I know it's the middle of summer, but I love making Halloween crafts so much I just can't help it. Alpha Stamps has started carrying peg dolls, and I've been making little trick or treaters with them. Each of these kids started out with just the basic peg doll kit, and I added a variety of little extras to make them all different.


The first one I made was a witch. I made her a black hat out of cardstock, a skirt out of gathered orange tulle, and then added extras like tiny orange buttons, bat wings, a black mask, a pumpkin pod jack o'lantern, and a trick or treat bag I constructed from a grocery bag.


Next I thought it would be fun to make a little cat. She's got ears sculpted out of Apoxie Sculpt, a pipe cleaner tail, a black mask, a vintage black cat cupcake pick, and a dress and trick or treat bag like her witchy friend.


Here's a little devil, all dressed in red. She's got bright red horns (Apoxie Sculpt), red glittered mask and bat wings, a tail made with a wrapped pipe cleaner, a skull bead, and the cutest little pumpkin treat bag ever (also from Alpha Stamps).


And then lastly, there's this zombie. I'm not sure if she's a trick or treater or an actual zombie trying to pass. She's not coordinated enough to carry a treat bag, and no matter: she's got a skeletal arm to gnaw on, should she get hungry. She's wearing a tattered black tulle dress.


Oh no, BRAINS!

These are wonderful! I really adore your peg doll creations. They are so cute... but not cutesy, if that makes any kind of sense Smiley. The details you added are great. I especially love those teeny grocery bags!

Racky...I always adore your creations. I believe my favorite is the one wearing cat eye glasses with the awesome cat mask!
One of these days, when you aren't swap swamped, I hope to partner up with you in IYP or something! You always ROCK! Cool
