    Easy Pyrography Ornaments

    In Step 2, the instructions include the type of log used.

    This is a great project. Even if you don't have a wood-burning tool, you could paint designs onto the wood slices. It is a project that even the youngest artists can join in on. If the wood is smooth enough, parents could save their kids fingerprints and display them. Some could even be decorated with bits of felt, beads or stickers. The possibilities are endless. Thanks for sharing.

  • Amazing, Cheap & Easy, Cracked Gems & Marbles. for Fantasy & Crafts.

    Hi TrollFaceTheMan; When moving the marbles quickly from the heat to the ice bath, a kitchen frying spider might help. It is a stainless steel bowl shaped strainer or slotted spoon on a long handle.

    Hi Scotty; I laughed so hard, I nearly wet myself. I know that safety precautions are not something to joke about, but when a good joke comes along it is hard not to laugh anyway.

    Stunningly beautiful. This takes more patience than I could give in a lifetime, which makes me appreciate the work involved even more. I really enjoyed watching you complete this project.

    Cheap and Easy Gandalf Costume!

    Hi Half-blood; I am very impressed! You really came through on this challenge.You have done a more convincing job with bits and pieces than most experienced adults would be able to do with a pattern, sewing machine and store bought materials. I really like how you matched up the grey colours so well, making it look so seamless. The end result is amazing. You are very talented. How well did your friends Arwen costume turn out? I hope you enjoy having a great night out wearing your costume. It really looks great!

    Thank-you Daniel; Your reply really helps. I have some scrap leather that should be about the right thickness. I am going to try making one.

    The hammer you are using looks very interesting. Is it a cobbler's hammer?

    I had one of these when I was in high school. Over the years it has gone missing. I would really like to make another on my own. What is the size of the pattern, before it is folded? If I bought a square piece of leather, how big would it have to be for the pattern to fit on it? The piece you are using ( 5 oz. chrome)looks to be about the thickness of a cereal box. Would a piece of leather chamois work, or is that too thin?

    DIY Butterfly Wings

    Hi Natalina; You have a lot more patience than I have. I once made a pair of red "devil" capes for my son and his girlfriend in time for a Hallowe'en dance. I cheated. I found a couple of red prom or bridesmaid dresses at the local thrift store, cut the skirt part off, split it down the back where the zipper used to be and gathered it. With the tops of the dresses there was enough material to make the stand-up, peaked collars, which I lined with a stiffening material. I added red ribbons to tie at the neck. As a finishing touch, I found 4 red covered elastics and sewed them to the front edges of the capes, at wrist length. They slipped their hands through the elastics and didn't have to hold the cape to do the "Dracula pose". A black or navy covered elast...

I look forward to seeing more of your beautiful creations.Vicki

    These look great. They would make a great dessert if they were filled with apple sauce or any other fruit puree tinted red and dusted with cinnamon sugar.

    Cannibal Quality Finger Food

    Hi Tye;Thanks again for your reply. There is a Hallowe-en store in London, Ontario (about a 2 hour drive from here) where I can get the liquid latex. There is also a Michael's store there where I can probably get the food grade silicone for the final mold. The plaster of Paris is something that the local hardware store used to carry but if not I am sure that I can get that at either Michael's or Walmart. A fast drying drywall compound might work and would be more solid. It wouldn't be as apt to break if I dropped a finger. LOL. Thanks again for being so patient and also for being so generous with your time.Have a Safe and Happy Hallowe-en;Vicki

    Cannibal Quality Finger Food

    Hi Tye Rannosaurus; Thank-you for the product information. Although most of the information was out of reading range on the right side of my screen, I was able to glean enough of the information to do a search for both products. I will check for the one at Walmart next time we head out of town. As for the one from Amazon, they range from only $27-$37 but most sites do not want to ship to Canada. I found one that will, but noticed a warning on the box that it can irritate the skin. Now I understand why you went through all the extra steps of first making fingers from cement. Can you tell me what type of cement you used? Also, did you use a less expensive, non-food-grade material to do the first molds of your fingers? If so, where can I find it?

I am looking forward to making these creepy treats, but won't have the supplies in time for this year. Next year will get here quicker than we know. I am invited to a Hallowe'en party this week-end and I already have my supplies for used zombie Q-tips. (toothpicks, mini-marshmallows and caramel for earwax and jam for blood) I am also looking forward to making fried batwings from spring roll wrappers. Again, I have to find some of the supplies out of town but am pretty sure it will be worth the effort. Thanks again for being so generous with your ideas and so helpful with the locations of supplies.Vicki

    Cannibal Quality Finger Food

    This is so creepy. It seems like a lot of pre-work, but once the mould is finished it will be so handy and good for many years of gory fun. It would be nice to have moulds of every family member. The tiniest fingers might need to have the breadsticks replaced with straight, broken, unsalted pretzels. The pretzel ends that are showing could have the shiny coating lightly sanded off to look like bone. I would really like to try this. Can you buy the liquid latex and the food grade silicone at the local hardware store? I live in a very small town, so finding the products needed would not likely give me enough time to do this for Hallowe-en this year, which is only 8 days away. There is always next year though. :) Thank-you so much for sharing.

    Dear annoyingfeatures;This one sounded very interesting, but there is no video and there are no instructions. This feature has turned out to be very annoying. LOL. Was that the point of it?

  • Harmonica Picture Frame (1frame2pics at Other Angles)

    Hi Tammy; Yes, we are likely the same age. I was born in 1955.  What if you folded the paper the way we did in school and tucked a long block of wood into the valley of the folded paper? The paper to hold them together and prevent the light from coming through from the back. Maybe I am not understanding.  Let me knowVicki
