Are you hosting a costume party this year? Really, if you’re hosting any Halloween party, it needs to be costume-mandatory, right? I mean, costumes are so much fun! They’re pretty much what sets Halloween apart from all the other holidays!
These plastic animal toys know exactly how fun it is to get dressed up!
You could use these for so many things at your get-together. Decor, favors, cake toppers, food card holders, place card holders or use them as the prizes for your costume contest!
- Plastic animal toys //
- Primer //
- Assorted color paints //
- Paint brushes //
- Toothpick //
- Prize labels //
These animals may look time consuming or artistic but I promise you they were neither! Start by giving your animals a layer of primer. If you’re doing a Frankenstein animal, cut tiny pieces off a toothpick and hot glue them to the sides of your animals neck.
Now give each animal it’s first layer of paint. I did an orange jack o’ lantern, a green witch, a black skeleton, green face and paws with a black body Frankenstein and a white ghost.
Now add the details. Black eyes and mouth for your ghost (ok, this one turned out really freaky…), black face and green stem for your pumpkin, a skeletal outline on your black animal, paint the nails in the Frankenstein black and add a couple black stitches. Make a tiny witch hate by cutting two little circles from black card stock or construction paper. Roll one up into a cone shape glue it to the middle of the other circle and glue the hat to your animals head.
If your’e using them as prizes, you can download my labels here. Cut them out and attach to each one with ribbon or twine.
Now go party like the animal you are and maybe try to win a prize while you’re at it.
