 20-minute video: I used a kraft...
