Collected the kids snakes and spiders and put in different jars.
Added some flies on top.
They will all get label tags on them later when I'm in front of my computer.
This can be made SO much better with adding colored water in the jars as well, but I'm not as dedicated this year and it's supposed to be fast crafting.
I had two chairs standing against a wall,kind of boring...
Put over a white sheet, covered the painting with paper and me and TeeBee went wild.
Happened to have a witches pot and one of my lovely sister Iva Insane hair dressers head laying around and together they made a good match!
Hang the bloody nightgown that you have all made of course after watching my YouTube video Bloody Nightgown. *right?* on the new bench.
It looks OK.
The wicked witch of the.... crushed on the floor.
I've seen many wonderful versions of this - all better than mine, but I'm in a hurry!
Stockings of choise, I like striped.
A pair of shoes.
A pair of buckles on a stretch band.
Filling (a real chopped of leg/shirt/pillow filling, towel...)
I filled mine with newspaper (that's why she's got so ugly legs).
Put the parts together and squeeze them under something to make it look like she got smashed!
I cut out a puddle of blood in red paper.Dark red velvet would have been better but I was out of stock.
I've seen people who dressed their table "legs" in stockings and put a shoe at the end. That's super cool!
In Sweden we don't celebrate Halloween like in US for example. Often we just put a light on lost loved ones graves and had a bit of still evening.
But people here are catching up and we start to have Halloween parties a bit more like in the US, but it is still a bit "new".
Me and my friends have celebrated, or at least had scary masquerades for about 20 years, but it was not common back then and people looked very strange at us when we went out like scary clowns, ninjas,Death, Wednesday Addams, zombies,vampires and mummys. They stared more then usual *haha*
This year I will not attend a real Halloween party, just TeeBee 's Halloween Birthday party. But I'll try to make it cool.
2 black garbage bags and a shower curtain hang -flexible -thingy makes a cool entrance in under 5 minutes.
I just cut the bag open long sides, folded one end over the thingy put some tape on and dragged a scissor down and up as it was in place.
And now it looks like a slaughter house or a ghost house.
Took me longer to write this text then to make the curtain!
Best part: totally movable and reusable!
