Halloween Ovals *GIVEAWAY CLOSED*

22 Oct

So I said was going to get another post up last Friday. Not the one that just passed yesterday— the one a full week before that.  Then I had sick kids, I was sick, and you combine that with time flying at break-neck speed, and here we are.  Life happens. Sorry about that.

But hey, let’s not look back. Let’s look forward! I have some Halloween ovals to show you! I really should have shown you the ovals first and then ended with the rectangles, because I really liked the rectangles better, which sorta makes this anti-climatic, but such is life.

So we have a set of oval cookie cutters.

Half are plain-edge, and half are crimped edge. I used the plain edge for these cookies.

First are some Halloween treat buckets.

Had a little bleeding on the handle on the one on the left, because I was lacking patience. If you don’t want bleeding, you must wait. Don’t put a dark color on a wet lighter color. Wait. Patience! (Yoda voice)

Next, some plain pumpkins.

These are easy. Just draw an oval in the center that is about three-quarters of the height of the pumpkin. Then add ridges heading outward and slightly upward. Does that make sense? Then add a stem and maybe a leaf. You can have pumpkins in all kinds of sizes. Who needs pumpkin cookie cutters?

Next, I tried just a bunch of candy.

It looks too stark to me. Maybe more candy?

Remember in my rectangle post, I made some monster faces? Frankenstein, Mummy, Dracula, and a Skull and Crossbones. Here are their oval counterparts:

Here are the rectangles and ovals together, just for comparison’s sake.

Definitely like the rectangles better, but the ovals are cute in their own way.

These next guys were my favorite, and they were also the most simple. I wanted something really easy for the smallest ovals, so I decided on spiders.

I loved doing them. They took about 10 seconds and added a lot to the plate of cookies.

And my other favorites were equally easy. Candy corn!

What? You say these aren’t ovals? Well, you would be right. But all I did was cut a sliver off of each side of the oval (at an angle) to make cone shapes. I loved that it worked, because now I can make any size of candy corn. The smallest were almost the same size as real candy corn. Cute.

Here’s a platter of the ovals:

Fun stuff.

I have a handful of sets of oval cookie cutters to give away. I’m probably not going to get them to the winners by Halloween, but the good news is that the uses for oval cutters is ENDLESS.  You can use them all year long, and then when next Halloween gets here (in the approximately 2 seconds that will take), you’ll have them to make all the pumpkins, candy corns, spiders, or monster faces you want.

Comment on this post by Wednesday, October 26, midnight, and you’ll be entered to win a set of your own. I’ll choose 5 winners using Random.org. Please enter only once.

Thanks for reading! Good luck this week getting all of your Halloween preparations together. I have 4 little costumes to figure out this week. Do you have a lot to do before Halloween?

  26. Audrey October 22, 2011 at 6:19 pm #

    How can such a simple shape give so many options! I have Raggedy Ann to finish for my grand-daughter,, and of course, I add extra pressure by still needing to make a matching doll!! But,, she is a little red head, the costume is perfect for her. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  27. Angelique October 22, 2011 at 6:24 pm #

    This is such a cute idea. Love the cookies!!

  28. Deana October 22, 2011 at 6:32 pm #

    I just went and bought round cutters and bent one to make some ovals tomorrow… but I would much rather have the ones with both edges!! LOVE the candy corn trick. I hate buying so many cutters, so I love getting ideas about how to use the ones I already have! But now I will have to bend another one of the round ones ;-P

    Oh, well. Life is like that!


  29. araleith October 22, 2011 at 6:36 pm #

    This is so awesome – those would be useful for so many different kinds of cookies!

  30. Joy October 22, 2011 at 6:39 pm #

    love, love, love them! would be great to have a set to put to good use!

  31. Kristin Frank October 22, 2011 at 6:45 pm #

    I thought the ovals faces were just as cute as the rectangles! How adorable!

