Trick-or-Treat


WohoooooOooo!
I got my hubby in the garage to set up my band saw and sander!
I wasted no time and made a couple of ghostly trick-or-treaters for a late-ish night craft party

Don't you just love them!?!
I made them up all by myself.
I actually have a couple other trick-or-treaters waiting to be made, so if I can get Lindsey and Mary B. back over here, we will get a few more painted.

Here is Lindsey's Ghostett :0)

She used a real brown bag to mod podge her trick-0r-treat bag.

Get a load of her socks!  I want some for me too.

I covet Mary's ghost's socks. 
 I had to remind her that our legs actually got switched and those zig-zaggedy leggers are actually mine.  

It got me nowhere.

Mary wins the prize because she went after the task of figuring out eyes and totally rocked it.  I just sat there waiting for someone else to make the decision.  I finally made eyes, the ran my finger through them and had to paint over them....eventually just glueing on googly eyes.  So, round of applause for Mary's braveness...

And
for Mary's sugar cookie bars!!!
These guys were good...seriously GOOD!
I will be getting the recipe.  It is probably something simple like...sugar cookie dough in a pan instead of shaped into cookies, but I am going to take detailed notes because I want to make mine JUST LIKE THESE!  I may have to wait to make them until there are several people at my house though.  Maybe then I won't eat every last one ;0)

Here is my little cutie.  I think she needs a name.  Hmmm...what goes with ghost?  or maybe Boo?  Boomhilda?  Na, I will keep thinking. 

My trick-or-treat bag.  

Don't you just love the fuzzy laces???

Ahhhhh, it feels so good to finally craft again, the woodcraft way.  Now to start thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Surely I can come up with something fun for both of those holidays, right?
Stay tuned!

  2. These ghosts are really super cute! What are the legs made out of? I'm thinking very large dowels... maybe? And I love the different bows that you gals added to them too! I'm gonna have to have my husband help me make (draw them out) some of these little beauty's too! Good work!

    1. Thank you! I keep running through the room I put her in and thinking I really have to get the other ones made, I just love the ghost so much! I used 1" dowels. If I get a chance later tonight I will send or post the pattern. I gotta get a kilt sewn in the next hour :0) Good luck with your Trick-or-treaters!!!

  3. KILT?? Is somebody going (trick or treating) as one of the men from the movie "Brave"? lol Although, your Emmalee would make a great Merida! Have you got all of your costumes ready for your clan? (Yep, I used a play on words) :)

    1. Heavens no! We mod podged paper onto the dowels before shoving them into the shoes. And yes, I am very sad I did not do the chevron paper! What was I thinking!!!

      :0) Thanks for the comment.

  5. I totally thought you guys painted or at least colored the legs with markers! I was just trying to figure out how you did it!! Yeah, I thought you gals were a little bit crazy with that, but I thought it looked really cute, so I was willing to color too! lol The mod podged paper thing sounds TONS better! So... why were you making a Kilt? Anybody in the family going as Merida for Halloween?

      My scanner is not recognized by the computer apparently so I just took a picture of the pattern. You can email me if you want a bigger file of the pattern, or just right click and save the image. Let me know if you have any questions!
