Yet More Stuff I Found While Looking Around

October 22nd, 2015 by Cobwebs

It’s time for another bunch of random stuff I want to share but can’t hang a whole post on. Some of them have no attribution, so if you happen to know the source for any of these please leave a note in the comments. (Click to view larger.)

Cat Rump Coasters

Cat Rump Coasters

These crocheted coasters are by Gray Matter Artistry. Put your mug on a cat’s ass today!

Save the Date

Magic: The Gathering Save the Date Cards

From Reddit. You could theme a whole wedding around this concept.

Bat Treat

Bat Party Treat

This simple party snack idea is part of a larger bat-themed party.

Garden Loom

Garden Loom

This was on a Wiccan-y site with the caption “weave a spell.” I can’t find the original attribution for this image, but the idea is similar to this nature weaving project. It’d be an interesting addition to a garden, with or without the spellcraft component.

Eyeball Manicure

Eyeball Manicure

I can’t find the source for this particular design, but it turns out that eyeball fingernails are surprisingly popular. There’s a video tutorial for a basic design.

Spider Skull

Spider Skull

Found here. This would be super-easy to do with bumpy chenille stems and a cheap plastic skull.

Barbie Funeral

Barbie Funeral

I think that what I love most about this is that they’re all vintage Barbies. The watermark says “P. Schmidlin,” there’s a “Paolo Schmidlin” who shows up on Pinterest associated with Barbies a lot, but he doesn’t seem to have a website so whatever. Doesn’t matter; if you’ve got some old Barbies hanging around, now you know what to do with ’em. (Hat tip to Kitten Herder)

Ghost Facts

Halloween Jokes

I can’t find an original source for this. It made me giggle. (via Beth)

Mrs. Lovett's Pies

Mrs. Lovett’s Pies

Dahlia Jane made these using “Super Sculpey and liquitex paint and fingers.”

Skull Cupcakes

Skull-and-Brain Cupcakes

These are apparently a kit, available (in theory) from Amazon and World Market. You could also use the Nomskulls mold and ice a brain on top.

Snake Squash

Snake Squash

I love that this Instructable says it was inspired by Calvin & Hobbes’ snowmen. That’s an excellent pedigree.

    RE: Mrs Lovette’s pies.
    Why not use a real pot pie and stick one of those fingers made from a hot dog and piece of onion stuck in it? ( the hot dog is scored lightly where the knuckles are and a slit is made at the top where a piece of onion shaped like a fingernail is stuck in.). Hey, ’tis the season.

    Re: cat ass coasters

    I saw these on Pinterest and thought at the time that it would be easy to modify them into rat asses. Then you could give them away to irksomes.

    We do actually have a firm called Lovett Pies here in the south-west of England. I’ve yet to try one of their pies, but by all accounts they’re very good.
