Make It - Halloween Body Part Dessert and a Bone Chilling Trivet

 This post is brought to you today in partnership with Flora Craft ® Make It: Fun ®. All opinions and crafting are my own. Thank you for supporting the sponsors that keep me crafting and bringing you tons of fun DIY's.

Halloween is one of those holidays where you can really let loose and have fun. Where it is okay to play with your food, and where it is perfectly acceptable to make things look gross and disturbing. And I absolutely love it! Today I have a whopping three Halloween DIY's all rolled into one for you and man did I have fun creating them. Without further ado, I give you a tasty Halloween "dirt and body part" dessert served up in a hot pink "blood" dripped bowl on a "bone chilling" foam bone trivet.

So fun, right? And I think I totally nailed the playing with your food and making things gross bit too! But in all seriousness, this dessert is just a simple take on dirt and worms (chocolate pudding topped with crushed cookies, and gummy worms), but with a fun Halloween twist using gummy body parts, bone sprinkles, and candy eyes (all found at my local specialty grocery store). So although it may look repulsive, it is perfectly tasty and my kids loved helping make it!

Now that we have talked dessert, lets talk the neon pink "blood dripped" serving bowl. For the bowl simply squeeze a large amount of hot pink acrylic craft paint around the edge of a clean bowl, then tap the bowl on the counter a few times to get the paint to drip down the sides. Set aside overnight for the paint to dry. Once dry the bowl can be used as normal and even hand washed without the paint chipping.

Last but not least, the finishing touch that pulls it all together, the foam bones trivet! I used 2 packs of Flora Craft® Make It: Fun® EPS foam bones available at Joann Fabric and Craft Stores, tan craft paint, a foam knife, foam glue, and floral picks to create the perfect trivet for my disgusting dessert.

Begin by using a paint brush to dry brush a few dirty spots onto the foam bones.

Once the bones are painted, cut them in half using the foam knife and then shave off a bit of foam from the largest bones so that they can lay flat on the bottom and the top is flush with the other bones in the center. See below.

Set the bones up as shown above and cut the ends so that they line up with the middle bone. Then use floral picks and foam glue to attach all the bones together to form the trivet.

Let the glue dry overnight and the next day you will be ready to make your dessert in your new drip bowl and serve it up Halloween style on a bones trivet complete with extra gummies (because you can never have enough gummies!). This trivet will work with any room temperature plate or bowl of food, but please don't put a hot pan on it or it will melt the foam and no one wants that!

So, did I gross you out too much, or was it the perfect amount of Halloween fun?

  1. Love this! If you don't mind me asking...what store did you get the gummy body parts at? I live in Austin as well & I'm pretty sure this needs to make an appearance at our Halloween party :)

    1. Yay! I got them at Central market in their bulk section. The bones and eyes are Wilton sprinkles. I am not sure if central market has those, but any craft store should.
