Creepy and Fascinatng Ideas

Edible EYEBALLS are always good for a Creepy Halloween thrill:

Or, go for table decor. 
 It's a kinder, gentler,but less filling -effect:

NEXT, For your more, ah, advanced DIY consideration...

...Here's a rather COMPLICATED D-I-Y from 1870,
 which came about as result of 
the plague 400 years earlier:

 Known at the time as  
"The Great Mortality", "The Black Death" and "The Great Pestilence",
 the 14th century Plague led to ... an overabundance of bones.
They had to be stored in All Saints' Chapel
 after the local monastery's graveyard began to overflow .   
40,000 skeletons;
 Frantisek Rint arranged the  bones...
 The chandelier is made with at least one of every bone in the human body. 
Some of the skulls are resting on the knees of trumpet-playing angels...

Doesn't that make you HUNGRY?!?


Okay, creepy crafting,  gross eating, now it's time for  Cranial Costuming:
A very cool DIY Tirck or Treat costume!

~the how-to is here~

The rest is up to you.
Happy Halloween Time!
