How cute are these little monsters! They were sent over by Whitney over at Diary of a Preppy Mom. My favorite part about this one is that she used scraps around the house. A project that you don't buy anything for is my kind of project!
Here are their close-ups! :)
The country pumpkin!
The Muslin Mummy.
How cute spooky are these???
I only used things I had on hand - scrap wood, paint, scrap fabric, felt, bolts!
I love quick, free & cute projects like this!!
Want to make your own??
What you need:
Muslin, Green Fabric, Felt
Long green ribbon *for stem*
Bolts (or similar) for Frankenstein's neck
Mod Podge and Hot Glue.
Gather your scraps together!
My longest one is about 2 feet. The pumpkin measures about 8", the Mummy 12" and frankenstein 14".
I didn't have long scraps - so I glued together squares ...
upright for Frankenstein & stacked for the Pumpkin.
3. Rip strips of Fabric (about 1" wide) for the Muslin. Mine were anywhere from 8"-20".
3. Wrap the Muslin around and tie in the back.
4. Keep tying the muslin strips.
5. Print out eyes (or use googley eyes)
Until he looks like this! :)
For Frankenstein mod podge any Green Fabric -
mine was leftover Duck Cloth.
(or you could paint it green).
For the face I just cut out black felt pieces.
The nose is a tissue paper covered old drawer knob and the bolts on the side of his neck were random ones I found in the house! All adhered with hot glue!
The pumpkin used 4 scrap squares turned on their side.
Now paint them orange!
I used Anita's Pumpkin Orange. :)
Tie a big green ribbon around it!
I dont' have pictures of this part - but paint your long board black.
Then I used some Halloween scrapbook paper - and mod podged it to the front!
Used wood glue to attach the spooky friends and that's it!
I'd say the whole thing took less than 30 minutes!! :)
