One Eyed Monster Brownie Bites

One-Eyed-Monster-Brownie-Bites-Artzy Creations 1

If you’re a busy parent like myself with too many irons in the fire to keep track of,  you will love this simple yet fun Halloween treat.  This is perfect for those occasions where you have to put something together at the last minute for your son or daughters classroom or maybe you’re throwing a last minute Halloween party.  These One Eye Monster Brownie Bites are just thing.  The best part is… your kids will flip over them.

All this  recipe requires is a few simple things that you may already have in your house.  The only thing I had to go and get were the monster eyes, but they were pretty easy to find.

They look like this and I even found them at my local grocery store.  The eyes can also be found at Walmart or Michaels.

So here’s all you need:

  • (1) Box of Brownie Mix
  • (2) Packages of Eyes
  • Small Cupcake Liners

Prepare the brownies in a small muffin tin.  Check them periodically so they don’t over cook.  When you pull the brownies out, let them cool for a few minutes and then insert the eyes on top.

 I love Halloween… but I especially love decorations for Halloween that you can make in a jiffy and look really great.  This just happens to be one of those projects.  Being a busy Mom and an Art Teacher, I don’t always have a lot of the time for labor intensive projects, so I really appreciate the ones that come together quickly.  So, as you can see here, I’ve come up with a project that requires just a little bit of time and a few supplies, resulting in a fun, and not too creepy DIY Wine Barrel Halloween Wreath.

Step 2: Lay the spider web off centered in the wine barrel ring.  Lace the cording through and around the spider web to attach it to the ring.  Once you are done, secure it to the wine barrel ring by tying a knot and finishing it wit a dab of hot glue.

Step 3:  Attach your spider and you are done!

Today I have another FREE coloring page to share with you.  I’ve had several requests to create a Halloween coloring page so I decided to make this one very kid friendly.  I wanted to incorporate a witch, but I didn’t want  it be too scary .  I love how the witch turned out… so cheery looking.  If you haven’t yet tried a coloring page, you really should!  You’re never to old to do some coloring and I think you will find it’s very relaxing.  So, give it a try!

Cheesecloth Ghosts

Is it REALLY September? I’m still trying to figure out what happened to July? It’s Debbie here with Made From Pinterest and don’t kill me folks, but I’m sharing these Cheesecloth Ghosts with you today!

Made in bright Halloween colors, these stand up ghosts are bringing color back to life! Get it? Okay, okay I know that it is barely September but I can’t help but get excited when my second favorite holiday of all time is drawing near. I love, love, love Halloween. And for years I have made these stand-up ghost decorations but I have always made them in white. Well….this year I took things up a notch and decided to liven them up a little bit with some color and I love them!

Made in bright Halloween colors, these stand up ghosts are bringing color back to life! Get it?

What you will need to make these are:

  • Cheesecloth
  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Spray Paint, your choice of colors
  • Glass bottles with long necks
  • Black felt
  • Foil

Decide on the size of your bottles and then take your foil and make a ball for the head. Once you have made your ball, wrap it in a square piece of foil and crimp the bottom into a “stem”.

DSC_0609-1Insert the “head” into your bottle.

DSC_0613-1Next, take your foil and make a long “snake” for your arms. I think I made mine about 20 inches long. Crimp it together and wrap it around the neck of your bottle. Bend the arms to where you want them. I like mine not exactly level but with one arm higher than the other. Don’t ask me why.

DSC_0625-1DSC_0624-1

Okay, so now you want to cut your cheesecloth to be long enough to cover both sides of your side with some extra leftover to drape at the bottom which forms your stand. I can’t really give the length since every bottle will be different so I just eyeball it.

Then you want to take 1/2 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Let it cool and when it is okay to touch, douse your cheesecloth into the sugar water. Squeeze out the excess but not to a super, duper dry because you want some sugar to stay on the cheesecloth to harden. This is what helps keep the ghost shape.

After squeezing, place your bottle on a piece of foil or wax paper and drape the cheesecloth over the ghost frame.

Layer the extra at the bottom thickly so that it will create a nice base. Also, make sure you press down around the shoulder area so that your cheesecloth doesn’t go straight from the head to the arm. You want a nice shoulder area.

shoulder drapeLet dry overnight. When it is completely dry, spray paint with your choice of color. The biggest thing that you need to do when spray painting these is to look at your ghost from every possible angle so that you can get spray paint into the folds with no white showing. I sprayed the bottoms and up from the bottom into the inside. Cut some eyes and mouths from the black felt and glue onto the ghost face. Voila! Don’t you just love these colors?

Easy Frankenstein Craft

Easy Frankenstein Craft Main

Can I just say that I love Frankenstein?  I love almost any craft that has to do with Frankenstein. I even paint my daughters fingernails with  little Frankenstein heads on them.  Well, this year, I wanted to come up with a fun Frankenstein craft that wasn’t a lot of hassle. So, here it is, my Easy Frankenstein Craft that only requires a few supplies.

Materials You Need:

  • 11 Popsicle Sticks
  • Hot Glue
  • Scissors
  • White, Lime Green, and Black Acrylic Paint
  • 2 Paint Brushes (one thick and one thin)
  • Wire and Ribbon (Optional)

Easy Frankenstein Craft 1b

 

Step 1:  Lay out and align, 9 Popsicle sticks.  Next, lay another Popsicle stick across the others. Line it up with where the bolts in the side of Frankenstein’s head would appear to be. Attach it to the others with hot glue.  Cut another one for the bottom, but make the ends flush with the sides, so it doesn’t stick out. Then go ahead and hot glue it as well.

Easy Frankenstein Craft 2

Step 2:  After the hot glue has dried, paint the front of the Popsicle sticks lime green & let this dry.

Step 3:  Take a pencil and make a zigzag line for the hair of Frankenstein.  Fill this area in with black paint.  Make a wiggly mouth and a scar on the side of the face.  Next, paint white ovals for the eyes and black circles for the center of the eyes.

Step 4:  If you would like to make this so you can hang  (maybe as a door hanger), take black wire and wrap it around a pencil to give it a loopy appearance.  Wrap each end of the wire to the “bolts” that are on the side of Frankenstein’s head.  Cut out various ribbon to decorate.

Fun, simple, and easy!  Hope you or your kids enjoy it as much as mine did!
