Tiny Halloween Friends

Halloween in July? Of course! Halloween is perfect for all seasons. I don't know why I have been so enamored of peg dolls lately, but I just have so much fun with them. A few days ago, I made this little 1 3/4" tall witch. Isn't she cute with that little trick or treat bucket? The brim of her hat is cut from black cardstock, and the remainder of the hat is Apoxie Sculpt clay. I really like using Apoxie Sculpt because not only can you sculpt with it, it's an adhesive as well, so once you get the shape you like, you just plop it on and it sticks - no glue necessary.

Anyway, after I made the witch, I remembered that I had several different sizes of Bagatelle Boxes
from Alpha Stamps, and looked through them to find one to hold my little witch and her pumpkin.

The 2" by 2" box was the perfect size, with plenty of room for a flying bat in the background. I decorated it with some Halloween paper, and then added a vintage pumpkin cupcake pick, some tinsel, and half of a medallion on top. Voila! My little witch has a cozy place to hang out. Watch out for spiders!

Look how tiny!

She looks a bit lonely, no? I decided to make a few friends for her; little trick or treaters. A cat:

A little devil:

And a crazy bat:
Other than the bat wings, which are actually a chipboard bat glued to his back, all the ears, horns and tails on the pegs are made from Apoxie Sculpt clay.

Friends in the pumpkin patch!

And in the palm of my hand- I love these little pegs.
