I also realize that I talked about those candle holders for something like three posts and I apologize.
But, may I beg your indulgence for juuuuust one more Halloween thing? I promise I will then return to our regular programming (OK, there will be more Halloween things but I will spread them out a bit better).
On a whim I bought (using a coupon) one of those coffin shaped trays that they have at Michaels this year.
I wasn’t totally sure what I was going to do with it but then I saw a bag of plastic cockroaches and a plan was born!! (insider secret – that’s how all my plans start – bags of plastic bugs. It’s a quirky creative process but it’s worked so far).
Now, given my, um, less than coordinated proclivities and the fact that a hot plate was involved it’s somewhat surprising I survived the experience and that my memories aren’t of searing pain.But I digress.
My sisters did not enjoy Creepy Crawlies.
My sisters did not enjoy finding Creepy Crawlies hidden in their sheets.
I very much enjoyed my sisters finding Creepy Crawlies in their sheets!
So, not having actually matured very much since then I thought, “wouldn’t it be fun if when people reached for their candy they uncovered bugs!!!!????!!!!”And thus my latest Mod Podge Rocks project was born!
It’s pretty dang easy! There is just a bit of patience required as the dry times at various stages can be kinda long.
Also, did you know they still make Creepy Crawlers?! I was amazed. That was one of those toys I thought would be deemed to be far too dangerous these days.
And now I realize I have a trip back home to Ohio to visit my sisters coming up……..oh the possibilities………
