I love figures on spools. When I saw some cute Halloween spools made by Lynn Stevens, I thought, "Why have I never done trick or treaters?" I loved what she did so much that I set out to make my own version. I took figures from various Alpha Stamps collage sheets and dressed them up, adding hats, masks, rhinestones, and glitter, and then gave them all tiny pumpkins and a "trick or treat" flag.
Here's the first one I made. Let's call her "Patsy".
I found that pencils fit in the spool holes perfectly, so that is what supports each figure. The flagpole is made from a bamboo skewer, and glued in place with E6000 glue. The wings are actually bat cutouts, also from Alpha Stamps.
I loved making that first little trick or treater so much that I had to make a few more. Here's Benjamin:
And a group shot:
This little fellow didn't make it to the group shot, but still wanted to be seen. Here's Charlie. He's a little shy.
