A.C. Moore 2011 Halloween items

Postby Zombie Pumpkins! » Tue Aug 30, 2011 11:08 am

For my crafty needs, I usually shop at Michaels rather than A.C. Moore, but we have one of those too. (It's Hobby Lobby that seem to be absent from my state). Comparatively, I think Michaels has cooler Halloween stuff. But here's a recap of the gruesome goods at A.C. Moore.

Bins of varied pumpkin decor greet you at the door. Also some giant spiders. These things can attach to the ceiling, and lower themselves down on a string (battery powered) every so often to startle your guests.

These items are somewhat my style. Hanging ghosts, spiders, ground breakers, tombstones, and a near-sighted witch who made a poor landing into a wall.

Image

Signs and sparkles.

Image

Light up signs and some harvest scarecrow decor.

Image

Outdoor lights and inflatables.

Image

The brothers zombie.

Image

A rack of Martha Stewert items, many of which are silhouette decals and window covers. Pretty classy.

Image

Are these new, or have they just evaded me before? Funkins offers this pumpkin light. A basic bulb, on a spring-like base, with a 2 foot cord. Brilliantly simple but effective, for when batteries are low and outlets are handy.

Image

And here are the faux pumpkins. A.C. Moore has a deal with the Funkins brand so that's what you'll find here.

Image

They offer sizes they call "large, medium and small." But if you ask me, the sizes are more like "medium, small and tiny." I tried to place some Duct tape in there for size reference. Prices range from $4 to $20. The jacks are fine for faces, but I don't think A.C. Moore is trying very hard to market to those of use who carve larger, more detailed designs.

Image

Here's a sample carving they had on display of their largest pumpkin. The foam is about 1/2" thick, and as you can see, the edges are get pretty rough looking, which seems typical of Funkin's type of foam.

Image

And buried under the Funkins, I also found this oddball specimen. It's a medium sized "Gemmy." Typically you just find these at Michaels, but somehow A.C. Moore is offering this unusual yellow version, mixed in with their Funkins.

A nice collection of photos. I haven't carved many craft pumpkins but it seems that the quality of the Funkins (rough edges) seems to be getting worse every year.
