Monster Eyeball Cookies and BOO Blocks

 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!
