Poison Apple Craft
Today I am sharing a fun little craft my daughter and I worked on together! I wanted something cute to sit on my buffet and go with my not-so-spooky Halloween decorations. I kept thinking of the fun decor we had seen at Disney World for Mickey’s Not So Spooky Halloween Party! I think poison apples are just the right amount of spooky and cute. We created these using Dollar Tree foam pumpkins, and I think they turned out pretty fun!
What You Need
I bought my foam pumpkins from the Dollar Tree, but I am linking to some other ones below. You could also use real pumpkins or guards! Here are the supplies I used:
- Foam Pumpkins
- Black Spray Paint
- Purple Clay – I was really happy with the consistency of this clay!
- Black Glitter Glue
- Purple Glitter Glue
I searched specifically for a pretty purple clay that would harden once it was exposed to the air. The added sparkle of glitter glue was just the right touch!
What to Do
Spray paint your pumpkins black and allow them to dry. Then, take a small lump of clay and roll it into a ball before spreading it over the top of each pumpkin. I tried to shape the clay to look like it was dripping down the sides. I used my finger to poke holes in the clay and stretch it out to form eye holes. We removed the stems and poked sticks down into the pumpkins, which was easy since they are foam. We then painted on the glitter glue and spread it all over the clay, before leaving it to air dry.
