creepy things

I've never really been into Halloween decorating or celebrating, but Daisy LOVES all things creepy and scary and has talked about Halloween for the last year. Seriously nonstop, so it's been a blast finding things that we can make or do. The images are mostly from Woman's Day special interest magazine, "Halloween Celebrations" or from assorted Martha Stewart Halloween magazines I have. If you have any fun Halloween ideas or traditions, I'd love to hear about them. I thought these were the funniest werewolf cupcakes. I've seen some really scary ones, but these just looks so goofy and hairy and adorable. Who could resiste a werewolf cupcake like this? Have you seen Martha Stewart's amazing creepcakes? I think they first debuted in 2004 or 2005. They are amazing. She does all kinds. Aliens, spiders, brains, mummies, skeletons. Maybe next year. . .

hag bags from woman's day

Daisy calls these "gross" bags, but she loves them anyway. All you do is buy those cheapish stretchy gloves in whatever colors you want and decorate them with painted press-on nails. With strong fabric glue, attach some wide black grosgrain ribbon for the handle, and a strip of marabou or feather boa for the cuff. The fingers and hands are lumpy from being filled with candy. Fun little craft for little people.
