There is so much you can do with face paint. Whether it’s a fairy, a bloody zombie, a scarecrow, or a ghost, you can up your game on any Halloween costume with face paint. Skip the expensive mask and fake blood props and whip out those high school art class skills! You will be impressed with yourself.
There is so much you can recycle in your house that you have not even thought about. How about a jet pack with two empty upside down two liters? Wrap toilet paper around a white tee and white pants and spatter with red blood to make a mummy. Seriously, the possibilities are endless.
An old green t-shirt of yours cut up and paired with green baby leggings to make the cutest peter pan ever? You can take the face paint a step further by putting a pair of fishnet leggings around the face and painting over the holes with a blue or green paint, take the fishnets off when the paint has dried and you have pretty mermaid scales!
