Kerry also sent these amazing bride and groom zombie cookies. We celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary the day before they arrived so we thought this was a great treat. Thanks Kerry!
Here are some more of the zombie cookies. Not only are the creatively awesome in a bloody zombie kind of way, they were delicious too!
I participated in the zombie challenge over at Yarnigras Swapper Spot, so Val sent me a package of Halloween goodies! Thanks Val! I can't wait to try the homemade blueberry jam on my toast tomorrow morning.
For the zombie challenge I decided that I wanted to try my hand at paperclay. I've wanted to use paperclay for a couple of years now but have been nervous about trying it. I procrastinated on this zombie project because I afraid to use the paperclay. I had a picture in my head for a couple of years now but wasn't sure I could create it. I really shouldn't have been so worried. The paperclay was awesome and easy to use. I covered a styrofoam ball and an oval to create the body. I used wire, aluminum foil and masking tape to create the arms and wings.
It took a few days to fully dry, but here's my finished project. It's a zom-bee!
This project works out to be a two-fer. It was for the zombie challenge and it's my Crafty Freaks project for this week.
I added my zom-bee to the zombie horde, which is currently housed on the fireplace mantle. I'll move the zombie horde back to my bookshelves after Halloween. It's one big happy zombie family!
