Face Paint: Halloween Makeup and other Halloween Ideas

In a tiny container, combine 1 teaspoon cornstarch and 1/2 teaspoon water. Mix in 1/2 teaspoon cold cream and 1 to 2 drops food coloring to create your desired color. Find an old watercolor paint box, or other similar compartmentalized container to make an entire array of face paint colors.

I got the above recipe out of yesterdays newspaper in Mary Hunts column that was titled "Ways to Save for Halloween". (Mary Hunt is the founder of www.DebtProofLiving.com)

I thought it was interesting what she said about how much money people spend on celebrating Halloween:

"How much do we enjoy the holiday that comes on the last day of October? Americans spend more on celebrating Halloween than Thanksgiving or Easter, second only to Christmas. How scary is that? Not to worry. There are dozens of ways to cut the cost without cutting out on the fun." (Mary Hunt)

Familyfun.com is another good resource for ideas about celebrating holidays. Click here to see ideas from familyfun.com for making home made halloween costumes.

I'll have to agree that halloween is a fun holiday to celebrate, especially when it come to making halloween food treats. One that I enjoy serving around halloween time is Demon Eyes Deviled Eggs. You can find the recipe by clicking here.
