JPOConnell won us over with this beautifully bone-chilling scene of a skeletal fisherman inside an artificial pumpkin. Inspired by a client and his son who love to fish, she made this Halloween decoration that they could reuse each year.
Both skeletons are covered in Martha Stewart Glow in the Dark glitter and mounted with craft wire into a Styrofoam base. Scrapbook paper highlighted with the same glitter serves as the background.
Inspired by the spider templates on Marthastewart.com, partyarty25 knew he wanted to design her centerpiece based on the song "The Itsy Bitsy Spider."
He painted two pumpkins black and one pumpkin white. Gourds and small plastic spiders were also painted black and white and lit with small electric lights. For the spider web, he spray-painted a piece of black lace white, which gave it a silver look.
With a flowerpot turned upside down, a glass cylinder, hot glue, and a pumpkin, he put together the creepy, crawly central structures.
Deborah Adams, a member of a Halloween artists group called EHAG (Eclectic Halloween Artists Group), which focuses on whimsical and lighthearted Halloweens of years past, created the lovable Brimstone for the EHAG Emporium.
Brimstone is hand-sculpted of papier-mache and painted with acrylic paint. His broom has a real sulphur crystal mounted in it.
