Video: Halloween DIY: Man-Eating Plants!

Shirley Bovshow, Cristina Ferrare, and Mark Steines create "Man Eating Plants" for Halloween on the Home & Family show on the Hallmark channel.

The 7-foot-tall, "man-eating monster plant" is made using a tree branch foraged from the yard and leaves removed from a faux flower stem. The faux leaves are attached to floral wire and glued to the stem.
