Printable Follow-Me-Eyes Ghost DIY Paper Craft


I’ll admit it, I didn’t start decorating for Halloween until this last weekend. Sometimes life, and the forgetful brain, get in the way. I had that “Oh No” moment when I walked into a store and saw their Halloween display towering down at me with laughing animatronics, creepy ghosts, and nasty spiders. Oh the eight-;egged creatures of doom, those are never allowed in my Halloween display. nope nope nope.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On the plus side, I didn’t have the Halloween brain fart last until Oct 30 where I could have been scurrying around in a desperate need to find trick or treat candy and some pull-together costume made from pop cans and a green cardboard box (recycling hahahaha). I have time to be a little creative with the family. So what did I do? Well I sought shelter in my Photoshop program and immediately began to create DIY decorations.

This year I am going simplistically cute with a small factor of creepy with my fun #FollowMeEyes creations. This time, instead of being Cubeecrafts with the Cubee-Follow-Me-Eyes, the printable Halloween Decoration is a Ghost Puppet.

These Ghost puppets can go almost anywhere.

  • Display them on a shelf so when people walk by they are watched
  • Cut the ghosts off their bases and hang them on the wall
  • place them on festive tables for that added touch of cute creepiness
  • Or whatever you find fun and decorative
  • The Ghost Puppet/Decoration is pretty simple to create and will be fun for the whole family. Simply follow the instructions below. Be sure adults do all the cutting.

    Instructions:

    1. Print on cardstock
    2. Cut out the ghost along the outer solid line, be sure not to detach from base.
    3. Wrap the base around to form a circle and glue together.
      The circle should form behind the ghost.

    4. EYES:
      • cut out the desired eye rectangle along the outer boarder.
      • fold on the lines closest to the eyes. It should partly cover the eyes
      • Fold on the next line outward so that it forms a zigzag. (see image for help)
      • Glue each tab to either side of the eyes behind the ghost
      • Trim the excess
    5. Display Ghost and Enjoy

      SUGAR COOKIES:

    1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
    2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment to beat the butter and sugar on medium-high speed until combined. Then beat in the egg, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt.
    3. Slowly, add the flour and mix until dough is formed.
    4. Roll out dough about 6mm thick with a rolling pin. Cut out cookies using a pairing knife and the Vampirina and Demi template.

    6. Allow cookies to cool completely before decorating with royal icing.

    7. ROYAL ICING:

    8. Beat all ingredients until icing forms peaks (7-10 minutes at low speed with a stand mixer).
    9. For stiffer icing (used for outlining), use 1 tablespoon less water. For the thinned (flood) royal icing add an additional teaspoon of water at a time until you reach a good consistency. Separate frosting in bowls to mix in different colors with food coloring. Place in frosting bags, and cut a small hole in the corners.

    10. Before decorating the cookies, use an edible food marker to outline some of Vee and Demi’s features.
    11. Next, decorate them with icing. First start with the main features and allow them to set for a couple of hours. Then add all the details.

    12. After decorating, allow the icing to set overnight


    Freaky Friday Mother & Daughter Spa Day


    A brand new rendition of Freaky Friday was released Sept 25, and this time it’s a Musical. While there are several different versions of Freaky Friday out there, the creators of this newest form decided to go vastly different and create it with a cast that can sing. With the popularity of musicals, why not.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Those who know the theme of Freaky Friday know that it usually features a mom and a daughter who are unable to get along and can’t see life from the other’s perspective. Some magical wooshing happens and they eventually switch places. Thus the movie follows their lives as each discovers that their mother/daughter’s life may not be as easy as originally thought.

    While this is a classic comedy, it is fun to watch with the girls and sing along to the songs. In fact, Thanks to Disney, My Sister and nieces made a day of it by having an awesome spa day and watching Freaky Friday. What a great way to spend time with the girls!

    To pull off this fantastic mother/daughter spa day you will need:

  • Freaky Friday: A New Musical
  • Large Carrying Tote Bag
  • 2 Face Masks
  • Lip Mask
  • 2 Bath Bombs
  • 2 Lip Balms
  • Manicure Kit
  • 2 Nail Polish sets
  • Lotion
  • Be sure the tote bag will hold all the spa day items so that everything is in one place and can be grabbed at a moments notice. There is no need to have a stressful search for something that is supposed to inspire relaxation.

    Now that you have a bag of holdings and all the items are inside it is time for that much anticipated spa day.

    Have a relaxing bath with some fun bath bomb bombs, use a face mask to exfoliate, make those nails shine, and keep those lips glowing. Then you and your daughter(s) sit down and watch Freaky Friday. Trust me when I say, the daughters will love the pampering as much as you do. 🙂 I mean just look at my happy nieces.

