Halloween decorations are expensive. If you have some time and patience you can make your own for less than $10.

Supplies:
Styrofoam bricks - Any foam should work, I used the kind used for floral arrangements since it is strong and easy to mold and you can smooth it with your bare hands. $3.50

Sharpie Marker - To help guide your carving. < $1

Coarse File - I used a Foot Smoother from the Dollar Store. $1

Saw - To remove the largest scrap pieces. I used the saw that was on my Multi-Purpose tool. $0

Sharp Tool - To make precision scraping cuts around the face. I used the can opener on my Multi-Purpose tool. $0

Model - I had a skeleton decoration that I used as a model to guide my design. It is useful to consult with, but not necessary.

Wig - To dress up your sculpture. This is also optional.

Step 1: Carve the General Shape

Use the Sharpie to draw an outline of your design on the Styrofoam. Then use your saw to cut away the big chucks of scrap.

Be careful not to accidentally snap the Styrofoam pieces off, doing so might cause an unexpected chuck snapped off too.

Examine the soles of your shoes. Note where <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-mini/" rel="nofollow"><strong>UGG Mini</strong></a> wear has occurred. Most people seem to be amazed that their shoes wear at the rear outer corner. Most <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-mini/" rel="nofollow"><strong>UGG Mini boots</strong></a> rearfoot strikers will wear at this part of the shoe. The reason for this, which someday, somewhere a funded study will prove, is that for most heel strikers it is the point <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-mini/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Mini ugg boots</strong></a> of first contact of the shoe with the ground. Most people walk and run with their feet slightly rotated from center. Runners, however, also have what is called a narrow base <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-mini/" rel="nofollow"><strong>Mini uggs</strong></a> of gait. A narrow base of gait means that the feet contact close to the midline of your body. This creates additional varus (tilting in) of the limb. This results, for the rearfoot striker, in the first point hitting the ground being the outer corner of your shoe. Forefoot wear <a href="http://www.cheap-uggs-boots.com/ugg-mini/" rel="nofollow"><strong>ugg 5854</strong></a> may point to an individual who is a sprinter, runs fast, contacts the ground with the forefoot first or all of the above. Uneven forefoot wear may show where one metatarsal is plantarflexed relative to the others or where one metatarsal may be longer than the others. In the presence of significant forefoot wear, you are at risk of stress fractures.
Looks great. Good instructable too.
Nice job! Just be sure, if you ever decide to paint them, to use only acrylic or latex paint, and not oils or spray paint. The solvents in the spray will melt the foam. Although this can be used for some interesting effects. You can lightly dust it with spray paint, and it will give the foam a grainy, maybe pockmarked texture.
i use this stuff all the time for little sculptures. i like the face
