Walking Dead Silhouettes

Ok, I admit, I am generally NOT a TV person.  I can find so many better ways to spend my time instead of zoning out in front of the screen – in other words, I am make myself too busy.  However, there are a few times when a show captures my attention.  And oh man, October 13th, I am so ready!  I have been eagerly awaiting the return of The Walking Dead all summer.  I have been biding my time on Sunday evenings with Breaking Bad – much more of an Eric show than a Chelsea show.  However, Sundays are back to my show in less than a week.  

This easy silhouette is on my mantle and ready for Sunday (If you are a fan, a friend, and in Des Moines, give me a holler.)  Below are a couple easy ways to decorate for Halloween or your Walking Dead premiere party, if you are a geek like me.  

 I started with a print off of an image of Rick.

I cut him out and glued him onto card-stock.  This quick-dry adhesive by Scotch is a great craft glue – I highly recommend it.

Here is my little Rick all ready to go.  

 Simply place in front of a hurricane candle holder, light the candle, and voila!  You have instant decor.  These can also be placed on the inside of lamp shades for a clearer, more diorama-like effect.  I could see an entire line-up of the cast done that way.  

Click on this image to enlarge it, and then print on heavy paper.  Cut out and then use a craft knife to cut some random holes on the inside of the hand as well.
