Using only a few craft items (mold rubber, a paper cup, some quick-drying plaster, ink, boxes, and some moss), you can trip out your Halloween wedding guests with a faux severed finger inviting them to your spooktastic wedding. If you've got a little time on your hands and the bollocks to wig a few folks out (most guests will surely love it!), this is the Halloween save-the-date for you.

They have you using black ink, but green ink might be the ticket for a zombie wedding.

The severed finger save-the-date tutorial can be found over at Martha Stewart. Because of course it is!

If you're not down for a slightly time-consuming project, you could always consider some plastic fingers instead. Find them here. Just as spooky, far less DIY time. Because we know DIY burnout is a THING.
