Halloween Part 2

With the dolls taken care of I moved on to Jack-O-Lanturns. I have never made them before, so I thought I would give it a try. I first rolled up different size balls out of tinfoil, then I covered them with orange Fimo, added a green stem, and sketched on the lines. I added a little bit of chalk to make it look like a little bit of dirt, it also helped accent the lines on the pumpkin. Then I baked them for a couple of minutes you need them soft to be able to cut off the top and cut out the face. The tin foil came out fairly easily. I think they turned out pretty well for a first try. They were fun to make.

I have started setting up the scene, I moved the picnic table from my outdoor scene (it is not finished yet) and I covered it with orange and black tissue paper and added what halloween food that I had already. So now all I need to do is make some halloween candy, some party games and decorations. I think i will wait to do the decorations until I get my halloween swaps back so I can see what else I need to make. I want to make some sort of pin the tail on the donkey game and a bean bag game, I also want a bobbing for apple bucket.

Here is what I have done so far.


  1. that is such a cool idea for making jack-o-lanterns! i'll have to try it :) everything looks great, can't wait to see what the finished scene looks like!!

  2. Alicia, you come up with such great ideas I will have to try to make the pumpkins like that. Yours look fabulous. So far it looks awesome.
