This week: SQUIRREL ZOMBIE BONES
Caution! Undead Squirrel Zombie Bones may, or may not, start walking around on Halloween looking for some brains to gnaw on. I used real chicken bones. But, I’ve also included instructions for Vegan Squirrel Zombie Bones. Vegan Squirrel Zombies eat “grains.”
THEY GLOW IN THE DARK!
Or, get the artwork in the "artwork downloads" column to the right. Print it out on 4" x 6" photo paper, and make sure the print size is 100%. You might need to save the file and print using a photo application.
This art is only for your personal use, and may not be reproduced. And please, if you use my artwork, send me a picture of what you made, so I can pin it to my pinterest board.
Vegan Squirrel Zombie Bones Instructions:
FIG. 1 Clip twigs into 1”– 3” sections. Try to get sections with branches starting at both ends.
FIG. 2 Sand the ends smooth, and flatten them a little.
FIG. 3 Sometimes the bark falls off. It’s OK either way.
FIG. 4 Paint with white acrylic or latex paint. Rub off spots with a paper towel.
FIG. 1 Supplies: Bones*, Tacky glue, glow-in-the-dark paint, scissors, printout, glue brush, an Altoids tin, twine, flat black spray paint.
*To prepare bones: make chicken soup, pick out the thigh, wing, and wishbones. Scrub the gack off of the bones with a green scouring pad and dish soap, let them dry in the sun for a day.
FIG. 2 Paint the bones with two coats of glow-in-the-dark paint. (You can blow-dry them between coats.)
FIG. 3 Spray paint the outside of the box.
FIG. 4 Cut out the artwork. Glue the cover on the box.
FIG. 5 Tie the bones together with twine, then tie the tag to the end.
