A couple of years ago, I made a cat trinket box for my partner in the Vintage Halloween swap. My partner in this year's Vintage Halloween swap mentioned that she liked the cat, but she also had that she like Jack o'lanterns on her signup form, and I wanted to try something different. Using the same idea as the cat, I made her this grinning guy.



The box and the head are paper mache items purchased from Michaels. I painted the pumpkin head, and covered the box with some Graphics45 scrapbook paper (I should own stock in that company!  Cheesy) I also used some Graphics45 paper for his jaunty little hat. He seemed a little plain, so I gave him a crepe paper collar and a polka dot bowtie. The "31" on his hat is a piece from a bingo game.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

You're so great at getting all the details in there. The shading on the teeth is perfect.
