Beautiful Skin?

  
Not sure what I want to fill this with or have spilling from it but….it’s finished! This can be done with any bottle or jar. For this particular “vase” I used a YooHoo bottle, covered it in tissue paper and ModPodge and let it dry. Then I used air dry clay to create the wound. The stitches are made with twine. A final coat of watered down black paint and sienna paint made it appear blotchy and rotted. Creepy/cool and totally disgusting!

Come here my pretty!

What is Halloween without witches? Spells, potions and magic oh my! Just finished up a couple of witch’s potion bottles. Made from empty Patron bottles, these beauties are covered in tissue paper and Mod Podge, painted with acrylic craft paint and decorated with Halloween labels and spiders. Pretty scary stuff going on at Jenny’s!

Pumpkin Candy Holders

I love, love, love all things Halloween. One of my favorite Halloween/Christmas movies is The Nightmare Before Christmas by Tim Burton. Jack the Pumpkin King and Sally are often my most favorite characters to replicate. Check out these very easy, fun, creative candy holders. You an find the tutorial here. After drawing, carving and hand painting, I added a couple of color changing lights I had on hand from Restoration Hardware to give Jack and Sally a festive glow. What other characters would you like to see made out of a pumpkin?
