Making Ghostly Trick-or-Treaters and Glowing Goblin Ghosts

P1080759

How to make table top ghosts - er - trick-or-treaters.

Note: My spooky friends are designed to haunt a table or mantle or peek out from a window sill rather than hang. The tallest is 16" and the littlest fellow is 6".

With care in packing, they can be saved from year to year.  I still have two that are over 15 years old!

You will need:

Cheese cloth or gauze fabric

Spooky! Spooky! Spooky!

My little spook is actually two spooks - one spook made using gauze stiffened with Plaid Stiffy and another spook made using cotton broadcloth and Plaid GloAway Glow-in-the-Dark Gel.

When the GloAway spook is tucked inside the gauze spook you get a ghostly, three dimensional, semi transparent ghost! When the lights are turned out!

Can You Eat Those Cute Little Decorative Pumpkins?

You absolutely can eat these little guys! They are delicious!

And they may just be the way to get your kids to try out winter squash!

Rebecca (Roots and Wings) and I are working together on a little project for November to make good use of any leftover mini pumpkins; but in the meantime, I thought it might be fun to share what my Sweetie and I have found out about eating them!

I love this little book! "All the Seasons of the Year" written by Deborah Lee Rose, illustrated by Kay Chorao and published by Abrams Books for Young Readers.

It is time to start thinking about pumpkins! And hayrides! And corn mazes! And hot, buttery corn on the cob and sweet, sticky candy apples. Winter squash, Indian Corn, and apple pie! Pumpkin pie!
