It was time to dress up Marks front porch for Halloween. I wanted to incorporate the chair and have ‘something’ sitting in it but didn’t know what. Several visits to several stores, I came up empty! That’s why I should always start in my basement!!! The bag that was supposed to go to the thrift store before the summer, never got there and look what happens with my procrastination!!! 😃
Guess what else was in the thrift store pile? Old pillows. Perfect for a body and cut one in half for the legs. This guy came together with very little effort. It was all right there…and everyone tells me I have too much ‘stuff’…but look what happens to it. I need that stuff…for something!
For the head, I mounted a bamboo cane on a polystyrene skull head, put a mask over it and creepy guy was finished…oh. The arm. Could only find one. It was a dollar store find.
I have to admit. I had an assistant. It was my assistant, Cole, that suggested putting the mask over the skull on creepy guy. It was way more creepy with the mask rather than just the skull.
Because this is Coles house and a PA day and he wanted to help so badly…but he also wanted to watch Lion king in his Pyjamas…I gave him artistic licence to work on a few areas. He did a fantastic job and he was such good company…he kept popping in to watch Lion king every now and again and probably warm up a bit too. It was a chilly day to be working in your pyjamas but he was way too excited to go and get dressed. 😊
I don’t know what that little skeleton animal is. But I really like him!
Turns out it wasn’t scary enough for Cole. He wanted more monsters and spiders. We’ll work on it for next year. Let’s say they have a growing collection.
