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

I love the proportions of the hand and the planter.
