Catherine writes at peace love sweater:

Tracy says: “Here are my homemade Halloweenie decorations! Yes, I made everything you see here.”
“Mausoleum: I printed out the inscriptions, traced them onto cardboard, then painted them in by hand. Same with the ‘Foolish Mortals’ sign. The columns are altered cardboard boxes with fruit baskets on top. You canâ€™t see it, but I drilled holed in the skullsâ€™ eyes and put a glow stick inside.
“Portraits: I printed the faces out and mounted them on cardboard, then cut out the eye shapes from the cardboard. Tape a glow stick on the back andâ€¦instant creepy glowing eyes! The frames were cheap home dÃ©cor from Tuesday Morning â€“- I cut out the centers and just used the outside. The Moaning Lisa was from a Halloween store â€“- I gave her the same treatment for her eyes and tongue.” Click for more horror! (more…)
