In reality I’ll be home handing out candy to children hoping they don’t trip over the 10 pumpkins we all carved. We go a little pumpkin carving crazy over here. This year was no exception. Rose came over to my house and we carved 3 pumpkins each and then I kept on carving more when she left… between my mom, Rose, and I, we’ve got a total of 10 pumpkins. I think that’s some sort of record for us. Last Minute Halloween Craft - Sculpey Drink Stirrers | Popcorn & Chocolate

Last Minute Halloween Sculpey Drink Stirrers | Popcorn & Chocolate

Materials:

Instructions:

1.Start with a small chunk (about the size of a quarter) of whatever color Sculpey you want – I’ll be showing you the jack-o-lantern so I started with orange Sculpey.

2. Roll the Sculpey into a ball.

3. Taking the drink stirrer press it firmly into the Sculpey ball and twirl it around a little bit to loosen out the hole. Take the drink stirrer out.

4. Take some black Sculpey and roll out a thin piece to make the eyes and mouth. I used a tiny knife to cut small triangles for the eyes and a toothy mouth shape. Press these firmly onto the orange Sculpey ball.

6. Once the Sculpey is baked and cooled, take your hot glue gun and dab a bit of glue onto the tip of the drink stirrer and then put the Sculpey ball where you just dabbed. For some of them, we didn’t make our hole big enough so we had to use the flat end of the drink stirrer instead of the rounded ball end, which is fine, but it looks better the other way around. DO NOT FORCE the Sculpey onto the drink stirrer if it does not fit – it will break (my broken bone can attest to that).

7. Pop in your cocktail and stir away!

Scarecrow and Tin Man Halloween Costume Ideas

DIY Scarecrow & Tin Man Halloween Costumes | Popcorn & ChocolateHalloween is my absolute favorite holiday. One of the best parts about Halloween, aside from all the free candy, is that everyone dresses up as something scary or something funny or something clever. It’s exciting to look out your window and see a witch and a cow walking down the street together.DIY Scarecrow & Tin Man Halloween Costumes | Popcorn & ChocolateI’m one of those people that starts planning for my costume wayyy in advance. I can’t help it! If I see a good idea I just make a note of it and start figuring out how I could make that work as a costume. Like I said, I really love Halloween.DIY Scarecrow & Tin Man Halloween Costumes | Popcorn & ChocolateThrough my many years of costumes, one of my favorites was a scarecrow. It was a little bit spooky a little bit girly and a lot a bit fun.DIY Scarecrow & Tin Man Halloween Costumes | Popcorn & ChocolateRose and I had decided to dress up as a duo costume and since I really wanted to be a scarecrow she came up with the tin man to accompany me. It worked out great and was super easy to find bits and pieces for.

This was just last year when we hosted a Halloween party. We had made a lot of different DIY’s for the party so if you need some inspiration for some decorations go check them out. You can also take a look at what the whole place looked like when everything was finished. Here are some of the DIYs:

DIY Scarecrow & Tin Man Halloween Costumes | Popcorn & Chocolate

DIY Scarecrow & Tin Man Halloween Costumes | Popcorn & ChocolateFor the Scarecrow what you will need is a plaid shirt, either a tutu like me or overalls, some straw, boots, and a hat. To do the scarecrow makeup I made a square patch on my nose with a dark blush (face paint would work too) and then taking a brown eyeliner I lined the square and made cross hatch marks around it. For the smile use the same brown eyeliner and make two large lines from your mouth up to your cheeks and again make cross-hatch marks all the way up the big line.

For the tin man costume what you will need is a grey dress, grey leggings or tights, a hat or funnel, an axe, and some neutral shoes. For the tin man costume Rose made a similar grey/silver square on her nose. She also put on silver eye-shadow.

You could go as a duo like us or choose your favorite and dress up as them or even rope some more of your friends in and get Dorothy and the Cowardly Lion too!DIY Scarecrow & Tin Man Halloween Costumes | Popcorn & Chocolate

Halloween is so much fun but it shouldn’t involve spending a lot or laboring over one costume just for one night. These costumes were simple and easy to make, which is what I love because then you have more time to freak your dog out!
