Halloween Freebies

Hi all, don't forget to enter my jewelry giveaway in the previous post.

Thought I would give you crafty moms who make your kids Halloween costumes some ideas.

Halloween Makeup Recipes :

For Halloween, use makeup instead of a mask. Masks obstruct vision and children find it hard to breath when wearing them. Here you will find three recipes to make your own makeup.

Corn Syrup Blood

16 oz. White corn syrup 1 oz. red food coloring 1 oz. washing detergent 1 oz. water A drop of blue food coloring
Mix the ingredients together and voila - blood. Remove the washing up liquid if you want to make edible blood. Adding condensed milk makes it less transparent and more like real blood. The blood is extremely sticky and can stain skin and clothes so makes sure its washed off quickly. Use a stain remover on clothes.

Face Paint Recipe

1 tsp corn starch 1/2 tsp water 1/2 tsp cold cream 2 drops food coloring as desired
Mix ingredients and apply.

Clown Make-up
2 tsp white shortening5 tsp corn starch1 tsp white all purpose flourglycerin as directedFood coloring as desired
Mix together the shortening, corn starch and flour. Add 3 to 4 drops of glycerin to make the mixture creamier. Apply.
