1  How-To "Grow A Zombie Planter Box Halloween Decor" for only $12.59 in Halloween Decor and Parties by prettysoldier77 on: October 30, 2014 10:51:03 AM

Hello Craftster community! It has been a while  Grin

So here is a quick run down of a gift I recently gave, The zombie planter! This entire project cost $12.59, (plus dirt...which is free)

I bought my hand plaster at Michaels Craft store. (http://weeklyad.michaels.com/coupons) I used the 50% off coupon, so it cost me about $11.00

I also used a scrapbooking sheet of brown paper for the planter tag. I think it turned out much better than plain white cardstock. It cost .59

Lastly, I picked up a planter from the dollar tree ($1.00 of course)

There are instructions inside the plaster kit on how to cast your hand. After the hand is cast, wait a good 13 hours. I didnt wait the full 24 hours that it suggested because I am impatient. After the hand was dry enough, I used makeup foundation and painted it directly onto the plaster hand. Then I took my eye shadow pallet (http://www.coastalscents.com/makeup/eyes/eye-palettes/pl-001.html) and a thin brush, and detailed the hand. I used brown, and green to give it a deteriorated look. Lastly, I scrubbed dirt all over it! yay

Here was my finished project.

These are the tags I used (I googled zombie planter tag) if you don't scale them down, they will be as large as the tag in my photos

5  Aaahh Zombie Invasion! (framed hanging art) PIC HEAVY in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by prettysoldier77 on: December 20, 2010 02:09:08 PM

My inspiartion for this piece was actually an Octopus tenticle coming out of a wall!

http://www.etsy.com/listing/56638710/wall-tentacle?ref=sr_gallery_17&ga_search_query=squid+wall&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=&includes%5B0%5D=tags&includes%5B1%5D=title&filter%5B0%5D=handmadeHow cool, except, no one I know digs the squid. So I changed it to zombies (cuz come on, who doesnt adore zombies?)

  My first step was to make the zombie hand. Which I constructed out of news paper, the cardboard roll thats left after you use all the wrapping paper, scotch tape, and liquid latex (left over from my Silent Hill Nurse costume http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=364250.0)

After I finished the hand I painted it with acrylic paints. Mostly Red, green and black to blend darker shades of the two.

I found a perfect frame at Michaels Craft store- it reminded me of a small window frame. My honey bought me a few planks of Balsa wood (very thin), and particle board for the back. Since I wanted it to hang on the wall it was very important to me that the finished product be light. The heaviest part was the particle board.


 Then I attached an L bracket to the wrist with electrical tape. And screwed the L bracket to the particle board.

 My hubs sacrificed one of his T-Shirts for the project. Then hammered the two pieces together.

There were a few touch ups that needed to be completed and I soon remembered why I hate super glue.

A big thank you to my honey for taking all the pictures <3

In all I think it turned out pretty well. C&C appreciated ^_^
