spooky serving spoons for halloween

well october is officially here.
and so are the gajillion spooky treats 
in blogland, magazines, and stores. 
ahh the glory of it all!

the time when people craft ghosts out of marshmallows, 
turn veggie plates into skeletons, 
and chocolate pies into graveyards.
ahh! the glory of it all!

but hey wait a sec, if someone's gonna go through all the trouble (which to me is no trouble at all, but rather a blast) to make a halloween spooky dish or treat, 
why not go 100%? 

and by that i mean, do this:
all you need are 2 things.

and here we go into a massive pictorial tute that would take most bloggers a few pics to make.
:>P
guess i like a lotta pics?
anyway, here goes:
i incorporated the hole in the spoon into the face.

no worries about the fuzziness of the paint pen on the wood.
it actually gives it character in some of the spoons that you'll see in a sec.
so you wanna see more?

looks like he's gonna go get you more...

so hey,



are you getting the theme of these serving spoons yet?
i wrote something silly on them about food.
that vampire's nose is the spoon's hole that didn't quite get punched out at the spoon factory so i just went with making the hole a nose.

so here's a few more:

oh gosh that monster needs a pedicure.
haha
i drew the spooks to go all the way around the spoon handles.
i plan to use these for my halloween bash i throw every year.
maybe i'll make some dracula pasta (whatever that is) or witch's brew to match the spoons.
would that be over-the-top overkill?
if i did that i guess i would have to make 
monster mash potatoes?...

but who the heck eats mash potatoes at a halloween party?
i mean, eyeball truffles, vampire teeth apples, 
and pretzel bones make perfect sense.
but not mash potatoes.
halloween is weird.
maybe that's why it's my birthday?

oh hey! i'm up for a rockstar? check this out and vote if you please for my pom pom spider placemats?! :)