    “Solo” is the Perfect Story of Han Before the OT


    Once the Expanded Universe became Legend, many questions faced us Star Wars Fans: What incident caused the Millennium Falcon to look like a hand flying through space? How did Han meet Chewbacca and is the Life Debt still in play? What is so special about the Kessel Run? Thankfully Solo: A Star Wars Story actually highlights many of the questions about our beloved fandom. Today, Solo: A Star Wars Story is released digitally, and it will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K Ultra HD September 25.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    FYI, there will be SPOILERS below, so don’t read if you have been holding out for months waiting to see the film.

    As a die-hard fan for all things Star Wars…Yes even the pre-trilogy… I couldn’t wait to see the new Solo movie. I wanted to see where Han Solo came from, how he met Chewbacca, and just what choices led him into deep water. Solo: A Star Wars Story did not disappoint.

    The movie starts with Han on Corellia, stealing in order to survive. It isn’t long before he and Qi’ra plan an escape, which goes completely wrong. No surprise there, we are talking about Han after all. This theme of failed attempts at escaping flows well into the original trilogy with Han. Word of advice…Never follow Han in an escape plan. It a;ways winds up with the Empire and a certain amount of pain. Or ending up down a space slug’s throat. Han certainly never has a dull moment.

    Han and Qi’ra attempting to escape Corellia

    Of course the connection to the original trilogy doesn’t end there. Once Han swears to come back and save Qi’ra, He goes on a massive introduction to the original trilogy adventure. We find Han becoming an imperial officer, finding Chewie, joining a band of galactic smugglers, meeting Lando, falling in love with the Millennium Falcon, and even making the Kessel run. To top it off, we even have a surprise guest at the end.

    Making the Kessel Run

    I enjoyed the movie Solo: A Star Wars Story immensely. It brought back so many feeling of my childhood when I first sat down and watched A New Hope. I found myself Laughing, crying, and totally immersed in the Star Wars Universe. Solo truly feels like a Star Wars story and it belongs in the movie lineup to be watched right before the Original Trilogy begins. Who could ask for more when it comes to Star Wars? I give it a well deserved 5 stars!

    Actually, I know exactly what us fans can ask for…how about some hilarious concept art. I think Chewbacca may need a hair cut in some of these. hahaha

  • Harry Potter Crochet Blanket Pattern by SKGaleana

    I have created some fun Crochet Blankets in the last couple years. My Star Wars Blanket is adorable and the Video game blanket is epic. However, this Harry Potter blanket may take the win with it’s unique interacting Mandrake square.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    When I was making this blanket I wanted to make something unique, maybe a little magical. The blanket is inspired by Harry Potter after all. So I asked some of my fellow geeks what would be something cool this blanket could do. Apparently, everyone wants to pull a mandrake from a pot (like a rabbit from a hat). So off I went to make a pattern that would allow this sort of interaction…And I Achieved SUCCESS! Yes you read that correctly, this blanket allows the user to pull a Mandrake out of the pot and see it’s screaming face.

    That pattern to make the screaming Mandrake is a little difficult and requires the knowledge of increasing and decreasing stitches in a crochet shape. It also requires the knowledge of sc, hdc, dc, and tr stitches. It takes a little time, but once it is done, the square is a magical piece of art.

    The pattern also includes some of the awesome moments and symbols from Harry Potter that we all enjoy, such as the Sorting hat, Knight Bus, and the Hogwartz emblem. The blanket is an adventure to make and to snuggle up in, but after every adventure we must remember to say, “Mischief Managed.”

    If you want to make this magical blanket, then buy the pattern from my Etsy store and go forth and create your little piece of comfort.

    More about the pattern:

    The square Patterns included in this pattern are:

  • Harry Potter Initials,
  • Sorting Hat,
  • Knight Bus,
  • Leviosa,
  • Hogwartz Emblem,
  • Hermione,
  • Time Turner,
  • Mandrake,
  • Platform 9 ¾,
  • Patronum,
  • Deathly Hallows Symbol,
  • and Mischief Managed
  • This pattern also features:

  • Tips,
  • Special abbreviations,
  • and instructions on the Braid Stitch.
  • You’ll need to know:

  • single (sc), double (dc), treble crochet (tr), and Half double crochet (hdc)
  • How to decrease and increase stitches
  • Slip Stitch
  • chain
  • how to change colors multiple times in a row
    (This is a must!)
  • Braid stitch (instructions included)
  • The sample image shows what the pattern will look like when you download it. Each enclosed bracket (<>) means a color change, so there are several changes per row.
