Halloween Fun

Almost time for Halloween!  So much inspiration and some cool techniques for making spooky fun creations.  I fell in love with the faux riveted metal look by Tim Holtz .  Was blown away when I saw  Steampunk'n! by Shelly Hickox.  Knew I had to try it when I saw The Gentleman Crafter's Jacked Up Jack-O-Lantern.

I wanted to put my own twist on it so I got the idea that I could alter this nice scarecrow guy.

So cute and happy, huh?

Wellllllll . . . .

when I got done with him, he was . . .

kinda creepy!  

We have affectionately named him creepy dude at our house.  He has the Tim Holtz faux riveted metal look on his face and his heart.  Various nuts and fittings for his eyes, nose and mouth.  Copper wire for his hands, feet, and hair.  A nice collar of leaves and that faux metal flower on his hat just softens him right up.  Not!

So much fun to make!  I love him and I hope you do to.  You've still got time to make your own creepy Halloween stuff.

Happy Crafting.  Thanks for looking.
