Mad Like Alyce

Raise your glass! Take your Halloween spirits to the next level and toast to another successful Halloween party with champagne flutes as perfect as if they were fresh from the pumpkin patch. Add some spook to your spirit with Fog Juice Party Punch!


Pumpkin Patch Champagne Flutes

What you will need:

  • Champagne Flutes or Wine Glasses. Clear is fine, but I lucked out and found some at Savers for $1 each that already had beautiful green glass stems. This tutorial doesn’t depend on it though.
  • Orange, Green, and Gold Glitter spray paint.
  • Masking tape and plastic bags.


1. Start by taping off the stem of your glass where you want the pumpkin to end and the vine to start. Then wrap the stem with a plastic bag and secure with more tape.


2. Holding the spray paint about 12 inches from the glasses, I gave each glass just a few tiny spurts of paint, just enough to get them evenly orange, but not to get the paint solid, as I was going for a still fairly transparent look.


3. Allow to fully dry according to paint instructions. Give the orange painted half of the glass a good coating of the gold glitter paint, and allow to dry fully again.

4. Peel of masking tape, then gently tape off the already painted orange half, and wrap with a plastic bag, and secure with tape.

5. Do the same lightly spurted paint application with the green paint to the stem of the glasses. Allow to fully dry according to paint instructions.

6. Gently wash with dish soap.


Pop the top and everyone hail to the pumpkin song!



Hi! I'm Alyce.
Welcome to my journey towards living a happier and healthier life while living with PTSD and chronic pain... and never letting it keep me from my passion for Halloween, cooking, and way too many DIY projects... all at the same time!


  • One last look at this (insightful? Revealing?) makeup! I actually really loved the eyes by themselves, and they took a good 2 hours themselves. A good challenge in trying to make a flat art of round objects translated on a curved surface! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #eyes #makeupartist #inspiredbyart
Inspire by art by @xsullo
  • Eye see you! I also understand I’m not funny, it’s ok. 😂
This was actually a fun challenge, eyes are really complex and took nearly 2 hours to get them where I was happy. Of all of this, I’m really proud of the detail I was able to get in the irises of each eye, and my blocked eyebrow almost completely disappeared! This actually looks amazing compared to the first time I blocked them out. Yay for progress! #eyeseeyou #eyeball #horrormakeup #horrorart 
Inspired by art from @xsullo
  • I love finding inspiration in new places, and when @bearded_horror shared artwork by @xsullo a week or so ago, I knew I had to give it a try as a makeup! Seriously, such amazing art. I hope I did it justice! Check out their profile to see even more incredible works and compare to the original.
  • After this photoshoot im not sure how to go back to my plain black background... I mean if there isn’t ominous fog in the background, does it really even count?!?! #fogmachine #clownmakeup #scareactress #hauntlife #evietheclown
  • This is my level of excitement right now! The love I have gotten for Evie over the past few days have been amazing, thank you all so much! #clown #clownmakeup #clowns #hauntlife #scareactress
  • That’s not a Wiley grin, that’s me clamping my teeth together so I stopped chattering. This spring was BRUTAL in SD, and it was in the 30s when we shot this in an unheated parking garage. #clowningaround #clownmakeup #scareactor #scareactress #hauntlife
  • Evie is probably my favorite full-costume character I’ve created to date. It’s so fun to think a practice look I made for haunt last year will be a fully fledged character come haunt season next year! Also, I NEED these light bars @jibclimmer used in this shoot. If anyone has a few hundred dollars to donate to the cause just let me know. 😉 #clown #clownmakeup #hauntedhouse #hauntlife #makeupartist
  • If only @grave_digger_the_clown would learn to share, Evie wouldn’t have to steal his shovel! #justclowningaround #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife photography credit goes to the incredibly talented @jibclimmer
  • Hey guys! It’s been a hell of last few months, but trust me, I’ve been busy! I’d like to introduce my newest character, Evie the Clown! Thanks so much to @jibclimmer for these incredible photos... more to come very shortly. #clown #clownmakeup #hauntlife
