I totally LOVE Halloween.  I start thinking about it in about August of every year, so I thought it was appropriate to post this guy... I built him for display on my favourite holiday!  He's made of paper and fabric mache and he's about 4ish feet tall.  I tried to make his teeth look like cracked and split wood to add to the "tree-like" effect.


Unfortunately, my husband puts on a Scooby-Doo costume and totally upstages my tree with all the kids on Halloween... but I still love my tree.

My boyfriend saw this pic when I logged into craftster.
"What is it. click on it" "SEEEEEEE OTHER PEOPLE LOVE HALLOWEEN TOO" "AWESEOME"

this has been a reenactment of our conversation. but pretty much how it went. It's a great tree though, I love it too.

That is so great!!!  My nephew's grandpa dresses up like a scarecrow every Halloween and sits in the rocking chair on their porch.  All the kids think he's a stuffed scarecrow until they get all the way on the porch and then he springs up and scares the crap out of them!!!!!  It's so funny.  Your tree is amazing!  The textures and the dimension are awesome!  The teeth are especially eye-catching and I think you definitely achieved the split wood effect you were going for.  It's deliciously evil!

When I saw the thumbnail, I thought it was The Grinch. But the tree is WAY cooler. Nice work! (I love Halloween!)
