READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by road princess Gilmo

These are easily made and can be created to be cute or scary for any Halloween or Christmas party. Once I started I couldn't stop! My creativity took on a whole different level..using old nail polish and some spray paint and my paraffin wax, I made a whole bunch of fun! These are inedible!!

This worked out well. A quick, simple craft that hardened up nicely. I replaced a portion of the flour with ground cloves and the house smelled great too! I used a cookie cutter to make ghosts and pumpkins. Pretty good for 75 calories - LOL!


  1. Mix all ingredients.
  2. Form the dough into whatever shape you want. I find that keeping a bowl of flour handy helps in keeping it less sticky. You can cut it with cookie cutters, make your own shapes.
  3. Put your shapes in the microwave on a microwave safe plate for 30 seconds and then do so until the dough is hard.
  4. Paint it! I used food color and water, and some old nail polish to make the bloody effects and I used again some old nail polish for the nails.
  5. I sprayed some first for some mummy and frankenfingers and then the food dye did the rest for that fleshy affect.
  6. The glossy ones I put in my paraffin wax hand and foot soaker just to see what it would look like. They came out well!
