Introduction: Carnivorous Plant Halloween Prop
Step 1: Supplies
Planters pot 2 styrofoam balls different sizes A pretty big stick Toilet paper Glue Rocks Hot glue Toothpicks Green and brown spray or acrylic paint Bendable wire
Step 2: The Base
First fill the pot with small rocks and insert the stick into the pot. Then attach the styrofoam balls to two different spots on the sticks after cutting mouth shapes into them.
Step 3: Clay
Put a roll of toilet paper in water for five minutes then take it out. Tear up the paper and mix it with lots of glue.
Step 4: The Plant
Cover the entire stick with clay then let it harden. I didn't cover the styrofoam balls yet because the stick wasn't strong enough.
Step 5: Finishing the Clay on Plant
Make little drooping pieces with the clay and make the base stronger then finish the clay
Step 6: Paint
Wait for clay to harden (about a day) then paint the entire thing green. Then put a light layer of brown paint blotched all over the plant.
Step 7: Details
When the paint dries cut the toothpicks in half and put in two teeth on each side. Then make fake drool with the hot glue.
