Nothing says Halloween like a Haunted House!

As many of you know I’m very active in my local Girl Scout community.  Halloween is our founder, Juliette Gordon Lowes birthday.  So as Girl Scouts we usually have a costume party to celebrate.  Last year we renewed a tradition of having a haunted house at the Girl Scout House.

This year Mr. Dons station was the evil doctor, so I had to come up with a body for him to ‘operate’ on.  First I found an old dress form that I had made using a t-shirt and duct tape.  Then with a balloon, paper mâché and yarn, I made this head.

Of course all good heads need a brain!  One of the scouts recommended Glam&Gore on YouTube who had an amazing video on how to make a heart using gelatin, glycerine and water.  So I mixed strawberry gelatin, Knox gelatin, glycerine and water, poured it into a brain mold I got at the Dollar store and after 45 mins in the freezer here’s my brain!

Using my resources VERY wisely, I found some yarn and other things and put them all together so that the Evil Doctor looked like this.

Perfect and it didn’t cost too much either.  The biggest expense was the glycerine.  The house was a great success and he was very scary!

I hope this gives you some ideas on how to use resources you have around your house to make some amazing things this Halloween!

Have a Magical Day!
