Halloween Fake Nail Through The Finger
This Halloween Fake Nail Through The Finger was used as a fund raising project spear headed by Susan D. from St. Paul, Minnesota. Susan says, “Last year I ran my children’s school fundraiser Boo Bash. This event raises over $5000 for our students and consists of a Haunted House, Games, Neon Fun Room, Food and Beverages, Fortune Telling, a Bootique, and a Mutation Station. With limitations on time and money, I Needed something for the “Mutation Station” that was safe, easy, affordable, and gory. Having several donated 3M Bandages and Gauze, this is what I came up with. Students who were 10-11 years old and Parents applied over 100 faux nails. This station only need 1 -2 persons to tend to applying the nail.”
