Halloween!! Rachaeldaisy style


I thought I'd do my "Flowery First of the Month" a day early in honour of Halloween, and to stretch it further I'm not using flowers but just some simple leaves... 


and a pumpkin. 

No, I'm not making a carriage for Cinderella.

I'm making ...

scary, creepy, spooky and very kooky

JACK- O- LEAFYS!! 

There's no need for carving tools, and there's no pumpkin guts mess to clean up.. 
Just grab some leaves, trim them with scissors and stick them onto the pumpkin with glue, or do as I did and use BluTak. Its so easy to stick on and peel off to make changes.

I love how simple shapes can create features and bring new characters to life.
Here's Mr Big Mouth with his glowing eyes.

Have you ever noticed there are more Jack O's but never any Jills ? I thought I'd try a lovely lady with pretty eyelashes and big kissy lips. 

She got a fright when she met the next scary character

Old Grumpy Green Eyes! Eeek!!

 Jack-o-Kitty looked so serious so I told him a joke..

Q:When is a pumpkin not a pumpkin?
A: When you drop it, then it's a squash

That made him smile.

And then I made more smiley Jacks. 


I think this guy is my favourite. It's the Green Haired Zombie Jack-O-Leafy,  He's growling at you...

"HAve A HaPpyyy HaLLooOOOwEen oR i'LL eAT youR BrAins"

Susan C. said...

It's seven in the morning now, that was amusing.....now step away from the scissors and stop sniffing the pumpkins....hahahahaha.
Thanks for brightening my day.

Jack-o-Kitty is my favorite!

rebecca said...

Ah this is my kind of halloween, quiet and crafty, no lollies, or knocks on the door or heightened discussions about whether we celebrate halloween or not.

Terry said...

Nine in the morning and the excitement is mounting here too.
Your Jack and Jill lanterns are a glorious solution to designing the perfect one. You have to cut them open and scoop out the guts so you can wash and dry the pumpkin seeds. Or you can just have fun auditioning the possibilities and brightening up our day.

Janet said...

Grumpy green eyes is my favourite. Loved your pumpkins heads play.

Susan at TheBoredZombie.com said...

I lol'd! This is fantastic! I really did the laughing kitty cat. I didn't even buy a pumpkin this year and have no desire to drag out my Christmas tree. I'm either getting really old or time is going by too fast and confusing me on what time of year it is!

Happpy Halloween!
