Wow! this is the first time in a year and half I have been able to add a picture. I just added a link to the fabulous Laura Carson's Halloween tutorial for a Halloween village. Starts Sept 6 so go check it out. She was the one who had the tutorial for the Halloween carnival!! 

These are two projects I made for Halloween. I love Graphic 45 's Rare Oddities papers!

Carnival- Last two creations and overall view

This is my Spinning Pumpkins ride. It has a lazy susan under it for motion. I used a round wooden tray I have had forever. The middle is a medium sized paper mache round box turned over. The top is a candle holder on a jar lid. They are all either painted or decorated with papers. Spiders add a spookiness!

Here is my version of the Skull Toss game. I didn't have that collage sheet so made my own label. The cart has the bones of a skeleton.

Here is the entire view of the carnival on my dining room table. Hardly have room to add anything next year! LOL
Thanks for all the fun Laura!

Gargoyle swing

front of swingMore carnival! Here is a swing made with the cardboard side view gargoyles from Alpha Stamps. I decided to make this instead of the Stare Down a Gargoyle. I used styrofoam balls to glue the sticks into thus the big pumkins on the side!

More carnival


My welcome signMore carnival! The Witches Broom Ride actually sits on a lazy susan so it turns!

This is the Witches Broom Ride. It is a paper cone attached to a pie pan and then covered with tissue paper and mod podge. the brooms are small dowels I cut to length and added dried stuff wrapped with sinew. They are attached with jewelry chain and jump rings. I didn't have a tinker toy part so I glued six wooden beads to a round cog from a tape dispenser with the holes facing out to attach the dowels which I ended up using sucker sticks as they fit in the bead holes great. I put a large bead on top to hold the sign. I think next time I will just buy the tinker toy from Laura! LOL

Balloon cart and Scare Meter

 I decided to use a wooden coffin for my balloon cart. I Have changed the balloons since this picture. Ther are now all in a bundle. I only had two balloons from the collage sheets so I used some of the kitty heads and a few of my own images.

This is the Scare Meter from the collage sheet. I made it mostly like Laura's with the ghost picks holding up the beads.
There will be more pictures to come!
