I have a couple more paper maché elephants left from Michaels, so I decided to dress one up for Halloween. I painted a candy corn blanket on his back, an oh-so-spooky mask on his face, and then made him a party hat and a trick or treat bag.

 
You'd just have to fill that bag with circus peanuts, if he came knocking on Halloween night!


The thing I love most about these elephants is their sweet little bums. I'm now kicking myself for not buying every single elephant Michaels had in stock.

SSQQUUEE!...or is it EEEEEHHH!  No.. it's Sqqquuee for sure.  Even if the eli is feeling scary, it too cute for much fear.  Maybe it's the bum Grin
