Did you know that 34 percent of people attend or throw a Halloween party every year? Americans of all ages celebrate the mystery of Halloween and if you are planning to be one of those then I have some fun do-it-yourself Halloween tableware for you. An incredibly easy Frankenstein and a little more advance but still really easy to create scarecrow candy dish.
First I will start with the super easy to make Frankenstein candy dish.
What you will need!
Empty Paint Can (you can buy them new at your local home improvement store)
Green Spray Paint
Black and White Craft Paint
As I said this one is as simple as simple gets.
All you need to do is tape off the handle portion and then spray your paint can with Frankenstein green paint and then once you have allowed it to dry paint on his hair, face, scars, etc. You can either copy the face I created or create your own. However you choose to make him look will be awesome too.
Next is the scarecrow candy dish. I am absolutely if love with the way this one turned out. He is so cute!!
What you will need!
(1) 4 inch terra cotta pot and saucer
(4) 1 inch small terra cotta pots
Glass bowl (this is a candle holder)
Craft Paint and Brushes
- First you will want to paint on the scarecrow’s overalls. I traced mine on with a pencil before painting so that I would have it just the way I wanted. I chose to leave his top just the terra cotta color but you could paint a cute plaid top as well. I also went ahead and used a white paint pen to create the thread detail and pocket to the overalls. I didn’t paint the hat (saucer) either but if you want to paint it a tan color for a straw hat you can go ahead and do that as well
- While the overalls were drying I attached 2 of the 1 inch terra cotta pots together to create an arm using hot glue. Do this again for the second arm.
- Once the overalls are dry you can now attach the arms to the body, once again using hot glue. Allow the arms to set and then attach some raffia into the insides of the arms.
- Next hot glue some raffia on the top of the terra cotta pot. Don’t worry about trimming it up, you can do that at the end.
- Once you have enough raffia to your liking glue on the glass bowl and paint on his face.
- The last part is gluing some raffia on to the underside of the saucer to create the hat. I added a little flower but that is optional. Embellish however you see fit. You could also attach a wooden knob to make the hat easier to pick up.
- Trim up the raffia to your liking and your done.
