I have been making Halloween projects up the wazoo lately for swaps and commissions which is awesome since it is my favorite thing ever! But I realized I had not made a thing for myself. So tonight my mom and I sat down to watch Hocus Pocus and I whipped out this little guy real quick while watching it. He is really simple and made out of junk but I think he is pretty cute and perfectly acceptable for some Halloween Decor!

We have a chest in my basement that all my family members throw their junk into. Just stuff that is not useful for anything really but too good to just trash. Plus my family members know I will use anything salvageable. I use this stuff specifically for these quick little projects while I am watching movies or tv. So I used all things out of it to make him. His head is a white Styrofoam pumpkin that I got for free at work since it was punctured on top. His hat was once a tiny flower pot. His hands and feet are little sparkly Christmas ornaments and leftover tiny ribbon pieces (I am a hoarder and do not throw away anything) and his eyes are buttons and wire I found on the street. I drew his nose and mouth with a sharpie. His body is a little ceramic camera nic-nac. The rest of everything are just leftover jewelry trinkets from who knows where..

Pretty simple but I lurve him!!  Cheesy

Thanks for looking!

Very cute. Man, now I miss all the little things I had to throw out when I moved into my freakishly small apartment.. oh well, I guess more will appear sooner or later.

He's sweet for a halloween decoration!

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.

I love this! I thought those were button eyes before further inspection lol...guess that means too much Coraline for me!

He has a really cute little face! And I love whatever you used for his hands and feet!
