Here it is, the sister post to this one! Today I’ll be showing you the non-edible Halloween crafts we did this year!
The first one is my favorite: Vampire Pumpkins!
I pinned this awhile back, and gave it a go this year while my bestie Cynthia was visiting.
Her vamps were a little more flamboyant.
We bought the vampire teeth at a party store, for 99 cents a pair, and the pumpkins we found at Michaels. We used the little carving knives from a pumpkin carving kit, and carved out a small section for the teeth. Once that was done, all we had to do was insert the teeth and add some eyes! I used red straight pins for my eyes.
The thing I like best about this craft is that I can easily store these little guys and bring them out again every year!
The next thing we did was what everybody and their mom also did:
I love the footprint ghosts, because if we do it every year, we can see how the kids have grown! I wrote the kids’ names and the year in small lettering along the side of the “ghosts.” Apparently Carter has a major arch, and Vanessa is flat footed!
And the last thing we did was, of course, pumpkin carving!
Carter got these two little ones, and he wanted one to be sad and one to be happy. Or maybe he said good and bad. I’m not sure, but we ended up making one sad and one mean. He chose the shapes, and I did the carving.
What do you think? I won a pumpkin carving contest with it, at our Trunk-Or-Treat! Full disclosure, nobody else entered. But hey, I got a $5 Sonic gift card! I will enjoy some cheesy tots because of that pumpkin. Super full disclosure, this is the second time I’ve won a pumpkin carving contest where I was the only entrant. Where my pumpkin-carvers at?!
