Gin received my package so now I can share with you the things I made for her. I crocheted a little spider web and attached a pin back on it. You can't see it very well, and I'm hoping my ancestors have a sense of humor because the became demons for this swap, if not I may be cursed for life now! I got the idea from Country Living. Their instructions were to put mini lights in the eyes to make them glow, but I just used green glow in the dark paint and put a dot over the eyeballs and then a tinier dot of red over that. I added the owl and black cat to the picture too.
Then I made a jar of ingredients for a "Witches Stew" for Gin. It has candy bones, teeth, eyeballs, blood suckers, and then rats, skulls and spiders. All you have to do is mix the ingredients in your cauldron with some juices and slime and let it simmer. You'll have a wonderful "Witches Stew"!
Next I made a jar of Pickled People for her. I just added some skeletons to an old jar and a drop of green food coloring and water. I thought it looked pretty cool!
I also made her another family picture and a Witches Cookbook. I found some recipes for some Halloween dishes and printed them off on to some cardstock that I crumpled and tea dyed. It ended up looking pretty cool.
