The Creepy, Crawly World of Scary Halloween Craft Projects (Fifth Edition)

7e2a5fe2acf2b4c9c84e836e38653570

During October, it’s not unusual for people to make their homes into a haunted house. Fortunately,  plenty of retail stores have been willing to oblige since September. There’s even a store called Spirit Halloween, which is having its biggest season right now. After all, Halloween is a major cash cow holiday since it has so many fans. After all, unlike a lot of big holidays,you don’t have any obligation to spend Halloween with your family. Unless your children require adult supervision. Anyway, while most people prefer to buy their Halloween decorations, others may make their own. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of spooky Halloween crafts. Enjoy.

  1. Doilies are great for spider webs.

5. Don’t mind the mummy at the front door.

1c92c9011b461e0a0e73faa025c6ad7b

6. This bony wreath can really use a hand.

7c1d80b2e7b3bcf5a2a2f999684f9499

45. These candy trees are infested.

88fb9e654e041bc2fd2172406bbeb061

50. A steampunk pumpkin can use a few nuts and bolts.

281d21c7ea150cfeffc83fc45ed92618

62. This guy’s torch comes solar powered.

908be9e74cfc840aaa4f69a000dbd524

I’m sure this little guy’s light is scarier at night. But at least his methods are sustainable.

63. Sometimes a wine bottle is all you need.

0914d8c35fcb17468999a45fa47cff4e

This person took a green one and made a witch out of it. And they only had to paint the top green for the hat.

64. Nobody can resist a witch in a candy dress.

2395eac5a51f1e56d0301f4269290330

She’s even green with red hair. Though she’s more cute than scary.

65. Want some spiders on your china?

Then again, maybe the bushes have eyes. Or someone just stuck eyes on them.

67. This house really has a severe rat problem.

70. Something’s creaking out of that coffin.

279624b81a92cbc909d2469294a2b5c8

73. Sometimes a simple metal cauldron is all you need.

Wonder if they use cauldrons like this at Hogwarts. There’s even a fake fire underneath.

78. These candles have melted significantly.

The Wonderful World of Scarecrows (Fifth Edition)

untitled2

Sorry that I haven’t done any new posts for three weeks. Since I’ve been working on a project that took me about four weeks to complete. Anyway, given that fall’s coming up, you’re bound to see scarecrows everywhere. After all, fall is usually a time of harvest. Despite that critters can get into the crops all year long. Still, scarecrows were originally erected to scare them off at a time when most pesticides didn’t exist.  Nonetheless, they’re usually made out of straw, wooden stakes, and old clothes. Yet, many communities can also hold scarecrow contests showing all the unique straw figures out there. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of unique scarecrows. Enjoy.

  1. These scarecrows will check your speed.
_102688221_capture11

Don’t worry, you’re good. But if you go like a race car driver, they will mark you down and give you a ticket.

2. Don’t mind these three old men.

0a3dc153c9b7ec3e746250aa5014fddd

They’re just hanging around in their suits. A couple even read the paper.

3. It’s always fun and games with the Cat in the Hat.

0bf4389e7682f7156f59ca17fe13427b

Though don’t see the Mike Myers adaptation. Still, this is a fair rendition for a scarecrow festival. Sure will make Dr. Seuss proud.

4.  The giant crow’s got the last laugh.

1revenge1-web

You can see this crow’s made out of trash bags. And yes, I think it could scare off any critters. Since it’s a giant freaking bird.

5. This scary scarecrow has a sensitive side.

2e2d263c56ba99d31062047c331f0e03

Sure, he might kill a bunch of misbehaving teenagers on a dark night. But he likes hanging out with the birds.

6. You won’t get anywhere rowing on dry land.

5aabaf2a10d5cf83e4a0cb449fd70775

Well, they’re supposed to be fishing. Still, like their boat name Crow-2.

7. These old folks get by on wheelbarrow.

6c43485146ef13fc87973abc3803bcf0

Since they’re homeless and their car’s been repossessed. Still, these are delightful.

8. Bet you’ve never met the scarecrow Boy Who Lived.

10-19-2017-6-36-36-AM-5534722

I’ve put a Harry Potter scarecrow before. Yet, this one at least gives him darker hair.

9.  They’re off to see the wizard. The wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Wizard of Oz seems to be a common motif in scarecrow festivals. Maybe it’s the Scarecrow. This display includes the Wicked Witch of the West though.

