A sorta scary ketchup bottle

We use a bunch of ketchup - LOTS.  
My kids like it, I like it, the husband likes it.  
So I buy the big 64 oz bottles.  
After we emptied yet another one, I got to thinking 
'hey, I could use this for something'.  
I turned it upside down (you know..to get a 'feeling' for it - lol)...
DING!  Frankenstein!!!

I don't have a picture of the empty bottle but here it is spray painted green 
(with 2 milk lids waiting to be painted)
*ignore the dead grass..we are getting sod :)

{while I have this picture of my Krylon spray paint..
I have to tell you that my Candy Corn Pine Cones made 
the Top 10 at The CSI Project Painted Halloween!!  

I used scrap vinyl for the hair, eye, nose & mouth.  I covered the lids with aluminum foil and super glued them to the sides.  I drew on 'scars'. 

Here he is..testing out his surroundings.

not the best place...

Much better!

 He finally found a home in a plant.  
Kinda cute.  A little spooky.  Very cheap!

Seriously, you amaze me! I see an empty ketchup bottle and think, "I should recycle this. Oh well. Maybe next time." NEVER do I say, I think this would be a cute Frankenstein! You are too smart! Sooooo cute!

I need to send our big bottles to you! That turned out sooo cute!

You and your spraypaint kill me. This is such a great/hilarious projet. And I actually kind of liked "Frank" hiding in the bushes a bit!

Now I want to dig through the recycling bin and pull out the squarish shaped detergent bottle I put in there and make it into a Frankie!
