Halloween crafting

Inspired by My Paper Crane and Viv (Instagram accounts), I took up the paint brush and decorated a few polyfoam gourds.
Both Dollar Tree and Dollar General are selling them right now.  I've even seen polyfoam gourds at our local Meijer's Grocery Stores.  
If you are curious, the wooden end of the paint brush works well for making their little teeth.  I used crafting holly berries for their noses and faux candy corn from Hobby Lobby.
 Don't you just love their personalities?  Happy crafting!

I love these! And thank you for the face painting tip...I struggle all the time with painting faces. I have used the ends of brushes to do polka dots...makes it so easy!
