Free Download of Creepy Treat Halloween Labels. I particularly like Dragon Eyes (olives) and Deadly Night Crawlers (gummy worms). Free download can be found at Design. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. here. These go well with the Love Manor Flickr Labels found here. *photo not my own collage, but rather download of 1 image.
DIY Arachnophobia Frames. Found at Creepy Cupcakes here. Who knew Lowes had tutorials? Anyway, totally worth looking at this tutorial and Spider PDF download from Lowes here because the frames are made from stovepipe collars (!) and they have 6 seriously creepy spiders in the PDF download.
DIY Canned Halloween Monstrosities. Tutorial from I Make Projects here. Love this tutorial because the author has so many ideas and explains how he comes up with his labels etc… Love most the part where he uses those expandable in water toys that you get for little kids at the Dollar Store. Also links to HPLHS vintage fonts which are AMAZING and FREE here.
DIY Shrunken Apple Heads. Tutorial at Martha Stewart here (for head on top). Heads on bottom by Sharon Hays $80 at BDDW.com, found at NYT here. What’s interesting is that these apple heads were made into dolls in my area in the late 1700s and 1800s – scary old looking people dolls, but doll nevertheless! Now they are expensive folk art.
