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!

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!

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!
I made a tree like I saw in Laura's carnival out of black pipe cleaners wound all together in the shape of limbs. I added a skeleton and pumpkin and decorations.

This is the treat cart. My treats are just a little different. Instead of heebee jeebees I have beads that look like food. I also have bats on sticks instead of spider on sticks. I have two colors of cotton candy. My cart wheels are wooden ones I inked.
Front of Ticket Booth pieceHere is the ticket booth I made. A little different than Laura's. I added a bench and the pumpkin in the back is actually a pez dispenser with candy in it and it works!

I had the graphics on file on my computer except for the ones I got from Laura's collage sheet which included the lanterns. the scary pumkin on the beanch and the scardy cat saying on the white banner. I hope top take pictures today of othere pieces I have made and then take a picture of the carnival set up.

Here is this year's Hoffman Challenge doll. I have mailed her off. The piece is called Wonderland. Alice is made from Judi Ward's free Bluette mannequin pattern. I made up the catepillar and rabbit myself. It is 14 1/2 inches high and the base is 6 3/4 inches diameter. I used beads to represent the legs on the catepillar. He has a little fez on. I used lots of the challenge fabric. The print was big but I loved the fabric,
