A Nightmare on My Street!

This is my last Halloween post but I couldn't leave this one out!   I can't wait to show you what I did with these:

My oldest son wanted to be Freddy Krueger for Halloween.  Check out how I pulled it off (for less than 5 bucks!!!)   I spray painted those kazoos with metallic silver spray paint.   
Then I spray painted an old work glove with metallic gold & black
(This photo just shows the gold)

Then I found an old red sweater and freehanded some black stripes
I cut the tips off of the work glove and inserted the kazoos and attatched with some good ol' duct tape

Add an old thrift store fedora hat & here you have it:

I painted his face with some of my makeup.  We may add a little fake blood to the glove.   I'm sure it would've been even better with some regular Halloween makeup or face paint but it works.  He even scared some of his friends in the neighborhood!

We went outside to take some pictures because we live across from Elm Street (that would've made a perfect photo!) but the sign was gone...
Scary, isn't it?

Have a Happy & Safe Halloween!!
