Zombie Dip Heads revisited
So the time is approaching to finish up the needed props and decorations for my son's 18th birthday. It is "Thriller" slash retro zombie. So as to combine the 80's with zombies.......yeah. Thanks to Michael Jackson it can be done. So I finished the zombie dip heads. Or are for the zombies? It was relatively simple, find some mannequin (Styrofoam) and scoop out hole for bowl and paint ghoulishly. I then found these platters at the Dollar Store that fit perfectly. Hot glue them on and then I added some embellishments to make them more real. Like glasses, earrings, hair clips and even skull candies (hahhaahha, I crack myself up).
I stacked them up just to be able to see them all at once.
Ok on to the centerpieces, Dollar Store vases, covered in cut out scrapbook paper. When the night comes I will put dead roses in them and a light up coaster or glowstick (depending on the remaining budget) on the bottom.
The next project I have to work on, at least when the rain stops, is the cemetery benches.
