Last week I whipped up a batch of these fun Monster Eyeball Cookies for my middle daughters class. She had to do a "bag report" about a book she read. She had chosen Twisted Sistahs. Such a funny Halloween book. I love it! Anyway, for inside the bag, she had to choose 5 items that represent different things that happened in the story. In the story, they had a Halloween feast, and ate many things with eyeballs in it, so I thought it would be a fun idea to make eyeball cookies. Plus my kids love them, so that didn't hurt either. You just take any basic sugar cookie dough and roll a serving sized portion into a ball, then roll it in your choice of sprinkles. I put them on the pan and poked 2 eyeball sprinkles into them. The eyeball sprinkles are made by Wilton and you can find them just about anywhere anymore. I got mine at Hobby Lobby, but I've even seen them at Walmart. Then bake as directed. The kids loved helping with them too, but be warned, they make a terrible sprinkle mess everywhere, but that's what brooms and dogs are for right??!! :)
Then I was asked to help out with a craft the Young Women of my church are doing in a week or so. They wanted to do BOO blocks. So I whipped these up super quick. They are all done on 2x3 boards. They are cut at 5", 4", and 3" heights. I tied orange tulle around the B block. For the fonts, the B is Christmas on Crack. and then two little guys, the pumpkin and the ghost, are actually a font also. It is called DB Franks Friends, and there are tons more cute Halloween characters in that font. It isn't a free one, but I've used a ton and it was worth the purchase. It's actually on sale this week for a dollar from Lettering Delights. Not too shabby!
