Our Gravely Ghouls and Goblins

Hope everyone had a great Halloween!  I think the best part for us was the past few days we've spent putting the finishing touches to (as Denise calls them ) the newest additions to our family!

These were fairly easy to construct with pvc pipes as the forms and then newspaper and packing peanuts were used as fillers.  Denise used stakes that the pvc pipes could fit perfectly into and drove those into the ground to support each character.  The costumes were really inexpensive at the thrift store - less than $5 bucks for each costume.

I think Denise calls him the 'Mayor".  His face is a large foam pumpkin with an inexpensive white mask attached.  The hat of course a brown paper bag and even though we've been making these for over 20 years they still are a great, inexpensive and creative accessory!

Who can resist a face like this?  This little guy is made out of all kinds of things - see if you can 'spot' any familiar household items!

Our family had lots of fun tonight and we hope yours did too!
