Halloween Inspired Craft, Perfect for Christmas Time

My sisters will absolutely get a hoot out of this craft I found on Disney's Family Fun section of their website (yes, I sometime peruse family fun websites despite the fact that I have no children)... I think we should do this craft when we are together at Christmas time. I know it's weird but my family is weird.


* Disposable ballpoint pen
* White Crayola Model Magic modeling material
* Toothpick
* Craft glue
* Plastic fingernail
* Nail polish


1.For each one, cover a disposable ballpoint pen (cap removed) with a 1/4-inch layer of white Crayola Model Magic modeling material, leaving the tip of the pen exposed.

2.Sculpt the clay into a finger shape, forming thick bumps on one side for knuckles. Mark wrinkles and creases around the knuckles with a toothpick.

3. Next, use craft glue to attach a plastic fingernail near the pen's tip, leaving room enough for the pen to write. (If you like, trim the nail with scissors beforehand for a jagged effect.) Use the toothpick to create lines around the cuticle area and coat the nail with nail polish in a frightful hue.

4. Allow the clay and the polish to dry completely before using the pen.
