Large Frankenstein Halloween Fridge Magnet

This is not my original idea, I found it on Pinterest….. and then pinned it to my Inspiration Board. In my using of the idea I have made a couple of small changes.
Halloween crafts Frankenstein Popsicle Fridge MagnetI took six green pre coloured lollypop sticks (The Works, for a mixed pack costing £1). I glued them with a “Tacky” PVA glue, onto a scrap of white card, which acted as a base.

I was a bit confused as to where Frankenstein has his bolts, on his temples or through his neck, in the end I chose the later, cutting them from mirror card, to secure them, then I decided to go the whole hog of fiddle fart and covered the white card with silver and then secured the bolts with the same.  It just just looks neater.  I also added a piece of self adhesive magnet tape, so it could be put on a fridge etc..

I used two sizes of googly eyes for extra comic effect and then threw caution to the wind by accentuating Frankenstein's hair and facial features with Ranger Glossy Accents, it really worked well, especially on his hair.

Awesome Halloween decoration. You could also make a ghost trivet by placing three or so sticks on the underside to hold the heat off the table. Just an idea.

I love him! Especially the one eye larger than the other LOL! And the Glossy Accents worked a treat.
