You must admit, this time of year can bring out the monster in all of us, well…some of of us, at least. Why not capture this image in a “zombified” family portrait to enjoy year after year to really celebrate the “day of the dead”? Besides adding an personalized and authentic decorative touch, you’ll have guests spinning their heads with horror as they do a wide-eyed double-take when realizing they’re standing in a house of the “walking un-living”! Moiiihhahahahahahh!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • printer
  • printer & card stock paper
  • glue
  • sponge
  • black craft paint
  • scissors
  • exacto knife
  • red mini LED lights
