Picked up this Precious Moments figurine at a church sale--it was only 50 cents, thanks to a missing wing. PM is not my usual style, so I gave her a quickie makeover with paint...I am now on the lookout for more figures to add to my Halloween collection!

Before:


I wrote up the directions for a client who has a Halloween site, how tos here:

My 3 year old has already liberated this piece for "her" Halloween decorations Smiley

I think it's funny you turned a November in to an October Smiley

It's really cute though and works awesome for Halloween

I'm sure the collectible appreciates being turned into a cool Halloween wizard!

Wonderful idea.  That is quite possibly the only Precious Moments figurine that I'd love to own.
