Halloween Horrors!

Aren't these just too cool for words?

We are having a sleep-over on the 30th October and before the cubs get to watch DVD's, we are going to get them to complete their own little horror lamp.

These are very simple to make and thanks to Pack-o-Fun for the great idea!
Cut a 2 litre plastic cold drink bottle to the desired size.
Tear tissue paper into pieces and paste onto bottle. I used podge and then painted the podge over the tissue paper as well just to make sure it stuck fast!

Decorate as desired but I cut out huge eyes from black cardboard. Fun foam can also be used.

A number of items can be used for the hair but whilst at a scrapping class, I purchased some really great 'ribbon' which was ideal.

The handles are made from pipe cleaners.

Now that they are completed, a small torch is placed inside at the bottom which gives it that eerie effect.
To hold the torch upright, a small amount of sea-sand can be placed in the bottom but making sure it does not become too heavy.
Hope you have enjoyed this craft and if you have any ideas that you would like to share, please drop me an email.
Till next Time
Keep Crafting