10. Uncle Sam does it the American way.

59d55bee79b52.image

Yet, he somehow decided to shave before getting atop of his high horse. Still, please don’t mention anything about Cheeto Fascist.

11. This scarecrow is practically perfect in every way.

4-Renee-Simon

Since she’s Mary Poppins, y’all. And I don’t mean Yondo from Guardians of the Galaxy either.

12. Curious George always drives the Man in the Yellow Hat crazy.

59e3f70cd0282.image

1024px-Chillerton_&_Gatcombe_Scarecrow_Festival_2017_27

Here he stands on a podium to spew some disparaging remarks about protestors, minorities, the news media, the law enforcement agencies investigating him, political enemies, and immigrants. The Cheeto-Fascist wreaks devastation onto America he certainly won’t make great again. Because he’s a sociopath.

17. “Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.

2017_scarecrows_02

Funny how they use an old vacuum cleaner as R2-D2. Though I think he’s supposed to be bigger. Like enough for a dwarf to fit inside him.

22. Now here’s a real straw dog.

87050a4e232296e0f0be5bccd94a0453

Well, it’s covered in burlap. But the straw’s inside. Still, better not throw a bone at it.

23. You’d call this scarecrow a real jack in the box.

20170915_134323-thumb600x450

He’s between corn and sunflowers. Has nothing to do with the restaurant, however.

24. You’d think this lady was crazy about her cats.

20180917-101605-1

Yes, they have crazy cat lady scarecrows, too. The cats seem to be plush though.

28. This scarecrow’s here to fix your power.

211704470.jpg.gallery

He knows how to connect the circuits. Though if he gets an electric shock, he burns.

29. These American farmers are just like apple pie.

7953148162b2ee215412bfc2a2306e64

Yes, it’s another rendition of American Gothic. Yet, these two don’t have pumpkin heads. There’s also a cow.

30. Seems like you’re in a Mexican restaurant in November.

1535124583128

The three mariachis wear Dia de los Muertos masks. The waiter presents a bottle of tequila.

31. You might want to stay way from this large crow.

abdfd480f0c490697dca3030542a69b5

Yes, this crow is huge and scary. So it’ll naturally make a great Halloween decoration.

32. Feel free to go for a ride?

ac8cd202a0e8060eaf98ebc16f58d13c

This scarecrow rides on a bike. Though I’m not sure if he’s Tour de France material.

Belbroughton-Scarecrows-Birmingham-Events-Essential-Marketer20150927-C5D_7879-700x467

He’s supposed to be Albert Einstein. You see, scarecrows have brains after all.

37. Hope this monster doesn’t scare your child.

c0627e8ba8605edd915fe61c37ad20fb

He’s actually Sully from Monsters Inc. Sure he scares children. But outside his work, he’s sweet guy. Just ask Boo.

38. This large straw dragon will scare the crows away.

cambriascarecrowsdragon29392

Some Game of Thrones fans must have too much time on their hands. Still, that’s excellent work on this scarecrow.

40. I now pronounce you Mr. and Mrs. Potatohead.

Durrow-Scarecrow-2017-1080x675

e8877f3d15a80d538aa1046f765d8f60

45. “It’s a Scare-Crow hanging in the field…..”

f7631653-cbe9-47e2-a609-21412af402a2_xlarge_sc-3

This is David Crowie during his Ziggy Scaredust years. Even has his pumpkin head painted.

46. You’ll be safe on this boat with him.

Not Licensed By the NCAA College Athletic Craft Projects (Fourth Edition)

craft-004.jpg

As with the NFL posts, I decided not to do a college athletic merchandise blog this year. After all, the more you do, the less crazy NCAA products you can find. Anyway, like most sports fans, while some prefer to buy overpriced gear of their favorite teams, others prefer to make their own. You can see such artistry at work with this March Madness bracket above. Yet, this mostly consists of construction paper, package tape, masking tape and string. Still, I used it since it’s something that doesn’t just reflect any one team. Anyway, for your reading pleasure I give you another assortment of college sport crafts.

Nonetheless, since promoting for other holidays is profitable, you’ll find many companies encourage people to create their own springtime town within the confines of their homes. Some of these might be the porcelain houses that light up from the inside. But there’s a putz set as well. These houses are usually made out of cardboard but are painted and covered with glitter.
