Exclamation Edible Haunted House

SUPPLIES:

2 containers (16 ounce) chocolate fudge frosting*
2 empty 1 qt. milk cartons, rinsed and dried
1 large tray covered with foil.
*You can use a thick homemade frosting instead.

DECORATIONS:
pretzel sticks
graham crackers
black licorice and red twists
candy corn
M&Ms
Foil wrapped Halloween Candy
rice crackers
Orange Sprinkles
Colored icing for writing or decorating


Tape each milk carton closed at top. Tape milk cartons together to make a house. Wrap with foil. Attach firmly to the covered tray with tape. Frost cartons with chocolate frosting. Frost the tray also to use as the lawn. Decorate with the assorted treats!

IDEAS:

*Sprinkle orange sugar on the roof of the house.
*Rice crackers make neat "attic" windows.
*graham crackers for windows and doors-highlight with icing.
*pretzel stick window panes
*M&M "pathway stones" leading to the door.
*Candy corn "icicles" under the roof

After you have the house and pathway finished add details to the lawn area. Foil wrapped candy is great because you buy little mummies, ghosts or pumpkins and place them on the pathway and around the house. Buy from the bulk section of your grocery store to get a really good selection without having to buy a lot of one type of candy. After all the oohs and ahs have subsided and Halloween is over, let the kids pick off all the candy while they discuss what to do for next year's Haunted House Spectacular!

Smile Clay Pot Scarecrow

SUPPLIES:

3 1/2" clay pot
Acrylic paint: White, Brite Red, Liberty Blue, Midnight Blue
Brushes: #8 flat and #2 long liner
Strip of thin denim fabric: 9 1/2" x 2"
Strip of red checked fabric: 7 1/2" x 2"
1" button
Jute twine: about 3 yards
Raffia: about 100 pieces, 2" long
Polyfil: fist size piece
Ultimate Craft marker: Black, fine
Pink chalk, rouge, or lipstick to rosy cheeks
Glue gun and glue sticks
Osnaberg fabric (or use muslin) - 10" circle, cut with pinking shears if possible

Use any size clay pot and adjust accordingly!


INSTRUCTIONS:

Paint pot white, 2 coats; let dry between coats. Paint flared part of pot and about half way up with Liberty Blue. May need second coat of blue. Paint red checks over the white that remains, to match fabric. Also paint a small bib and straps over shoulders with blue. When dry, add details of overalls with Midnight Blue.

Lay strips of fabric in front of you and glue several pieces of 2" raffia on each end of each piece. Then roll each into a tube and glue edges. Cut small pieces of jute and tie a piece close to each end.

Take about a one yard piece of jute and tie the center of it around the center of the denim piece to form legs. Tie a knot in the jute about an inch up from the legs and string the ends through the button, then through the hole in the pot from the inside. Tie around the center of the arm piece. Poke a hole in the center of the fabric circle and push the ends of the jute up through it. Now wrap the handful of Polyfil around the jute just below the fabric. Wrap the fabric down over the Polyfil, and tie another piece of jute around to form a ball. Pull edges out about an inch from the jute. Push head down to rest on top of the pot. You may want to put a bit of glue on just to hold in place. Adjust the gathers in the ball so the face part is mostly flat.

Mark the face on with the Ultimate Marker. Add blush to the cheeks; glue bits of raffia on for hair. These pieces should radiate out from where the jute hanger comes out. Trim hair to suit you, and ENJOY!
