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!

Tree and Pumpkin Pets

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 Pumpkin Pets cart I cut out different pumpkins from Laura's collage sheets and put them on the cart by putting the double stick foam tape on the back to give the pumpkins a ledge to glue it on.

The treat cart

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.


Starting to post carnival pictures

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!

Halloween carnival-challenge piece

 I am making the Halloween Carnival (at least some of the pieces) from the tutorial by Laura Carson. She is also having a challenge to make your piece not in her carnival. I have made the Spooky Time Puppet theater. 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.
