ZOMBIE MAKEUP

Zombie makeup is easy and painless, even if you’re not a makeup guru. Make sure you start with a clean patch of skin and place layers of craft glue and single-ply toilet paper on the desired area. Aim for five or six layers at least.
Wait for the glue to get tacky and begin to tear a small hole in the toilet paper. This will become the opening to a gash.

 

 

Using a skin-colored eye shadow, cover up the toilet paper until it looks like part of the face.  Fill in the center of the gash with darker colors, like black and green, to create depth.
  Continue to blend together all sorts of nasty colors, making sure to keep the darker colors closer to the open wound and the lighter colors farther away to keep a sense of realism.

   

Finish up the look by making fake blood using corn syrup, red food coloring and cocoa powder to thicken the consistency.  Keep in mind that darker blood looks more realistic.  Blot the blood around the wound, and make it run down the face.

PRICE ESTIMATE:<$10

 

MILK JUG GHOSTS

This decoration is great for those with a surplus of empty milk jugs laying around.
  Start off by removing any stickers from the container.  Wet down the surface with water and rubbing the area with acetone to wipe the stickiness away.
  Using a permanent marker or acrylic paint, doodle large eyes and a mouth onto each container.  Make sure to fill in each shape with minimal streakiness.
 Using a long cord of rope light, cut a small hole in the bottom of the carton and feed several lights into the incision so that one strand of rope lights can fill multiple containers.

PRICE ESTIMATE: $5-$10
