This is my version of Halloween balloons. I’ve seen many of those orange balloons with pumpkin faces and white balloons with ghost faces and think they’re delightfully cute, but I figured perhaps too cute for some. So I wanted to take Halloween balloon-making up a notch: balloon body parts. Last night, I picked up my markers and, like a little kid, colored away.
Hang the eyes from the ceiling and give your guests that creepy sensation of being watched. Stick the witch’s fingers on walls and doors to give the illusion of sneaking in.
Balloons (9″ round white for eyes, 9″ round peach or light pink for brains, long green – the ones used for balloon animals – for witch’s fingers)
Broad chisel tip markers (in green, blue, black, and red)
Styrofoam bowl and cup, for tracing the eye’s iris (cut away the rim of the bowl so it can sit on the balloon while tracing)
