Happy Halloween – Minecraft Trunk or Treat

*Hi, Jenny Brown has moved to hijennybrown.com.  Please come on over to read this post and see our new content!*

Mr. A is, in his own words, “obsessed with Minecraft.”  Me, not so much – why pretend to make something when we can make it for real?  Wait, now that’s an idea…  10-30-2014, Trunk or Treat, Minecraft Car167-MOTION

We planned our little scheme for A’s school Trunk or Treat.  Luckily our combined craft stash is pretty stocked, so all we bought were red tablecloths & duct tape (to make the pixelated lava flow) and balloons for the Creepers, Endermen, and Pigs (just add tape & a little paint marker).

I crocheted over wire to make the pig tail.

Craft Husband made the chest (our treat box) and diamond/emerald pick axe (there was some debate among the trick-or-treaters), which was the hit of the night.

What kid doesn’t want a handmade weapon?

I made the adult “costumes” (at this point in my life, I don’t want a costume more complicated than a sign).  Erin was TNT & I was a health heart. Just a little posterboard, paint marker, electrical tape and yarn scraps.

Do you see a resemblance between my costume and something else that makes a constant appearance on this blog?  I can say this is the first time I’ve ever dressed up as a crochet project (but probably not the last).

We had HUNDREDS of happy kiddos come to our car, and we loved hearing their excitement and seeing their cute costumes.  There was a prize for the best car, but we didn’t win.  Please excuse me while I lie in my bed all day, mourn our loss, and eat all the leftover butterfingers.      hi jenny brown, Trunk or Treat, Minecraft Car218

Happy Halloween! I hope you have a safe and sugary night!
