Halloween at my house is a major event with more than 400 kids seeking candy at our front door. Yes, I said 400 kids! Janice and I live in a very popular trick-or-treating neighborhood with a famous haunted house on the block. A few years ago, Janice and I found a book Simple Screamer by Dan Reeder and started constructing two large paper masks based on the step-by-step instructions in his wonderful book. The basic shapes were fashioned over round forms that we built up with newspaper and lots of tape. We baked clay teeth and used plastic balls for the eyes. After several evenings of work and a few bottles of wine - MONSTERS!! Here are a few photos of our freaky creations.
Ready for Halloween!
