We'll get right to the point: these spooky finger-shaped pens make cool Halloween party favors and are a cinch to make -- even if you're all thumbs.

What you'll need

  • Disposable ballpoint pen
  • White Crayola Model Magic modeling material
  • Toothpick
  • Craft glue
  • Plastic fingernail
  • Nail polish

How to make it

  1. For each one, cover a disposable ballpoint pen (cap removed) with a 1/4-inch layer of white Crayola Model Magic modeling material, leaving the tip of the pen exposed.

  2. Sculpt the clay into a finger shape, forming thick bumps on one side for knuckles. Mark wrinkles and creases around the knuckles with a toothpick.

  3. Next, use craft glue to attach a plastic fingernail near the pen's tip, leaving room enough for the pen to write. (If you like, trim the nail with scissors beforehand for a jagged effect.) Use the toothpick to create lines around the cuticle area and coat the nail with nail polish in a frightful hue.

  4. Allow the clay and the polish to dry completely before using the pen.
