i'm offically on the halloween band wagon.
hope you're ready cuz halloween's my bday and it gets a little crazy around here.
crazy meaning tons and tons of halloween crazy crafts & goodies so by the time halloween actually gets here,
you will be so sick of halloween you'll wanna shoot me.
and then turkey day and christmas fever starts and before you know it, it's valentine's day.
anyway, last week i went to world market.
i spent awhile looking at all the cool food in there,
not knowing what half of the stuff tastes like.
the stuff i did get there was quite tasty though but i am always tempted to make some kinda craft with it.
my mind got a little overwhelmed so i ended up
just getting a bag of fake apples.
you'd think i'd just stick them in a bowl or something but instead,
i made them into halloween crazies.
so crazy in fact, that now i am utterly tired and have decided to get some help with this post.
so here's my posting partner,
mrs. f. apple...
("whatever you got" meaning odds and ends and such...
hold on and you'll see)
they are supposed to be for real apples but i don't see anywhere on the package that says you can't use it
for fake ones. lol
(i used the knife for all the apple mouths, even if they were just slits,
and then went over them in paint pen.
you'll see on a few of them the cuts under the marker.)
ok let's move on.
now it's time to get that
"whatever you got" stuff and some tacky glue...
just push those tic tac babies up in that ole styrofoam apple with a little bit o'glue on the end.
repeat for a total of 6 legs.
or 8 if you want.
look something's flown into the room!
you having fun yet?
fancy eyes and nose you got there Mrs.F. Apple.
(oh and if you were wondering, i pushed a pink banana candy inside her mouth)
here's another beauty:
and someone else came in lookin' for a bite...
and possibly his mummy?
along with her green bodyguard.
don't ask about the frank furter thing-i think i'm delirious.
maybe i should be in ICU.
or it''s probably just a bad hair day.
ok guys, we got 2 more apples left in the dozen.
should we invite ghastly ghost?
mr. skely bones?
nah, we need a leader in this gang.
hmmm, maybe he's not so great cuz he's not a "true" pumpkin but rather an apple?!?...
woah! that's some hairdo!
i'm sure hubby Frankenstein would approve.
so there they all are.
good hair, bad hair, no hair.
hope it's a hair raising experience making and showing these to all ghouls and goblins in your life.
and to actually make sure no one picks these up
and eats 'em,
you can always stick them down with a removable glue dot like i did as you can see under Mama Mummy if you look real close.
and pick up a cutie patootie
witch cakestand at home goods for less than $20 before they're all gone too.
however way you choose to make them,
just remember to have fun and open up your mind to all kinds of crazies.
cuz crazy creepy cute is what i'm aiming for this halloween.
bad hair day or not.
