I took my youngest child, seven year old boy, shopping for his Halloween costume and after looking around a bit, he picked a Zombie costume. As we walked to the fitting rooms, he noticed a Vampire costume and decided to try it on as well. After trying them on, he was so excited about both costumes that he wanted to bring them both home. I said, no, to please pick only one. After careful thought and consideration, he announced to me, and all the other people in line waiting for a fitting room, that he was going to be a "Zomvamp" for Halloween. Puzzled at his public announcement, I asked, "what is a Zomvamp?" to which he replied, "a combination of Zombie and Vampire, see mommy, you have to get me both!". What's a mommy to do?? of course I got him both! my little "Zomvamp"!
I've mentioned before that I don't like "gory" stuff on Halloween, however, every now and then I'm inspired to make something gory. Like this necklace, for example:
If you want to make your own bloody necklace, here's how I made it:
First, draw on a scrap piece of paper, droopy blood and place a glass on top. You can borrow a glass from one of your picture frames: Don't forget to make circles on each side to pull the ribbon through to hold it.
You can also use some of the tacky stuff to adhere it to a mirror or PC monitor:
You can find it at your local hardware store or Target or Walmart:
Hope you liked this creepy bloody Halloween necklace and may your day be filled with fright.

I'm not much for gorry stuff either, even during fall and Halloween.. however with having 3 boys I had to learn to let that go and let them be creative and 'Boys'! :-)
I love the post and necklace 'craft'!!

Of course you had to give them both! That way, next year he can be a Vampzomb, on the other he will be a vampire and finally a zombie! It will be 3 years without spend money! ;) right?
