there are a ton of halloween treats floating on
the blogosphere these days.
but halloween is like over 40 days away.
so are people eating mummified cookies and
graveyard pudding cups already?
anyway, the next couple of halloween posts i'll have will be focused more on crafts unless i come up with something that i can freeze and not taste rotten by the time halloween day actually comes.
and speaking of seeing,
someone's lookin' at you right now!
ok so maybe not someone,
but there sure are a lot of eyes up there.
target AGAIN? sigh...
that's a piece of paper you see in that tray i guess
as a demo of how you can use it.
but then again some folks may think i'm weird sticking eyeballs all around it.
nevertheless, here's how it went.
that thing under the eyeball is the cover for the E-6000 glue.
when you use the glue you have to hold the eyeball in place til it dries a little.
you could hot glue the eyeballs on but i wanted something stronger so they don't
pop out of the socket fall off the tray with use.
this is a chalk tray so you gotta use chalk markers for the markers to show up on the tray.
i got mine here on amazon and looooooove them!
and there you have it.
you can leave it alone as is, but i felt like it needed some height in order for the faces to be seen, especially when it sits on a table and everyone sees it from the top.
so i happen to be at ross, which is like a glorified garage sale store to me in some ways, and you really have to look to find good buys.
like when i saw these:
it was like it was meant to be!
and these babies are HEAVY too so i joined the ravens with the eyeballs and my craft was done.
(i made another tray too so you'll have to see how that one looks at the next post.)
so now all ya gotta do is place your halloween treats on it and you're good to go.
just beware there are monsters that may snatch
a goodie or two from it...
well, if i make some now they will probably be stale by the time the 31st comes, so i'll gladly hand those to the monsters myself. :>P
