I'm grade parent for Sarah's class and we were assigned pumpkin bowling. My BFF had a great idea for Halloween themed bowling pins on her blog a long time ago and I used these for inspiration. However, I wanted the class to be able to use these pins next year, so I decided to make them from 1x4s. I found a great idea on Babble and went from there.
It took me quite a while to make these because I made two sets (we are going to do bowling with bumpers for the younger kids and no bumpers for the older ones) and because I am not crafty at all.
While they don't look as professional as the ones on Babble, I think they turned out great! (And a hat tip to my brother, Brad for cutting the 1x4 for me and a big ole thanks to Dan for sanding them. I love men with power tools!)
And here they are up close and in person:
|Isn't he the cutest Frankenstein ever?|
|The ghost was the easiest to make!|
|The jack-o-lantern was pretty easy too!|
|I was originally going to make a purple faced dracula but had a really hard time getting the face to look right. So I scraped that idea and glued a bunch of wiggly eyes on the board and called it "Monster in the Night". Genius, no?|
|I used duct tape to make the mummy's bandages.|
