I love figures on spools. When I saw these cute Halloween spools on Pinterest, I thought, "Why have I never done trick or treaters?", and set out to make my own version.  I took figures from various Alpha Stamps collage sheets and dressed them up, adding hats, masks, rhinestones, and glitter, and then gave them all tiny pumpkins and a "trick or treat" flag. Here's the whole gang together:


Here's the first one I made. Let's call her "Patsy".


I found that pencils fit in the spool holes perfectly, so that is what supports each figure. The flagpole is made from a bamboo skewer, and glued in place with E6000 glue. The wings are actually bat cutouts, also from Alpha Stamps.


I loved making that first little trick or treater so much that I had to make a few more. Here's Benjamin. He went to live with a swap partner.  Smiley


I made several more, but the photos are so large. Here are some thumbnails of them. I also have them posted on my blog, if you want a better view.

Yup - Benjamin lives with me now and he's way too cute for words - I mean, c'mon - those glasses are ridiculously cute, aren't they?  And wait til you see the other awesome things I received - I'll be home from work in a few hours - and posting pictures is my first order of business!!

Thanks! They were so fun to make. I'm planning now on making some little Christmas elves, once I'm done with all the Halloween crafting.  Grin
