Now that it’s officially fall, it’s time to get serious about the eerie side of life and prepare for the mid point between the fall equinox and winter Solstice-Halloween. So far no theme for this year, but 2014 was all about paper-links included at the end of this post.
So let’s start off the season with a bang-Ghost/Skull Smoke Bombs. These are easy to make:
-Hollow out an eggshell, wash and let thoroughly and let dry. These need to be really dry, so maybe let dry over night just to be sure.
- Using a black marker: For the ghost add eyes and an oval for the mouth. For the skull, draw eye sockets, an upside down heart (the narrow end is between the eye sockets) and teeth.
- Fill with baby powder-baking soda and flour just don’t “smoke” the same as talcum but you can use them in a pinch.
- Glue white tissue paper over the opening.
Be sure to throw outside, otherwise there will be quite a mess to clean up.