  32. Kristyn W. October 22, 2011 at 6:45 pm #

    I love them all, and I’d really enjoy winning a set of the oval cutters. BTW, thanks for explaining how you made the pumpkin design w/the inner oval & drawing outwards. Very clever 🙂

    Those pumpkins are amazing. 🙂 Not too much to do before Halloween, but I’m only costuming one little person who doesn’t know she can have an opinion about it yet.

  49. Karen Knight Lowell October 22, 2011 at 7:33 pm #

    These cookie cutters would give me just the “umphfff” I need to get decorating again!!!

  50. Anna Jukes October 22, 2011 at 7:38 pm #

    Karen, you never cease to amaze me! When I first saw the oval cutters I wondered, what in the world would you do with those….until I saw what YOU did with them….WAY cute! Definitely need to put these cutters on my “must have” list!

  51. Rosemary Mach October 22, 2011 at 7:41 pm #

    And you make it all look so easy…and those cookies are so adorable. Would love to win a set!

  52. Sheila, Mom to Seven October 22, 2011 at 7:41 pm #

  53. Anne S. October 22, 2011 at 7:44 pm #

    Love the cookies with the spiders! I could really use these ovals!

  54. Linda L October 22, 2011 at 7:52 pm #

    Thank you soooooo much! Just took my first step in really decorating iced cookies tonight. My pumpkins and candy corn do NOT look like yours. But – it was a step and your blog provides all kinds of inspiration. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thanks for the chance to win a set of oval cutters too. It’s fun to know there’s a tiny chance!

    By the way, enjoy making those Halloween costumes. Seems like just yesterday I was spending a lot of late nights making Clifford the Big Red Dog, a T-rex and a Dalmatian. The Dalmatian was two then – in grad school now. It goes fast – ENJOY!

  55. Carrie Kyroauc October 22, 2011 at 7:54 pm #

    ADORABLE as always Karen! I was showing my Grandmother tonight some of the cookies I made for Halloween then I happened upon your oval post. She asked if I had made them and of course I had to say NO. My grandmother raved about your cookies and said they were just amazing. Thank you for always inspiring and sharing your talents. The more I see using the simple shapes like to rectangle and oval cutters, makes me want them all the more.

  56. Marguerite October 22, 2011 at 7:55 pm #

    I would be so excited to win these cutters!!

  57. Shirley October 22, 2011 at 7:57 pm #

    Karen, these are so cute! I love them all, but I think my favs are the pumpking buckets – love the detailing on the candy!

  59. Shirley October 22, 2011 at 7:59 pm #

    Wow! The detail! Very clever, those candy corn ovals! I think having the summer off and going to cookie camp were just the ticket for you! 🙂 Sorry to hear you were sick, though…. and if time is going by fast for you now, I feel sorry for you as you get even older!

    Una forma genial de aprovechar cortadores sencillos … ¡viva la imaginacion! Yo acabo de empezar en este mundo, peor creo que va a ser adictivo.

    How did you do the shading around his eyes? is that dust?

    LOVE all your halloween cookies! You made a lot of them! My favorite is the pumpkin with the white dots. I also love the pumpkins with the candy coming out. I have to try that. You’re so talented Karen and love all your tutorials! Thanks! Cristin (Pinkie) of Cristin’s Cookies

  166. Megan October 26, 2011 at 12:35 am #

    Karen, you are so talented- I love the shading on the lollypop stick- makes it look so real. We don’t really celebrate Halloween in South Africa, but that’s the beauty of these cookie cutters, they’re so versatile! 😀

  167. Andrew N Robyn Taylor October 26, 2011 at 5:06 am #

    Hi Karen, I’m just getting started in cookie decorating. Been doing cakes for years. Needless to say my supply of cookie cutters is very small. This set of ovals would be great since as you say the possibilites are “endless”. Thanks for all your great ideas.

  168. Kathy McGuirk October 26, 2011 at 10:28 am #

    Hi Karen, I love how you decorated the round cookies. I could use a set of ovals. Thanks.

  169. Jana October 26, 2011 at 6:38 pm #

    I love the spiders with candy corn! I also love the candy corns- what a great idea to make them with the ovals. Your treat buckets are amazing. I feel the need to bake…
