So, last year's Mad Scientist's Lab Halloween party
was a bit much, so I've decided to alternate my holiday parties, so this year small Halloween party, big Christmas party. I fell in love with Target's Monster Mash line, so I let that be my inspiration.
You know I love to decorate paper bags. These are filled with themed pencils, glowsticks, vials filled with gummy body parts and these comp books (clearanced for dirt cheap after the Back-To-School rush) I covered with scrapbook paper.
These fun monster pillows
from Oriental Trading make new friends, especially inspiring while watching Pixar's Monsters, Inc.
How cute are these eggs? Perfect for our Monster Egg Hunt!
And the party couldn't be complete without making monster cupcakes!
We also made our infamous Monster Slime, although once again, no damn pictures because it gets pretty messy, and I'm am the Slime Control Supervisor. That just means I'm too busy making sure everyone's slime comes out right because I'm adding the borax solution to each bowl. Too much makes a gooey mess, so all I have to show is the end result...
For my second Monster Mash Bash, we made monster trick or treat bags. I made the cupcakes instead, and needed something to do with all the frosting, so I covered cookie balls and made these cute Monster Eyeball Cookies. Come back for my next Tuesday Tutorial
and I'll clue you on how to make them, they are perfect as a last-minute party treat!
