Homemade Head on a Platter Costume

My son Taylor is so creative and he wanted to make his own costume this year. He wanted make a Homemade Head on a Platter Costume. He usually likes to be something scary on Halloween.

I found this spider platter and a blood-dripping table cloth so we started from that. We had a box from our television that we cut up and used to make the table. When we went shopping, we found fingers, eye balls and mice to place on the table. We glued the eyes on the leaves of a plant to make it appear as if they were sitting on a bed of lettuce. We even found a heart that glowed and changed colors.

The tea lights were placed in a couple of plastic skull shot glasses and really added character, especially at night. We had so much fun making this Head on a Platter costume; it was by far the most memorable Halloween ever! He got a lot of attention and compliments this year and he LOVED IT!

Head on Platter Homemade Halloween Costume 20

My son came up with this Head on Platter Homemade Halloween Costume and it was really easy to make. He wanted to be something scary, but didn't want to buy a costume that everyone else has.

We started with a large sheet of foam core for the table top and cut a hole in the center for his head. Next, we draped a Halloween table cloth over it and cut out the neck hole. He made a platter out of the lid of a disposable foil pan, cut a neck hole and placed that over the table cloth ( it would look even better with a plastic silver tray).

We used makeup to make his face pale, gave him sunken eyes with some dark grey eyeshadow underneath, and added some fake blood to his neck where it had been "sliced". We found a large foam knife and glued that to the tablecloth. It took less than 20 minutes to create this look, but he was the hit of the party.

This homemade Head on a Platter Halloween costume was a last-minute decision but was a big hit. We made the costume in about half an hour for less than $10.

The table is made out of a cardboard box and a plastic tablecloth. We purchased plastic dishes, platter, cutlery and accessories for the table decorations. All the items were hot-glued to the table. The knife and blood were left over from other costumes. Although not everyone understood that she wasn't a "table", those who knew what she was thoroughly enjoyed the idea. In fact, she scored extra candy for trick or treating because of the idea.

Thanks to your website for some cool ideas!

Candy bowl
by: Emily

Was there a hole in the bottom of the bowl, with a bucket glued underneath? I'd think that the candy would fall out of the bowl in transit if you just had people put the candy in the bowl normally.
