Yep- I can make some wooden elves, tomtens, mushrooms and fairies, but don't doubt the ability of a mama with a saw to turn out some fun zombies too for a boy turning 12! A simple birthday request from my boy this past weekend was friends, bowling, pool, brains, homemade pizza, and a zombie flick.
Our inspiration for the zombie was from the game plant vs zombies- did not know this game but the zombie was cute if it is possible to call a zombie cute! We mastered a very realistic jello brain dish by combining peach and watermellon jello with evaporated milk. Not the tastiest of jello but it had a great appearance!
